The Ministry of Defence has hit back after one of Britain's most senior generals warned Government cuts will damage the Army in the long term.
A Ministry of Defence spokeswoman said:
The UK maintains some of the very finest and best equipped armed forces, underpinned by the world's fourth largest defence budget.
With a restructured, more flexible and agile Army and with £160 billion planned on new equipment over the next decade we will ensure our armed forces retain their formidable range.
