This study critically examines the impact of threat, military strategy and its revised missions, and emerging technologies on the equipment requirements for the Infantry Division Light in the 1990s. Besides the predictive use of expert judgements from certain definitive works on infantry, the study also uses an historical approach to compare and contrast contemporary infantry equipment requirements. The resulting synthesis provides valuable insights into the future battlefields, as well as the roles and equipment for light infantry forces. The study concludes with a recommended list of equipment changes which could make an order-of-magnitude difference in the overall performance of the Infantry Division Light.
