In the near future, the US military expects a "modernization shake-up." According to the portal businessinsider.com, Army Chief of Staff Mark Milli and US Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced a major rearmament program for the troops.

Modernization shake-up will be the largest reorganization of army institutions in the last 40 years, when after the war in Vietnam such units as TRADOC and Army Material Command were created. And if now we do not modernize the army, we will lose to potential opponents
- said the head of the army Mark Milli.



The Pentagon has announced a program of rearmament


In the military, indicate that the limit of modernization for many species weapons and the equipment available in service with the American army has now been achieved. Therefore, a special group was organized which, during the 120 days, will conduct an armaments audit and present its proposals regarding army reforms.

The most criticized by James Mattis was the procurement system. With the help of the new commission, the US Department of Defense hopes to solve the problems of bureaucracy and quickly buy new “deadly weapons” for the soldiers. The commission will also have to find a solution to replace intra-army communications and develop solutions for cyber and electronic wars. In addition, the minister mentioned the problem of rearming the army with small arms. The military department calls the M4A1 rifle "our fathers' weapon", indicating the need for its more modern replacement, reports "Warspot".

        We’ll wait and see how they will solve a whole range of problems, we need not only an audit, but also an appropriate program. And they know how to throw money away. Yes, and Trump promised his job, get it.

        That is exactly what I would like to say. Judging by the latest trends in creating a super-duper wunderwafer, nothing of this Modernization Shake [b] [/ b] [i] [/ i] will work. Only money down the drain (into the pockets of interested parties). But buying weapons for candy wrappers is a good business.

    The military department indicates that the limit of modernization for many types of weapons and equipment available in the arsenal of the American army has now been reached.

    The limit is reached. What's next? All?
    Against the background of the foregoing, the unlimited possibility of Russian weapons pleases ...

    They planned it right. In time you will not replace the weapon - you will lose.

        There are concepts of "upgrade". This is when the same platform
        pull up and pull up on weapons, armor, instruments.
        The Americans called "block 1", "block 2". For example F-16 blocks ....
        The Russians put a new number. For example: Su-27, Su-30.

        And there is the concept of "replacement". The old is disposed of (or put on conservation).
        And replaced by a completely new platform.

    The Pentagon is in awe - again, someone will drop money from the machine. And as for the rearmament, they are unlikely to be able to carry it out so quickly - it’s not just for you to print the pieces of paper, but you also need to have the appropriate weapons, and implement the development ..... as always, ala Hollywood .....

    It looks like an infusion of money from the US military-industrial complex. Everything would be fine, but the remaining weapons after decommissioning will usually go to escalate the situation in the world, it will not be in stock.
