1st Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles doing work with Commando Helicopter Force...

Is it just me or does the ops tempo of the UK's 16th Air Assault Brigade been ticking up quite a bit lately?  Seen reports about the UK Army/Ministry Of Defense talking about having to "go it alone" and slashing the Royal Navy to pay for the upgrades to make that happen but as much as I detest the idea of any nation (including the UK) latching onto US defense spending to bolster themselves, I think the "independent operations" concept being pushed by some is batshit crazy.

One thing is certain. 

The budget wars in the UK is about to get nastier than it already is.  I wonder if it's just a predictor of things to come for the US DoD.
