    Artist Turns an Ancient Japanese Battle Painting Into an Energetic Animation

    This is pretty amazing, especially when you look at some of the close ups, where details like farmers mustering for the battle can be seen: https://mymodernmet.com/animated-battle-of-sekigahara-yusuke-shigeta/

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    It really depends on the sort of doctrine that is being used. Modern weapons bring what used to be Battalion and Company support weapons capabilties down to the Company and Platoon (think of things like the Javelin or Spike ATGM and Starstreak MANPAD). Many different types of weapons and...

    What would happened if?

    If Hitler hadn't existed, WWII as we know it may not have happened, but all kinds of other strange outcomes were possible. WWI really overturned much of the social and cultural foundations of Europe, and new "alternative" strructures were struggling to take root. Fascism was wildly popular...

    Cognitive Warfare - Diplomacy or ?

    This isn't cognitive warfare against China, it is Chinese cognitive warfare. Consider: So the US makes nothing of this, but it becomes an event played up by the Chinese press. Who are the target audiences? Certainly painting the USN as being unprofessional helps the Chinese, and is possibly...

    Royal Marines experiment with jet suit

    While one can ask what happens if this is an opposed landing, this is a very interesting video and concept: Imagining a jet suit equipped man and UAV's leading a landing (or on land assaulting a tall building) brings all kinds of possibilities to mind

    Opener Blackfly aircraft

    A new electric aircraft is being developed and (apparently) soon to be marketed. While the current version can be considered a fairly expensive toy, the idea of an all electric VTOL without complex mving wings or rotors is very interesting, and it should be possible to scale this idea. These...

    Domestic and Arctic Mobility Enhancement Project

    Reviving an old thread, based on an interesting article from Strategypage: https://strategypage.com/htmw/htseamo/articles/20201225.aspx While a nuclear powered, semi icebreaker LASH (Lighters Aboard Ship) might be a bit much, given the extreme conditions that it is ment to operate under, the...

    Mosaic Warfare - US Doctrine

    I suspect the idea of "just-enough overmatch to succeed" does not mean no contingency reserves, but rather you only take out enough "Lego blocks" from the bin to do the job. If you under estimate, you (hastily) grab another handful of pieces, while if you overestimate, you (grudgingly) return...

    Grand Strategy for a Divided America

    Secretary Mike Pompeo outlines a new American strategy focusing on fragility. This is a very "bottom up" and 4GW sort of thinking about defence and security issues: https://strategypage.com/on_point/20201222205918.aspx

    Will the Army change the size of the infantry squad?

    Also doctrine. A WWII American squad had a scout team, and assault team and a fire support team. W WWII era German squad was essentially built around an MG-42 team. If future squads have robotics or other exotica, then they will have to be adjusted and built around that as well.
