"The Brigade was formed this year from the merger of 7 Armoured Brigade and 49(East) Brigade as part of the structural changes made under Army 2020. It is one of eight adaptive force Brigades trained to provide units for overseas operations, work with partner nations, provide units for standing commitments, such as in the Falkland Islands, and civil protection in the UK."
