    That is great news, but as @hoamskilet said it raises the ominous question of what else is ready to go. And what Russia and China have that is ready to go.

    The last Red Flag event allied air forces were simulating China's/Russia's GPS/radar jamming capabilities. Read about it beforehand, will have to see if I can find anything now

    Electronic warfare is a big deal, but probably pales in comparison to cyber security/information assurance. Chances are very good, the outbreak of a major conflict would start by us or them hacking into a countries infrastructure to cripple banking, power grids, etc...

    Totally agree. And on the infrastructure front, we're VERY vulnerable right now.

    Not as advanced as e-warfare missiles but you know how in video games, you have a HUD? Showing vitals, clip count, bullets remaining in clip, radar, etc.

    Tablets are small enough and powerful enough, combined with air reconnaissance, why don't our soldiers use a HUD? In theory we could highlight friendlies, baddies, show quick glance of inventory, bullet count, etc.

    Augmented reality of sorts. Mark targets, whole squad becomes aware, track the objective, etc.

    Tablets do not weigh much or cost much in comparison, which could provide the compute power. A smart clip utilizing a count sensor would need calibrated, but couldn't see much weight there. Voice recognition technology is to the point where interaction could make the add on hands free, as well as easily fit into training.

    In most recent combat footage I've seen, it looks like we still rely on comms and lasers to get shit done, which seems very outdated considering the tech we have available.

    Cost for one but most importantly durability. Shit you won't think can break will be broken in the infantry. It's a brutal environment for equipment in general so the stuff you are talking about would have to be unbelievably durable. SOF get that type of equipment first because their operational tempo is at a much different pace and they can actually use that type of gear. A magazine round counter is just useless though. Dont need it, and it is just another piece that can and will break.

    I could see a TL or squad leader having something like that so he could see the status of their men, but other than that there is no feasibility at this time.

    Slap as many gadgets as you want on infantry man, it still won't diminish their basic function of aim and fire. So I agree with what you're saying. It would only be useful for CO's and operations.

    The additional problem is getting reliable comms to the end-user. Ruggedized tablets are a viable option, but how do you ensure comms are not compromised in the event these devices fall into enemy hands? Encryption and multi-factor authentication are easy in theory, but present problems to warfighters in the field. "No comms, no bombs" is absolutely true. Recent discussions regarding commercial companies purchasing transponder bandwidth for what are/were traditional military bands/frequencies will be a real problem.

    Gun powder and fireworks a thousand years ago. In modern history, no. They can reverse engineer and copy shit but that’s about it. Innovation is difficult in socialist/communist society.

    As someone who has gotten briefings and knows SOME of the capabilities of our near peer adversaries, it’s not something I’d laugh about. They can absolutely deny area to us, something that was never an issue before. Etc etc etc.

    We still use the large radios and lasers because it works and it’s rugged. The military is also painfully slow to adopt new tech for the average infantryman because as was pointed out cost, weight and how easy it will get broken or lost are huge factors. You would think by now we could ditch our huge, heavy radios for smart phones but we can’t just yet. Having encrypted comms is vital and there isn’t a global cell network that is secure.

    I was running around with a prototype smart phone developed for the military in 2013 in Afghanistan though. I could send messages and upload pictures and info to the secure net when on the FOB. Outside the fob it was a mini blue force tracker with GPS and pre-loaded maps. I imagine 6 years later we have advanced quite a bit. There is a way to access the internet on secure channels in the worst places in the world but that tech is reserved for highly specialized and high speed units like SOF. If we can put what you are taking about on my eye pro then it might work ok. But fully encapsulated helmets like Halo are not good. Hard as **** to breath in. But here is something super ****ing cool for the SOF divers out there

    Our military rifles have magazines.

    So why do we advertise what we have and how we are going to use?

    Scare tactics?

    No more days of element of surprise?
