The problem with the MOD and almost every Military, is tradition, the Army List has been released by the Brits for a couple of centuries and they don't seem to realize that the world has changed. Intelligent Leadership is very hard to come by, and throughout History there have been one example after another, of stupidity like this, the So Called Leaders fail to recognize how Technological advancements change the change everything. When Total War comes the shock will be amazing, and nobody will enjoy it.
