    Army continuing to meme its way to relevance in the Pacific, the way I see it. They can just put these all over whatever islands they want to support A2AD. Though they would infuriate banan man too, I'm sure.

      Yeah I feel these are great when the roads, terrain and enemy environment are known, otherwise they are at almost more risk.

        Obviously the system will evolve but right now the biggest advantage would be crew protection. It’s not like your Himars should be near the front line or in an area that could be effected by Ewar, but they’re always going to have some vulnerability to counterbattery fire, cheeky drones and air launched missiles. If all it amounts to is keeping crew alive it’ll be worth it. I’m not sure it’ll amount to more in the near term

        Like I said, it's a bit of a meme. But the overlapping capability doesn't hurt, anyway.

    The U.S. is basically out of the war business. Unless it’s something crazy like Hawaii being invaded don’t expect the U.S. to go to war again. Light bombing of browns is the maximum now and soon not even that will happen. The military will continue into a long declining budgetary slope carried only by bureaucratic inertia and jobs. China could literally invade Taiwan tomorrow and the U.S. won’t for a single shot in anger.

      Dude. The US spends more on their military than the entire world combined. They have the 1st, 2nd and 3rd largest Air Force and Navies. You're on crack.

        Nope, China spends almost as much as the US or even slightly more (unofficially).

        China's public defense budget is only about 1/3rd or less of their actual estimated defense spending, meaning China has the largest military budget or is VERY close to 2nd place just barely behind the US.

          Yeah, but you're also forgetting the double secret American defense budget, which is actually 100x larger than the publicly stated one, meaning China still has no hope of ever reaching military parity.

            sadly american economics professors are too smart for that and would start b***hing about the US "losing" trillions of dollars per year into some blackhole of a sekrit defense budget.

            In china they can just cook the books and threaten to beat/jail/kill anyone smart enough to notice the discrepancies.

          large unofficial budgets don't create a working army, they create the soviet union and all of its problems. lack of accountability doesn't stop at the "just print more money" and "cook the books" phase.

            Sure, but we also shouldn't pretend the official Chinese defense budget is an accurate reflection of their ACTUAL defense spending.

    We’re not talking about China or the absolute size of budgets. The fact is the U.S. military is on a downward trajectory of declining budgets, refusal to invest into long-term MIC development leaving it to continually atrophy and fall away and declining recruitment numbers. It will likely continue in this downward slope running until it reaches some minimal floor in which it could conduct a foreign war even if it wanted to.

    The last decade of failures and withdrawal isn’t because a super unfortunate string of weak administrations — it’s because the military can no longer offer good policy options for problems so policy is forced to go the sift-power route. That’s the "secret’ behind all these military happenings around the world. /k/ is desperately coping right now, they have to believe the world cop is still on top of things, and all the problems right now are just weird anomalies which don’t represent trend.

      the military doesn't set the budget and we've had obstructionist fricksticks in congress for the last 20 years that have prevented any long term investment in our military.

      Anytime investments are made they get undercut within a few years with more budget fighting bullshit from republic**ts who then blame democrats for not just giving into their demands every single fricking time.

        More like US politicians didn't feel there was the need to heavily improve technologies aside from COIN related, when competition for world hegemony consists in countries filled with morons such as

        you can't take them quite seriously, consider from a military point of view US has massacred over and over again their enemies due lack of peer conflicts, by this point rules of war are more of a problem than them being any good at fighting.
        No, the failure comes from a geopolitical angle, capitalist determinism ensures eventually all the adversaries of the West turn into new western oriented nations but no one within US R&D institutions has managed to develop the metodologies to accelerate the process.
        I suspect this is more due the cultural and anthropologic rather than STEM nature of the task, and the former has a tendency to attract people of socialist tendencies.
        If we have people as skillful at social engineering as the ones we have in MIC tirades such as

        won't happen.
