Volunteer and ex-regular members of the Reserve Forces will continue to deploy to Afghanistan as part of this integrated force package, and we expect to issue around 530 call-out notices. On completion of their mobilisation procedures the reservists will undertake a period of training and, where applicable, integration with their respective receiving units. The majority will serve on operations for around six months. As part of this commitment we expect up to 24 members of the sponsored reserves to be in theatre at any one time.
The UK's conventional force level will remain at 9,500 for the duration of the deployment.
 20th Armoured Brigade's planned replacement formation is 12 Mechanized Brigade during 2012.
