"The nation that will insist upon drawing a broad line of demarcation between the fighting man and the thinking man is liable to find its fighting done by fools and its thinking by cowards."
Sir William Francis Butler
The system listed in the article tends to a be a DARPA pie-in-the-sky thing, but you can be sure that several Army Acquisition organizations are digging into an interim solution for next year, with longer-term plans. Obviously I won'y spilling the beans on who or what typoes of technology.And all of this is a GOOD THING. Alas, we should have started doing after the Battle of Mogadishu (Oct 93), after Kosovo, after the Battle of Karbala Gap (2003, dozens of AH-64Ds shot up). But as with many of our changes these days, it has taken a full-on shooting match to gain the momentum (and funding) to do it.
