In November 2020, the Prime Minister announced an increase in Defence spending of £16.5 billion over four years.

On 21 February 2021, the MOD issued the Defence Equipment Plan 2021 reflecting the outcome of that increase in funding and of the Government’s Integrated Review which has informed the Department’s strategy and policy goals.

The Corporate Report outlines the various organisations involved in the planning and delivery of the equipment plan, describes how Defence takes decisions about investment in military capability, and provides an analysis of investment across the various sectors (Navy Command, Army Command, Air Command, UK Strategic Command, Defence Nuclear Organisation, and Strategic Programmes).

The Defence Equipment Plan 2021 is available to download from the UK Gov website here.
