Procurement of equipment and weapons systems In the Defense establishment is big business—for two reasons. First, the resources required to design, develop, end procure these items are staggering. Secondly, the soundness of procurement decisions is reflected in the overall ability of the armed forces to provide effective national security. Consequently, procurement has received the fullest possible support from military and political circles to ensure that the weapons and equipment of the American fighting man are second to none. In spite of this unanimity of purpose and support characterizing the procurement effort, there are situations in which a new weapons system can be delayed from entering service, occasionally for long periods of time, because the necessary support to maintain it in serviceable condition over an extended period of service is not available when the equipment is ready to be pieced in service. As result the new equipment cannot be introduced, for to do so could result in a modern counterpart of the adage of the battle which was lost for lack of a nail.
