Australian Generals Develop Concept of Preparing for Future "Fast-Track War"

58

The Australian Department of Defense has published a framework for preparing troops "for the wars of the future." The Australian media reports that the concept is based on the "power supply" of operations.


The reports indicate that the Australian Defense Department is concerned about providing troops with sufficient energy resources in "wars of the future." At the same time, Australian generals believe that wars in the future will be fleeting. Hence the name of the general concept: "Preparing for an accelerated war."

From concept:

As technology develops and spreads in a modern combat space, the demand for power will grow, which means that the demand for energy will increase significantly. This will lead to a greater energy dependence of ground combat. In this regard, it is important to develop systems that would create a balance of the operational requirements of modern and advanced military equipment with energy consumption and waste (emissions) of an environmental nature.


The Australian Department of Defense is looking for innovative options to increase the level of provision of the army with sufficient amounts of energy, including looking for options for new energy technologies.

In particular, it is proposed to create devices for long-term storage of energy, which would increase the "density of energy storage by more than 10 times" while reducing the mass of the device itself. Such devices are proposed to be used in robotic complexes, new systems of lethal and non-lethal weapons.

One of the ideas is the possibility of reuse of emissions (waste) from the operation of military equipment.

Australian Department of Defense:

This will not only improve the efficiency of energy use during the operation, but also reduce the environmental burden.

Interesting logic of the Australian generals: they are concerned about ecology, but for some reason there is no talk of the fact that a war (including an "accelerated" one) can take away thousands of lives.

    Interesting logic of the Australian generals: they are concerned about the environment, and the fact that a war (including "accelerated") can take thousands of lives is out of the question for some reason.

    Interestingly, and with whom did the Australians decide to fight?

        They have already defeated the rabbits once. Out of 16 million, the virus reduced their population by 2 million))
        In fact, they are involved in almost all American and British wars, until 2014, for example, they were in Afghanistan.

      Australia has Muslim Indonesia in its neighbors.
      With a population approaching 300 million people (!).
      Moreover, with a very small area on volcanic
      islands. Sometimes the Papuans of Indonesia, without asking anyone,
      quietly migrate to the desert north of Australia.
      Well, China is also gaining muscle.

          Come on, as if it was not in history when, despite the apparent power, China was losing. And do not forget that China's GDP per capita is less than in Russia, and out of its population of 1.3 billion people, it is estimated that about 500 million people live below the poverty line do not have access to education, medicine, normal food, the number of undernourished is more than the entire population of Russia. That is, this is just a thermonuclear bomb inside China and that is why, despite all the raids from the United States, sanctions against telecommunications companies, China does not introduce any serious counter-sanctions against the United States and even China had to make concessions in Hong Kong.
          Any war for China would be a slowdown in GDP growth and could provoke huge internal unrest.

          Just right. The acquisition of the F-35 is the best contribution to defense
          Australia recently.
          It is a versatile mobile means of defense and attack.
          More useful than all air defenses, tanks and missiles.

      robotic complexes, new systems of lethal and non-lethal weapons.
      .
      The energy supply complex is called MRBM and OTRK with nuclear warheads. And the energy density is high, and the mass of the device is small, and it is stored for a rather long time, and is delivered to the "consumer", that is, the Australian Armed Forces very quickly.

    Normal logic for those who start wars, but do not plan to participate in them. A lot of people will die in wars, freeing up living space for those who did not fight. And after that they would like to breathe clean air and drink clean water.
