Plan Centaur

Addressing maintenance constraints within the Armoured Cavalry Regiments (ACR) is the initial focus of Plan Centaur – the most comprehensive and significant improvement program in 30 years to consider the way RAEME may deliver maintenance to Army in the future.



Plan CENTAUR, Army’s reform program to improve Land materiel effectiveness, has been approved to undertake its final 18-months of work to implement reforms that have been directed or recommended through the Program’s lifespan.

COL Colin Blyth, Director CENTAUR, said that work undertaken by the Program to date has set the conditions for reform to occur and projects completed in previous stages have developed capabilities to enable structural changes to be made.

“The reforms are designed to support a modernised Land Force and inform the decisions about introducing new capability – ensuring support systems are by design, not default. Army is improving its Smart Buyer credentials to ensure capability risks are understood and that Land materiel is affordable in the future,” COL Blyth said.
