Military Review

This video shows the US Army what the war will be in 2050

Dreaming about the future is a task not only of science fiction, but also of public services. NASA is constantly doing this, but the US military rarely shares their vision of how the war will be fought in 2050. However, the other day, Dr. Bill Lewis, US Army Director of aviation, introduced a video that shows what awaits us in 37 years.

This video has it all - as if its creator played a fantasy on the grounds of excessive sitting out for video games. Laser guns, drones, a gun that shoots drones, a bracelet that allows you to control air strikes ...

Probably the strangest episode is associated with a physician who approaches a wounded soldier, scans his wounds, and then a levitating capsule flies up to him and takes him to the infirmary. However, the goal of the video is not so much to show a real future, as to inspire young professionals to create innovative technologies.

    If we assume this, it is closer to Strugatsky.

        It is unlikely. Rather, learn to do it even more sophisticatedly.

      This video shows the US Army what the war will be in 2050

      This video does not show war, but the planting of "democracy" in the banana republics.

      This video looks much more real.

      Sorry, but for me this is nonsense, there will be soldiers and equipment stuffed with electronics, there will be new neutron and amy bombs, you can’t stop using electronic warfare and electronic warfare, but you can flirt with electronics only with the Papuans from banana republics, and all this electronics will be burned in a war with real opponents and drowned out.

      Video is utter nonsense, a soldier with a wrist communicator manages different types of drones, here are cranks, and if such a computer gets to the enemy? So he will deploy them on his own)) The idea of ​​a mini UAV is cool, if you can still make them silent, then there will be chic, the helmet is not a bad idea, you can go there with a mini UAV. otherwise I did not see anything useful.

      Let's talk from the point of view of the special forces (I played this game). All this active electronic equipment creates the background. Indeed, even when the STELS plane is in stealth mode, it does not have active radar and so on, otherwise it will be detected. Well, now imagine, a sabotage group, begins to use all these lotions - then air and earth will cover them with a rocket.

      PS And also the cost of these things, the complexity, because in the event of a breakdown you cannot fix it yourself. Here's an example - an aircraft carrier, stuffed with ultra-modern equipment, and not on our old exercises. Our pilots managed to enter the bombing position on this aircraft carrier and took pictures. Why did the US come as a shock (how many times). And also in spite of a bunch of ships guarding the Aircraft carrier, the torpedo "Shkval" missile cannot intercept.

      Full scribe. They found someone to show - Tom Clancy, Charles Perro, only from the Pentagon. They’ll bother just about rummaging around Russia and no gadgets will help. They probably have in their blood to show the enemy’s military full of nerds. In life, for some reason, they fight only with an obviously much weak enemy. And where did the blast furnace come from at a military facility, and even such an ancient one? And what the hell was she waiting there? video for a stupid layman who judges the state of the armed forces according to Clancy's tales and the news of the SNN.)))

    Oh my god, what a fantasy? I do not consider myself a defeatist even one iota, but it is not surprising that in a country that has a 98nm processors manufacturing process, where the breakthrough is the production of 5pcs 10 year old development aircraft, armed with 50 year old rifles, where there are not enough 230 IT specialists (Putin's words), where they praise developments of 000-50 years ago, in a country whose scientific community publishes 40 percent of scientific publications in the world, where the gap in key technologies needed in the military sphere is TEN YEARS (words of Rogozin - Yesterday) - it’s not surprising that the technologies and opportunities that ALREADY EXIST now seem to be fantastic ... It’s bitter to me. It’s bitter, painful and insulting. But THESE FACTS! God grant, God GIVE, that we would be lucky that we would be at the helm for another years Putin remained at 2 — for only THIS man had finally begun to do something (since the time of the Gorbachev goat), at least in foreign policy — which clearly proves that he is WORKING FOR HIS COUNTRY and does not bend.
    And then we'll see. The president is right now, but what has become of the people is another question.
    I repeat, all the time I hope for the best, and in general an optimist, and if I press it, I’ll go and die for Russia and not with an advanced machine gun in my hands, but in general even with a Berdanka, at least with a shovel, but the facts are such a thing that EXISTS, at least believe in this, at least do not believe. Here such things, gentlemen-comrades ...

