Infantry are the least powerful kind of combat unit right?

Armoured obviously have more fire power and defence

Intelligence can do smarter things

Artillery have way more powerful fire power

Nuclear forces - obviously the most important

Drones - more mobile and more fire power

Aircraft - obviously moggs just about everything

Ships - well they have their niche

The only thing Infantry are good for, is them being cheap. nobody NEEDS them to take and hold land anymore

Special forced/s - well I guess they're good at super cops - hostage rescue and such, calling airstrikes

    >Infantry are the least powerful kind of combat unit right?
    but also very important

    >Armoured obviously have more fire power and defence
    armour leads the breakthrough and maneuver
    infantry follows up to consolidate their gains
    to prevent the enemy from counter-attacking through the narrow shaft of the spear
    infantry also shape the battlefield, local advances by infantry along the front makes it harder for the enemy to tell where the armor will be committed, any of the attacks could be feints, or a very successful feint can lead to a true attack to capitalize on it

    >Artillery have way more powerful fire power
    what do you think the artillery is doing?
    the fire is to support either armored or infantry units by fixing enemy units and blinding prepared defenses so the infantry or armour can maneuver around them

    >Aircraft - obviously moggs just about everything
    see above: its a supporting arm for a maneuver force, not an arm in itself

    >The only thing Infantry are good for, is them being cheap. nobody NEEDS them to take and hold land anymore
    cheap and numerous and can be deployed quickly and with a very lean tail
    so this makes them the literal best unit to deploy as a form of area denial, the enemy will need to commit forces to any thrust

    and holding ground is important, no point in rushing forward in a headlong advance if the enemy just closes up around the attack and isolates your forces

      Not anymore with proliferation of ATGM/drones.

        take more than 5 seconds to see how armies are arranged
        mech units equipped with tanks and IFVs are the primary maneuver unit

    Drones I'd say are still inherently weaker than infantry: they're stupider, have less situational awareness, and lighter-armed when you're comparing them to infantry in the same weight class.

      Drones are way weaker. Do you honestly think this fricking thing would survive a good whack by someone who isn't a malnourished mongloid mutant held together by the cum of his fellow mobniks, let alone a bullet?

      On top of this, drones have much worse endurance, even the type that are capable of VTOL.

    The correct answer is 'yes, but they are cheapest and most numerous.'

    Infantry are fleshy, talking bags of meat and water wrapped around a skeleton with bundles of nerves running through it. They're highly vulnerable to being perforated or exploded by all kinds of modern weapons. But war is still ultimately a struggle over politics by other means waged by those fleshy, talking bags of meat (and the states, societies organized by them). So ultimately, at the end of the day, you need them there to take the ground because that's what it is really about.

    All things must be able to share information and a common battle map, then cooperate to find, fox, flank, and destroy OPFOR. There should also be airmen who can speak pilot embedded.

    Special forces are used to organize foreign moronic meatbags to fight for you. That's the whole point of COIN.

    What a dumbass. Let's see your armor clear a building or an intricate trench system or a cave or a dense forest. If you want to actually want the town or city your attacking to still be standing when you gain control of it, you can't just bomb it to rubble. Even if you do, there will still be some guys with rifles hiding in the ruins. You have to be an adult to post here.

      Well to be fair nerve gas would clear them out, if we were allowed to not be pussies.

        It's not over if you put some nerve gas in the tunnel. Someone still has to go in there and take a look.

    Infantry is the most important unit and it performs a function no other type of unit can.
    Infantry can control territory and it functions in an urban environment.
    Taking and maintain control of land is all war is about. The humble gatesman is making an incredibly important and yet thankless contribution to the war effort.

    >Nuclear forces - obviously the most important
    No, they're literally worthless, because you're not using them. As long as the other side believes you have them, that's all that counts.

    infantry has one advantage that no other weapon/machine have.

    Infantry can enter and occupy buildings/tunnels.
