Abstract: The US Army Transformation is heading the wrong way. The transformation has failed because of two fundamental problems; weight and information technology. Two prescriptions to redirect the course of the US Army Transformation has been offered. First, along with loosening the physical constraints on future fighting vehicles, the best solution is to reject the notion of rapid deployment in a reactive expedition and second, to station forces pre-emptively in those regions crucial to the US as was done during the Cold War. The rapid reactive expeditions regarding major US national interests are not feasible and are unnecessary. As it is still a decade before the first combat capable Future Combat Systems (FCS) brigade is ready to enter service, it is highly possible.
