Gen. Daniel Allyn, U.S. Army vice chief of staff, has said the service branch plans to sustain the 11th Combat Aviation Brigade in South Korea and build four Apache battalions under its 2017 budget plan, Defense News reported Tuesday.

Allyn told reporters that the plans are based on recommendations from the National Commission on the Future of the Army that will build on readiness, Jen Judson wrote.

The commission recommended the service branch keep the 11th CAB amid the Army’s decision to cut down to 10 CABs while the four Apache battalions will be given to the Army National Guard.

Allyn further said the Army is developing new technology such as long-range missiles and counter-drone systems, Breaking Defense reported.

He added the service branch initially aims to counter single intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms and eventually deny swarm attacks, Sydney Freedberg wrote.
