Facts and figures: => Real time figures, not paper figures.
Example : Germany has 4 Tiffy's combat ready out of the 120+ on paper. => Got it?

What Air Force has half the numbers of the USA? Nobody.
What Air Force has a third of the numbers of the USA? Nobody.
What Air Force has a quarter of the numbers of the USA? Nobody.
What Air Force has a fifth of the numbers of the USA? Nobody.

Navy? Same thing.

Drones in all Air- Land and Sea forces? => Nobody.

In AIr Land and Sea the USA is master of the game.

Next wars will be Intel and Internet wars.

For the military? It will be more "sniper" like then anything else. And yes, that sniper can be a drone.

Cruise missiles for the big bang, and hit and run drone snipers.

It's about time. AI and bots ruined online game 20 years ago and still rule it today.

The question is, what took so long? /tongue in cheek

Seriously, AI and bots in rudimentary form have existed for decades. They just get more credit now.

Reminds me of the Bolo Universe stories by Keith Laumer featuring self-aware super tanks.
