Read the whole thing.  Great Churchill story at the beginning, but the meat of the story is the interview after.  Read it and be in awe.

Tank upgrade

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.

The Army developing new hi-tech visual augmentation devices.  Today’s soldiers who grew up on video games will now have many of the features they are use to available on the real world battlefield.

It looks like the Poles are going to purchase the US HIMARS system for their army.  This seems to me to be a smart move.  Not only is it a capable system, but the more integrated into NATO equipment, the better off the Polish military is.

Looks like the Army is looking at a new sniper suit.  Technology changes everything.
