Asia presence extensions are possible.

• Determinants


Without exception, all our military operations will take place in a framework

multinational. Interoperability with allies remain the first condition of

collective operation.


Predictable operations will be expected to last and over time, to evolve

deeply. These two factors, changing over time, diversity in the moment

require for a versatile and responsive, response capacity

able to conduct the full range of operations.

Force protection

Future operations will be less dangerous than before, on the contrary.

The losses incurred by a quota on a theatre deep influence

on the perception that the nation of the operation, protect forces will be

Even for armies developed all the qualifications above, the number

will remain an important determinant of most operations that take place on

Sea, on land or in the air.
