US Army ventures down path to electrify the brigade | Defense News

The Army Futures Command is looking to modernize the U.S. Army by having vehicles be electric instead of using gas for fuel. Lt. Gen. Eric Wesley has stated that while the idea is necessary, there is still much planning to be done, as it is much easier to electrify a vehicle compared to an entire fleet. He also commented on how the U.S. is late to this change compared to other countries but is unsure of how much this would cost in total. Currently the proposal is working on a business plan on how to create a seamless and steady transition. This goes along with the new Multi-Domain Operations doctrine that is working to increase the amount of time a unit can be independently deployed in numerous environments.
