10 Technologies for Future Wars

Not Haldeman’s Forever War (which you should read) or Randle/Cornett’s Seeds of War (which you might also like to read) nor even Robert Frezza’s A Small Colonial War, which is a damn military science fiction masterpiece and ought to be read by anyone whose studied Rhodesian or Israeli counter-insurgency…no, this is technology necessary for future war as defined by National Defense Magazine. They include:

1. Faster, Safer, Quieter Helicopters

2. Weapons that don’t kill

3. Inventions that Lighten the Soldier’s Load

4. Ultra-light Super Survival Dune-buggies

5. Unmanned Mini-Submarines

6. High-Speed, Bulletproof Power Boats

7. Anytime, Anywhere Communications

8. Robots That Think for Themselves

9. Cheap Liquid Fuel

10. Persistent Wide Area Surveillance

Read the entirety of the article over on National Defense Magazine. It’s pretty kewl.

    Forever War is really good. Haven’t read the other two but I will be looking into them.
