Mentioned in the RAF Strategy in 2017, the MOD’s Annual Reports and Accounts for 2018-2019 (an interesting read in of itself) and, perhaps the first sighting of this phrase, was in the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR).

Since then, the term has been used across a slew of internal and external materials, but what does it mean? Here, we offer a brief overview of what you need to know about Joint Force 2025.
