Gen. Daniel Allyn, U.S. Army vice chief of staff, has said the service branch plans to sustain the 11thÂ Combat Aviation Brigade in South Korea and buildÂ fourÂ Apache battalions under its 2017 budget plan, Defense News reported Tuesday.
Allyn told reporters that the plans are based on recommendations from theÂ National Commission on the Future of the Army that will build on readiness, Jen Judson wrote.
The commissionÂ recommended the service branch keep theÂ 11th CAB amid the Army’s decisionÂ to cut down to 10 CABs while the four Apache battalions will be given to the Army National Guard.
Allyn further said the Army is developing new technology such asÂ long-range missiles and counter-droneÂ systems,Â Breaking Defense reported.
He added the service branch initially aims toÂ counterÂ single intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms andÂ eventually deny swarm attacks, Sydney Freedberg wrote.
