The United Kingdom is Strengthening its Armed Forces:

The UK government announced long-awaited military modernization initiatives in March 2021 to increase the United Kingdom’s defenses “across various domains.” Government Officials announced a plan to buy more naval vessels while also rebuilding the Marine Corps into the Future Commando Force. “We will increase the area of this global involvement very far in the upcoming decades,” Defense Secretary Ben Wallace remarked. “We will be working extensively over a wide global presence to prevent our rivals and encourage our friends, coordinating with our allies, and prepared to battle if needed.”

The United Kingdom has announced a $2 billion contract for 14 Boeing Chinook choppers as part of the plan. These aircraft will be deployed at the Royal Air Force’s Odiham airfield in England. Chinook helicopters have such a cutting-edge structure, a computerized cockpit, and automated flight control technology. They can go at a top speed of 186 miles per hour (equivalent to 299 kilometers per hour). Further Mk3 laser light modules were also obtained for 2.75 million pounds ($3.8 million) by the British Military. A white light lamp, red laser aim marker, thermal pointer, and an additional interrogator for friend and foe target tracking are all included in the equipment.
