Army 2025 Strategy

ARMY25 is a change strategy for the period 2019 to 2025.

Its objective is to meet the Chief of Army's vision of a modern, agile, highly adaptive, light combat force. As part of the ARMY25 themes and the NZDF Strategic Plan 2025 to be an 'Integrated Defence Force', the Army is focusing effort on four investment themes over the next five years:

  • People

  • Information

  • Relationships

  • Capability Enhancement

In order to achieve Army's mission and end-state, approved projects and initiatives are run under each theme to produce the change our Army needs.

Projects cover a range of new capabilities we are looking to introduce into service such as Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS or drones), through to ensuring Army personnel are provided with the learning opportunities to succeed on the future battlefield.

The plan outlines the focus we must take, and the Lines of Effort we must concentrate on to ensure New Zealand Army remains trained, equipped and ready to respond to Government direction for future operations - both within our communities, our region, and around the world.” ‒ Major General John Boswell, Chief of Army.
