Gen. John Murray, commanding general of the Army Futures Command, said the unit is slated to be fully operational on July 31 during a media day in Arlington, Va., National Defense magazine reported Wednesday. AFC was created to address the Army’s modernization priorities which include next-generation combat vehicles, future vertical lift, long-range precision fires, soldier lethality, air-and-missile defense and network capabilities.

The Senate approved Murray as the command’s chief in August 2018 after the Army selected Austin, Texas, as the AFC headquarters. The service branch expects more than 500 personnel to be stationed at the AFC complex.
