77th Brigade

77th Brigade is a combined Regular Army and Army Reserve unit. The Reserve element draws specialists on a nationwide basis. This new Brigade aims to challenge the difficulties of modern warfare using non-lethal engagement and legitimate non-military levers as a means to adapt behaviours of the opposing forces and adversaries.

Who are we?

77th Brigade is formed from; the Military Stabilisation and Support Group, Media Operations Group, 15 Psychological Operations Group and the Security Capacity Building team.

The 4 individual units above were reshaped and formed the structure of 77th Brigade.

What we do

77th Brigade is an agent of change; through targeted Information Activity and Outreach it contributes to the success of military objectives in support of Land Component Commanders, whilst reducing the cost in casualties and resources. 

77th Brigade outputs are a fundamental part of the Army’s Integrated Action model. 

Aside from the delivery and support of Information Activities and Outreach (the latter encompassing Capacity Building, Infrastructure and Support to Governance), the Brigade has a role in planning and advising both across the Army and wider Defence.
