leaders to successfully adapt to these complexities, we need to develop integrative doctrine, force structure, training, materiel, leadership, and education. The battlefeld is not the place for maneuver units or other enablers to work together on a complex UE problem for the frst time. ("Changes to British CBRN . . ." continued from page 18) Endnotes: ● No. 27 Squadron RAF Regiment. No. 27 Squadron RAF Regiment retains the Integrated Biological Detection System. It is roughly equivalent to a U.S. Army Chemical Corps Biological Integrated Detection System company. It also maintains the sampling and identifcation of biological, chemical, and radiological agents capability. 1 ATTP 3-90.15, Site Exploitation Operations, 8 July 2010. 2 Army Unifed Exploitation Concept of Operations, 2012– 2018, Capabilities Development Integration Directorate, Mission Command Center of Excellence, U.S. Army Combined Arms Center, 19 June 2012. 3 National Military Strategy to Combat Weapons of Mass Destruction, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 13 February 2006.

Reference: All Army Activities (ALARACT) Message 244/2011, Development of the Army Exploitation Concept, 28 June 2011. U.S. Army Chemical Corps dismounted reconnaissance and surveillance platoons grouped together. It retains a number of Multipurpose Decontamination Systems for the decontamination of supporting assets. ● No. 2623 Squadron Royal Auxiliary Air Force Regiment. No. 2623 Squadron Royal Auxiliary Air Force Regiment is equivalent to an Air National Guard unit. It provides reinforcements to No. 26 and No. 27 Squadrons. ● A specialist training unit. No. 20 Wing Regiment currently conducts its own, in-house training; however, this training will become the responsibility of the Defence CBRN Centre in the future. In addition to providing the specialized CBRN capabilities of a force deployed by the U. K., No. 20 Wing also provides elements of the U.K. Technical Response Force, which supports chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high-yield explosives (CBRNE) counterterrorist capabilities for homeland defense. The Way Ahead At the core of the RAF FP capability is the RAF Regiment; it "fghts on the ground for control of the air." All RAF Regiment personnel are trained as infantry soldiers before their FP skills are further developed. Because CBRN defense is a core element of the broader FP mission, the RAF Regiment possesses more CBRN defense-trained and -experienced personnel than any equivalent U.K. military unit. The RAF Regiment is committed to delivering specialized CBRN capabilities to U.K. defense assets and coalition and partner nations alongside its core air FP mission. The RAF Regiment acknowledges the far greater size, capability, and CBRN career focus of the U.S. Army Chemical Corps and looks forward to forging links and further developing professional relationships and friendships with the Chemical Corps.
