This basing plan locates all three Reaction Force Brigades, along with the three Armoured Regiments and the six Armoured Infantry Battalions in the Salisbury Plain training area. The brigade will contain a wide range of military disciplines allowing the conduct of a spectrum of military tasks. The Infantry is divided for administrative purposes into five divisions with battalions being trained and equipped to operate in one of five main roles: Under the arms-plot system, a battalion would spend between two and six years in one role, before re-training for another. The Royal Engineers (RE) currently maintain three reserve regiments with specialist roles, in addition to multiple separate specialist sub-units. The Adjutant General's Corps provides administrative, police and disciplinary and educational support to the army. Since the end of the Vietnam War, the U.S. Army has been all-volunteer— meaning no one is drafted—and as always, everyone receives a salary.

The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment (HCMR) and King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery are units whose primary function is ceremonial. The command structure is hierarchical with divisions and brigades responsible for administering groupings of smaller units. Phase two training enables the individual to join an operational unit prepared to contribute to operational effectiveness. The Royal Artillery undertakes seven different roles: The Royal Engineers is a corps of 15 regiments in the regular army providing military engineering (civil engineering, assault engineering and demolition) capabilities to the field army and facilities management expertise within garrisons.

Following a review of the operation of the army it has been demonstrated that the system is inefficient and the system is being phased out, with battalions specialising in role—this will see armoured infantry, mechanised infantry and air assault battalions remaining in a single posting; however, light infantry battalions will continue to be periodically rotated between postings.
