The aim of this publication is to describe the capabilities of armour in order to provide an understanding of their contribution to the comprehensive range of military activities within a ‘whole-of-government’ approach to national security. This is the capstone publication for armour as part of the Land Warfare Doctrine Operation Series.

LWD 3-3-4 provides corps non-specialists with an understanding of the capabilities of the organisation and its raise, train and sustain role. It is a useful reference for government and non-government agencies working with the Army

This publication draws upon the philosophy and the planning and execution of operations described in Land Warfare Doctrine 3-0, Operations and guides companion doctrine on specific environmental and operational contexts as well as subordinate doctrine on techniques and procedures.
