The tactical cloud, or combat cloud, is the latest manifestation of Network Centric Warfare (NCW) as a multi-domain command and control system. Our analysis has shown that all technologically advanced nations are developing combat cloud solutions for their military, including China and Russia. For Europe, there is an opportunity to collaborate more closely to develop its own combat cloud and thus overcome today's problems with the interoperability of command and control systems and share the high investments needed. The coordinated development of a European military cloud can also make an important contribution to digital sovereignty in Europe through spillover effects from the military into the civil sector.
