These are two videos about future army.

I also wanted to post some nice video with two armies with swords, but I didn't find any funny.

With This New Rifle, Anyone Can Hit a Moving Target at 500 Yards:

"This week at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, firearms-manufacturer
TrackingPoint announced an AR-15 version of its computer-controlled precision rifles.
The company claims that the new weapon can hit moving targets “out to five
football fields away.” And anyone can use it.

Described by the company as a “precision-guided firearm,” the 500-Series rifle could
revolutionize how armies all over the world prepare for war. The technology
promises a world where expert riflemen can be trained with very little effort
—blurring the distinction between infantry and sharpshooters."

Bird Dogs & Drones, Terminators & Swarms: The Race Towards Robotic Warfare:

"More robots, fewer people. That’s where the US military is headed in the future.
But what kind of robots?

Army Gen. Robert Cone, four-star commander of the powerful Training and Doctrine
Command (aka TRADOC), said that the service is studying how robots could help
replace 25 percent of the soldiers in each of its 4,000-strong combat brigades.
That’s because the current budget crunch is pushing the military to replace
expensive human beings – and the expensive hardware required to keep them alive
— with cheaper and expendable robots. The Army is under particular pressure
because it has the most people, spending almost half its budget on pay and
benefits, and those people take the heaviest casualties."

If we don't control our own world population, Mother Nature will. Usually with some sweeping epidemic or disaster.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

21st Century War, How It Will Be Different And Why:

"It's not often that warfare suddenly goes through radical, unexpected and little
understood changes. But as new technologies and ideas kept appearing faster and
faster in the last century, change came more rapidly to warmaking as well. The last
major transformation in warfare occurred during the 1930s. These changes were all
played out during World War II. We've spent the rest of the 20th century trying to
digest all those changes. But as we enter the 21st century, another critical mass of
ideas and technologies are coming together to trigger another radical
transformation in how wars are fought."

Advanced digital optics will be the norm on individual weapons in the future.

Another advance or looking back to the past for inspiration will be caseless munitions to save weight such as the current LSAT program for the US Army.

However I don't think you'll see any major advances in firearms, the current types are pretty much the pinnacle of design capable to us.

Body armour will continue to evolve becoming even lighter, more durable and flexible.


My nerdy dream would be to see the armour and shields from Mass Effect eventually become a reality.

To be fair, I like seeing what's around the corner in future war tech. Military research is historically the largest driver of human progress, like it or not. Hopefully one day we'll have all this really cool stuff and use them responsibly. Until then, it at least makes for great sci-fi plots.

That is why I don't mind dictators. They are the only reason why any place needs "Freedom".

Nanomachines inside their bodies

Genetic control.. Information control..
Emotion control.. Battlefield control.

Everything is monitored, and kept under control.

War has changed.

The age of deterrence is now the age of control,
averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction.

And he who controls the battlefield, controls history.

War has changed.

When the battlefield is under total control,

War becomes routine.
Hum... I'm no hero. Never was, never will be...

We're already fighting then biggest world war ever, and it's no longer the Allies versus the Axis, but the Corporate Robber-Barons versus Everyone Else.
I've been saying something like that for some time now. Sadly I can't really say I know where the lines are drawn, who are the on the side of right and who are wrong or even if anyone is right... I can't see who's an ally or a foe. It's a dirty war and most people are clueless to what is happening.

Last time I checked she hasn't decided to slow down just because we're killing each other for her.

Marines test unmanned vehicle for base perimeter defense:

"Highlighting the military’s increased reliance on robotics, the Marine Corps has been exploring
the possibility of using unmanned vehicles as a more efficient way of providing security and
surveillance around bases."

See:

SOCOM’s Iron Man Suit Sees ‘Astounding’ Progress: Adm. McRaven:

"Three unpowered prototype suits are being assembled and should be delivered to SOCOM
in June, McRaven said at the National Defense Industrial Association’s Special
Operations/Low Intensity Conflict conference here. The first operating suit is due by August
2018. What will the “astounding progress” yield if all goes well? “That suit, if done correctly,
will yield revolutionary increase in survivability and lethality,” McRaven said."

Tiltrotor Drone Could Haul Supplies, Rescue the Wounded:

"Take the wing from a V-22 Osprey tiltrotor, mate it to the top of a septic tank and you’ll have
something like the Pentagon’s proposed vertical-lift cargo drone.

The Aerial Reconfigurable Embedded System—ARES, for short—could become the strap-it-on
aircraft of choice for delivering cargo and lifting out wounded troops."

Ain't going to participate in any wars, but if America can give me a mecha to pilot, they just need named a country and I'll bombs away~ Totally seriously about this. I love learning about wars, especially if on the scale of world war 2 but modern time wars is just boring. Hopefully mecha will be introduced to revolutionized how we fight war like gunpowder did.

Anyway, I believe that more and more, electronic warfare may come into play. Reminds me of Chaos Theory.