    Yes, this is the working layout of the teaser trailer for the game Battlefield 4 laughing . It seems that in the USA they realized that from the Americans the soldiers were like a bullet from poop yes ... And if you dig even deeper, then look how cool military corporations are able to spend money on the government and the budget. There is a lot of money to be spent on research alone. Nobody argues that with such a rapid growth in technology, it is foolish to think that they will fight the old fashioned way out of habit. But there is a good saying (to paraphrase) - The more complex the cabinet, the more difficult it is to repair. The cost of the same attack UAVs is high (it is far from mass production). All these electronic systems (individual) are too complex (our "Knapsack" installation comes to mind, which negates the use of these gadgets. In what year, ours tested a rocket, when the warhead was detonated, the resulting EMP would disable the nuclear power plant. Specialists hackers (although I do not like this word) cannot be written off from the accounts. And if you look closely, then all these Weapons of Future projects are only in these videos or in bulky unstable prototypes. DARPA is a swindler. The latest research, in the form of an Antiproton emitter (annihilation gun) - amused. I understand that any research is good, there are a lot of useful by-products. But in this case, this is a utopia. And all because of where to get a small-sized and very powerful energy sources? YES and a bunch more - where, how and why. And most importantly - why?

    What a lot of bullshit appeared !!! "Computer toys", "played ..." - these are the same in 1940 sang "if tomorrow is war, if tomorrow is on a campaign .." - sorry for you Stalin under the banner of Lenin then did not shoot, then Wouldn't Gorbachev and Yeltsin have waved past their noses, like you are urapatrioty. Ugh! Look around, THIS IS REALITY!

    Sorry???? Are you talking about my comment now? What reality are you talking about? Where is everything that is shown in the video - only on computer models and in single copies. Attack UAVs plow the skies of Pakistan and shoot people with impunity because Pakistan does not have adequate air defense, there are a couple of "Shells" and all the UAVs will be blown away by the wind. A railgun (which was announced as being installed on a ship, has a bunch of side effects - an EM field (the crew gets charred and the devices burn out, the possibility of plasma formation (I don't think I need to explain the consequences), an energy source, a recharge time). I can give a lot more example. And already about 1940 - that's too much you had enough. A banal example - the vaunted German technology, stupidly froze in our country. And even about Piggy and EBN - this is generally neither to the country nor to the city. Do you have a hangover?

    PS There is such a concept - Technology Limit. Now this is exactly what is happening, as the gunpowder pushed the bullet and pushes, as the turbine moved the plane and moves. Everything else is "tuning" gadgets that complicate devices and reduce reliability. They also cost a lot of money. War is won by skill. And the United States, excuse me, pissed away all the wars. Anticipating statements, like - the United States destroyed the USSR, but destroyed it, but could not reach the end, choked. As they were afraid of our "Topol" and they are afraid to blue-green diarrhea, just as our planes were the best in the world - they are. Le Bourget is an example of this. And about the Kalashnikov assault rifle - no comment.

    And what, everything is quite real.

    The leitmotif is "extended reality" - the thing is already actively promoted. In particular, Google with its glasses. They will develop a practice of application, and then the Pentagon will gracefully pick it up for themselves.

    The "strange episode" with the doctor is not a scan, but an iridology. Also an interesting thing: modern doctors consider it quackery, but once they equated acupuncture with shamanism. Can apply modern computer technology and collect statistics of changes in the pattern of the iris with this method, something will work out.

    With levitation, it is unlikely that it will come to 2050, but capsules stabilizing the condition of the victim are also being actively developed.

    I would add a bit of reciprocity, whose dudes flashed UAVs, in turn, scattered portable electronic warfare units and steam generators with moist warm steam, well, if these have such electronic things, why don't others have anything interesting? After that, electron-positron armor can be left on the roof so that the eggs do not rub in vain and the laser is replaced with lead-tungsten, and obana - dust fog MI8 and AK laughing knives stones sticks)))) 72yk is torn in ruins (Armata then without electronics - dot)

    And now I’ll disappoint the author a little. Half of these things are either designed or in development.

    An unmanned nurse board is about to go into series, there are UAVs that are fired from mortars, there are laser guns too - and in order to become truly mobile, they are waiting for new power sources that are also under development.

    In fact, American Masonic Capitalism goes by minimizing the human factor to increase automation, for global control and dominance. As soon as we manage to automate the war, with confident technological superiority, we can begin the Global Sweeping of World Space. This is reality, either it is National, or Religious (in the short term), or it is Clan / Caste / Estates.

    It's funny to read such comments. Electronics is everywhere - armored vehicles, cars, planes, helicopters, rockets, communications, navigators, etc. Late we realized, you had to preach the rejection of it at the dawn of the discovery of electricity laughing

    In this regard, I like the story of Ray Bradberry, where a group of scientists, warriors showed a film with alleged tests of an anti-gravity installation in which both the installation and the inventor died, and then asked to restore the installation. scientists created it and were very surprised when they found out that they were bred to "mogh?" and the installation in real life has never been
