        WW1 was one of the most dishonorable piece of war that happened in history. Shitting yourself in a trench, waiting all day to be one of the 60% to die from indiscriminate artillery. Use of gas. Charging at the huns to be met by a single MG that mow down your battalion.

          >The only vaguely honorable thing was the lack of widespread pillaging, civilian mass murder and rape.
          hy do you think France was so angry against Germany for the Versailles treaty, and create the maginot line?

          I invite you to read this if you think that there was no pillaging, mass murder, rape, during WW1 :

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_occupation_of_north-east_France_during_World_War_I

          Just in Lille, Germany enslaved the population, and did forced labor, seize the food, mortality rate went up from 20% before war to 55%, birth rate went from 4885 in 1913 to 609 in 1918.

          EVERY town in occupied France were imposed monetary contributions, industry emptied of their equipment, send in Germany.

          and anything and everything was requisitionned from local population : :

          >As soon as the Germans arrived, all cars had to be handed over to the occupiers. Various products and objects of daily life were requisitioned, such as bicycles, household items including copper, tin and alloys (essentially all metal objects), rubber (including bicycle tires), skins, oils, leather, wire, and finally the wool of mattresses and pillows, including those of the hospitals. This last confiscation particularly traumatized a starving population, already deprived of heating, including many patients thus deprived of bedding, with the use of straw as a replacement being itself prohibited. These requisitions were accompanied by incessant excavations.[32] Many works of art in public space made of bronze were likewise unbolted and melted down.

          And when German Army finally retreat, thing get even worse, they dumped gas shell in every water well they encounter, cut every fruit tree, destroyd entiere town, put frick huge time bomb under school, church, city hall, thinking that allies HQ would use those, some bomb even explode years after the end of the war...

          So yeah, France in 1919 didn't ask frick huge compensation to Germany for nothing.

      The actual weapons of older wars were less lethal. You were less likely to die of an arrow the way you would a drone grenade, it's just that statistically speaking you'd be far less likely to get treatment for it and succumb to infection.

        If 10% of arrow wounds were instantly lethal by their nature and 80% were lethal if not treated, but 100% of those shot by arrows received no medical care, are you seriously arguing that only 10% of arrow wounds are lethal? If no one received effective care, then effectively they are lethal.

          No, they are not. Lethal in this context means gonna kill you right now and nothing you can do about it.
          Arrows were not like that. A man in harness being shot at with arrows had a fundamentally different morale experience than with bullets. There was not a high-probability risk of death.

            ...Yes they are. If 100% of people die 3 weeks from now due to an arrow received today, it has the same lethality of a similar wound that kills 100% of the time immediately. Lethal in your context is simply not relevant, you've created this category that changes nothing other than the time it takes to die and the claim that people were not afraid of arrow volleys compared to machinegun fire is not one that is supported by contemporary accounts.

          Although I don't know their criteria. We see a ton of destruction of equipment that comes from cleaning up abandoned or damaged vehicles, which were probably accomplished through mines, arty, etc. None of that arty would never have been employed anywhere near as effectively without drone scouting though.

    War went wrong with its proof-of-concept industrialization around the time of World War One and the "Old Ways" were rendered technologically obsolete in their entirety in 1945.

    This was due to a decline in the de facto rule of the warrior caste, the aristocracy of generals and emperors. and the prior ruling priestly caste. We have been, for some time, living in the rule of the merchant caste and sliding downwards. It is obviously in the interest of the merchant caste to commercialize war, because their highest virtue is money.

    It has become almost inconceivable to the modern mind that people used to wage war over things like honor or the genuine interests of one's people, or at least the interests of a rightful king. Nonetheless, Tradition is not so easily beaten, and martial virtue among soldiers has largely persisted in the face of all attempts to sequester it by the present ruling class. This can be seen largely in both the physiognomy of tier-one special operations, and in the symbols informally adopted by members of the warfighting class.

    Technology must always be subject to politics, which must be subject to the martial class, which must be subject to a priestly or academic class.

          Correct, but that's not a formal, governmental hierarchy. Modi? is not a general and he is not seeking spiritual assent from Brahmins.

          Nonetheless, an example of the hierarchy actually triumphing in modernity is the Taliban. The Taliban are an example of a society that prioritized their clerical and martial classes, subjugated capital and technology to their cause and won. Whether or not they're a civilizational backwater is another thing.

          Why did the US fail? Everyone will say the same thing. Politics. Who are the political class? Some say the military-industrial complex, some say bankers, lobbyists, etc. Ultimately, business.
          Business lacked the will, skin-in-the-game, etc to actually win Afghanistan. Winning is less economically viable than a forever war. When policy is dictated by businessmen, war becomes but a matter of balance sheets.
          People cynically like to think this was either always the case, or that now that we have "muh democracy" that we're far more enlightened than the people who fought holy wars - but I certainly wouldn't say so. I don't think many Knights were unsure of their place in life, I think many Iraq War vets are.

