Off World Forces
Currently almost half of the British Army's regular brigades are deployed off-world with most serving on the French Arm against the Kafers under the aegis of the Commonwealth Expeditionary Forces. In effect the entire British Army is focused on this struggle which has received priority over all other considerations. However some are beginning to question the long term viability of this heavy commitment. The pressures of the Kafer War have meant that there are now no large scale permanent UK ground forces in the Chinese or American Arms.
