Next-generation army vehicles
Even if this rings true, ground forces will always be needed for various reasons. In a world where the most powerful men can create devastation by the push of a button, ground troops will inevitably be needed to clean up the mess and fight whatever little resistance is left. The human element will always be a part of war, and no modern human is going to walk when he can ride.
But driving around isn’t the only necessity when it comes to modern warfare. Back in the day, the troops had merely to worry about flying bullets, mortars and a crashing plane here and there. Simply add some bullet-proofing and you’re good to go.
Modern warfare unfortunately includes all sorts of nasty tech. Engineers have to compensate for this, as they’ve always had to do. During WWII, the Germans introduced U-boat submarines, so the Allies invented depth charges. Ditto with sonar, and subsequent sonar cloaking devices. It’s a never-ending cycle of development.
With that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the next generation of military vehicle that hopefully won’t ever be deployed.
