The Tank is not Obsolete and Other Observations about the Future of Combat

The Tank is not Obsolete and Other Observations about the Future of Combat

 

“The available data from Ukraine, as well as the recent war in Nagorno-Karabakh, indicate that tanks are still critical in modern warfare and their vulnerabilities have been exaggerated. Russia’s heavy tank losses can be explained by employment mistakes, poor planning and preparation, insufficient infantry support, and Ukrainian artillery. The use of Javelins and other light anti-tank systems in Ukraine has not demonstrated that the tank is obsolete any more than the Sagger anti-tank guided missile did in the 1973 Yom Kippur War, as discussed by David Johnson in these pages.”

USS Samuel B Roberts: World’s Deepest Shipwreck Discovered

 

The USS Samuel B Roberts (DE-413) went down during the Battle Off Samar in the Philippine Sea in October 1944.

It lies in 6,895m (22,621 ft) of water.

That’s Four Miles under the Pacific!

U.S. Army Get’s New Rifles as it Circles Down the WOKE Drain

Behold, I Make All things New!

 

I guess giving new rifles to the troops is a consolation prize for all the Diversity and Tranny training they will have to attend.

No Seriously, the upgrade in caliber is a PLUS.

Never been a fan of 5.56 for many reasons.

Now in the words of Crazy Earl from Full Metal Jacket:

 

“All We Need now is an enemy worth shooting!”
