IF, big IF a war of nation on nation started TODAY, and lets just throw it out there that PM JT suddenly changed his heart and multiplied the defence budget many times over, how soon could we have those armoured reserve units manning AFV and ready to do their jobs as intended?
There is no such thing as a majic wand that will produce a Div of Armour vehicles overnight with fully trained, even partially trained, crews and support troops and vehicles.
It takes years to gear up, tool and produce armour vehicles and their support equipment and vehicles. A future war may be over well before JT could make that decision.
