Story here.  As usual, I don’t believe we will ever see this, thought I do ultimately think this is the wave of the future.  I also think robotic vehicles, UAVs and soldiers will make war more likely, not less likely.

Looks like the US Army is getting its tanks upgraded a bit quicker.  I, for one, am happy to see that the U.S. armed forces are not ignoring conventional war-fighting.  Given our experiences with non-traditional combat (terrorism and insurgency) it would be easy to lose focus on conventional warfare.  I am glad we are not.

I’ve seen the footage that is referred to in this story.  I suspect many WWII history buffs will recognize it.  Amazing to know the history behind it.  I look forward to the book.