          But I guess they didn't have therapy xd

              Close but too collectivist, obviously missing the true transcendent element. I'm not pretending that this is somehow a historical catch-all. My initial point, which everyone sought to contradict, is that with the decline of a transcendental authority - war becomes void of higher purpose, which should be common sense.

              >Muh wars were always about muh honour and we're never influenced by logistics or geopolitics

              Not much more than skirmishes happened all the way from Sekigahara to the 1860s

              If airpower didn’t mean much then the Mujahideen getting entire shipments of Stingers to combat Soviet gunship helis, and much more importantly for the glownigs that supplied them to get as much as possible back in the 90’s, wouldn’t have been such a big deal.
              [...]
              All the samurai did after the sengoku jidai was harrass random rice farmers and other peasants and isolate Japan from the world at large. Which may not sound bad until Perry starts sailing up to your shit and you realize you are hopelessly outclassed in modern warfare because you decided to be a bunch of grugs for centuries. Thats the entire problem with muh warrior caste larp, they just drag the rest of the country down whether you’re a janissary, samurai, mamluk, praetorian, etc. In that case the Japanese got off extremely easy since America just wanted to trade and by then was more interested in its western frontier for the whole nation building thing for the most part, when the Russian Empire was practically right there and the Brits would have pulled the whole opium wars thing across the waters not long after anyways that could easily swipe up Japan should they have wanted.

              >The Samurai aristocracy maintained 300 years of unbroken peace.
              The samurai plutocracy kept everyone down by force, and the shogunate's inept politicking lead to the country making some of the most terribly one-sided trade deals imaginable until the Meiji restoration straightened it out. The shogunate were the true cargo cult, handing over mounds of silver for useless junk.
              >government by assassination
              Yeah wow good thing they didn't have a secret police force who went around murdering anybody who tried to advocate for anything slightly better eh?
              Japan was in the path to be a modern democratic nation until the same regressive mindset and elitism of the shogunate reared its ugly head and placed the country yet again under a military dictatorship and all the bloodshed it entailed.
              Funny how 1868 and 1945 both marked the overthrow of the warrior caste and also marked the start of the greatest periods of improvements in Japanese society

              Yeah yeah the shogunate was oppressive and reclusive, no shit. That's what it took to have stability in that era. The Meiji era wasn't less oppressive, it was just worse in new and fun ways (to die for your industrial overlords). The reversal of reclusiveness had the effect the edo period was rightfully structured in fear of, a breakdown into strife and adventurism. The wonderful positive effect of the Meiji period was a nonstop collapse bailed out by a foreign military power taking effective vassalage of the country.

              'By and large the literature of a democracy will never exhibit the order, regularity, skill, and art characteristic of aristocratic literature; formal qualities will be neglected or actually despised. The style will often be strange, incorrect, overburdened, and loose, and almost always strong and bold. Writers will be more anxious to work quickly than to perfect details. Short works will be commoner than long books, wit than erudition, imagination than depth. There will be a rude and untutored vigor of thought with great variety and singular fecundity. Authors will strive to astonish more than to please, and to stir passions rather than to charm taste'.

          Then who is it subject to? The merchant? The commoner? Like it or not, someone has to direct policy. I don't mean a junta.

          Ideally? The people as a whole. But I'll take the "merchant class" or "commoners" over the warriorlets every day, too. Merchants build empires. Warriors build nothing, they only produce stagnation and death. They are but tools - and tools with a strictly limited use case at that - to be wielded by those more competent to helm the ship of state, and ought to be kept within their lane at all times.

In their selection processes, they value people who have these values and traits over those who have technically had more training. These units comprised of the most lethal people in the world value principles over training and technology, which are always treated as secondary. That should tell you something.

            This is just an example of the elite, but this is/was present to a significant degree in the regular military. There are fundamental virtues instilled that precede all training and inform said training.

      You now realize that while larpers were drooling over 500$ manually piloted analog FPVs Teledyne FLIR was optimizing their private target library to run detection at sub 5 milliseconds for the Rogue 1 OPF-L.

      I remember when the Nagorno Karabakh war was going in 2020. That should have been a wakeup call that not only are remote airstrikes absolutely the new meta, but they were also cheap enough for turdies to use them. So many anons on here kept telling me that I didn't know what was really happening, that all of the gains the Azeris made were by boots on the ground and the Bayraktar videos were isolated propaganda. Surely robots can't replace human soldiers. Except they largely did with the COIN ops in the sandbox occupations way back in the early 2000s. This has been a long time coming and with easy access to 3d printers and github object tracking software it's becoming widespread among even non-state actors. Just remember when you're building your Boston Dynamics knockoff that cycloidal drives are out, the new hotness is figure-8 capstans and EC-planetarys. Also make sure you run your fisheye through beam splitters so you can record through multiple color channels in B/W and keep the images synced and simulate Kodak EIR in real time and spot camo easy. It's trippy as frick like that drug scene from Beasts of No Nation.

