Under the guidance of the new Chief of Staff IDF is embarking on a slew of far-reaching initiatives to improve combat readiness in a rapidly changing threat environment
The newly appointed Chief of General Staff, Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi is embarking on the road of far-reaching changes for the IDF, designed to better answer the complex and often asymmetric threat environment that Israel is currently facing. The first published manifestation of this endeavor is the creation of a pilot “multi-dimensional” combat unit comprising of elements from infantry, combat engineers, anti-tank forces, and artillery, as well as air force and field intelligence.
The decision to create the new unit is one of five initiatives that are now being undertaken by the IDF to better prepare it for the modern battlefield. The other four include additional resources for materiel acquisition for front line troops such as optic sights for all infantry rifles, the creation of an “operational internet” that will connect all combat and intelligence forces acting in a given theater of operations, setting up a combined command for military intelligence and the air force in order to more quickly identify high-priority targets, and finally setting up a new staff unit that will take on the topics of “multi-branch warfare and new combat technologies”.
