"The US could block plans by the British government to privatise the Ministry of Defence's equipment repair and maintenance arm because of fears over the security of shared military technology, according to secret MoD papers seen by the Observer.

The documents also state that the British army is "understandably nervous" about the sale to a private company of the Defence Support Group (DSG), a team of 2,800 top-grade engineers who service military equipment including aircraft, armoured vehicles and tanks both at home and in theatres such as Afghanistan."