      It was the wakeup for normies. Ordinary soldiers got the wakeup with ISIS quadcopter drops and the dedicated future-prep analysts in the military were screaming about it in the mid 00s.

      If airpower didn’t mean much then the Mujahideen getting entire shipments of Stingers to combat Soviet gunship helis, and much more importantly for the glownigs that supplied them to get as much as possible back in the 90’s, wouldn’t have been such a big deal.

      The Samurai aristocracy maintained 300 years of unbroken peace.
      The Meiji cargo cult was a short, bloody confusion marked by colonial misadventure, internal misalignment, and government by assassination of one's opponents. It was entirely fueled by a misunderstanding of what made the West successful and it had to be fixed by Western interpolation.

      All the samurai did after the sengoku jidai was harrass random rice farmers and other peasants and isolate Japan from the world at large. Which may not sound bad until Perry starts sailing up to your shit and you realize you are hopelessly outclassed in modern warfare because you decided to be a bunch of grugs for centuries. Thats the entire problem with muh warrior caste larp, they just drag the rest of the country down whether you’re a janissary, samurai, mamluk, praetorian, etc. In that case the Japanese got off extremely easy since America just wanted to trade and by then was more interested in its western frontier for the whole nation building thing for the most part, when the Russian Empire was practically right there and the Brits would have pulled the whole opium wars thing across the waters not long after anyways that could easily swipe up Japan should they have wanted.

      Based noticer. I remember thinking in 2020 that the Azeri gains despite the very difficult terrain were a big paradigm shift.
      Btw I expect Aliyev to start a conventional war with Armenia later this decade if he thinks the West and Russia are too distracted or committed to other conflicts to intervene. I also expect the Azeris will win and extinguish Armenian independence. They may even finish what the Turks started a century ago.

      You should stop being a wannabe warriorlet and obsessing about being the sore loser of modern history. Get a job.

    >acknowledging the existence of something means you HAVE to be it yourself
    I keep forgetting commies do this trickery. I guess they themselves can't imagine anything beyond themselves due to their absolutely selfish nature.

    When the nerds gave the drones to regular violent people.

    The nerds put a camera and made it cool to play with it. It's the regular violent people that strapped explosives to them.

    The more I see of modern warfare and read of history, the more I realize that feudal/middle ages warfare was both the most kino and, in many ways, the least barbaric. I firmly believe that if your own elites are not on the frontlines, it is not a war worth fighting in.

      Seems reasonable. If the people who started the war aren't willing to put their lives on the line then why should anyone else?

    I must admit
    10 years ago even thought I would have still bet that small-drones with explosive would change warfare by overwhelming anti-air and making plenty of fragile infrastructure explode.
    I wouldn't have believed they would be so efficient against both infantry and tank with a bonus psychological warfare.

    I hate these homosexual things. We need more microwaves, more lasers, more electronic warfare, more autocannons with airburst ammunition, more APS, and more blowing up the factories making this shit.

    Is this one of those threads where morons with broken "U" keys pretend the homosexual in the mud trench would look at the fpv drone with disgust and not immediately ask where he could get some?

    War has been trending away from individual combat prowess and heroism towards industrial output and technological innovation for at least the last 400 years. The curve is exponential. Draw your own conclusions. Many countries will cease to exist.

      No chink but the irony will come when the tech-side discovers the Chinese made cheaper drones in quantity so huge they blot out the sky, while they barely have a few of their wonderwaffe drone.

      Again, no chink, we know that when the chink deploy their drone it will somehow manage to kill the drone operator by accident.

        Consider as well how many FPVs and other drones are cheap chink shit already. You don't get Aliexpress or whatever when you're at war with china.
        I hope the West will be able to get good production of our own shit.

          The PLA is intentionally sabotaged to prevent ot from being a coup threat to Xi. China has the same corruption problems as Russia, they just hide it by saving face.

          We just had the recent revelation that Chinese ballistic missiles were mostly fueled with water.

            I'm afraid China's governance is clearly less dysfunctional than Russian or, dare I say, no more than the US.
            It is corrupt to the core (enjoy your bridge filled with styrofoam under the cement) but when they do catch the culprits they torture then execute them, they don't fire them with a generous golden parachute or move them to a higher-paying position.
            That cult-like reaction bite them in the ass when it comes to solving problem that don't have obvious solutions.
            Thing is:
            China definitely have engineers making big decision on infrastructure. Not profit/fame-motivated plutocrat who would destroy the country because their electors are, in fact, morons.

            >We just had the recent revelation that Chinese ballistic missiles were mostly fueled with water.
            Well, Oxygen hydrogen is a legit fuel.
            But yes I know you are referring to this:
