‘It Failed Miserably’: After Wargaming Loss, Joint Chiefs Are Overhauling How the US Military Will Fight

A brutal loss in a wargaming exercise last October convinced the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. John Hyten to scrap joint warfighting concepts that had guided U.S. military operations for decades. “Without overstating the issue, it failed miserably.

Analysis: Caught between China and the U.S., Asian countries stockpile powerful new missiles

SEOUL, July 20 (Reuters) – Asia is sliding into a dangerous arms race as smaller nations that once stayed on the sidelines build arsenals of advanced long-range missiles, following in the footsteps of powerhouses China and the United States, analysts say.

Huh? Is it planning to paint ‘hypersonic’ on some old supersonic ones?

In big black letters, so the Russian eyes in the sky can pick them up. That’ll scare ’em.

Oh, I’m sure they’ll get there, eventually. I remember the first Space Shuttle flights, where the heat-shielding ceramic tiles were falling off here and there, then much later reading an in depth explanation of how the Russians had designed their tiles on the Buran and why the US’ design was faulty. Although the Buran flew only once or so, it managed to survive the ordeal intact.

The US had a similar war game failure preparing for the invasion of Iraq. They just changed the rules until they got the outcome that they wanted. But, even if secure and reliable communications can be established, current electronic battlefield monitoring technology delivers an inadequate picture of complex combat situations. And, is it really desirable for people hundreds or thousands of miles away to involve themselves in directing dynamic situations like combat. We’ve seen, in Afghanistan, that a large number of remote officers can disastrously reduce support for troops in contact(TIC). My impression of Wendy Sherman is that the USG cannot find a… Read more »

I might disagree about a war with China – Their equipment is still rather shaky. Their system almost promotes selling the military crap gear. They have a lot but a lot of it doesn’t work…… However I do believe the US would lose to Russia. WW2 taught the Russians to make sure your equipment can be fixed with a Big MF Hammer. They have built in endurance. They also have hypersonic weapons and from the Dutch navy experience – really good signal jamming. The US battlefields is built around a air defense umbrella. And that is highly unlikely with either… Read more »

Rocketry and signal jamming are their forte, on a dime store budget no less. Did you know that the original breakthrough physics on stealth was by a Russian physicist? “Much of Ufimtsev’s work was quietly translated into English where a number of American scientists read it. A 1962 paper translated as ‘Method of Edge Waves in the Physical Theory of Diffraction’ was of particular interest. One group, Lockheed engineers working in the “Skunk Works” division read the paper and saw it as potentially groundbreaking. What if they could create an entire plane with the shapes and materials that sent little… Read more »

Nothing new here. The U.S. has always stolen or copied other’s inventions. Check out the time such inventions were BLOCKED at the patent office under National Security grounds and then later, the U.S. military themselves stole the work themselves.

Care to explain some examples of “crap” Chinese equipment that doesn’t work? Last I checked it’s the US with overpriced, unreliable “shaky” gear. F-35, Patriot, hell all their hypersonic tests have been failures so far while China already has multiple hypersonic systems in service.

The PLA Navy’s ship are new and being manufactured at a fast rate. They aren’t spontaneously combusting like the USS Bohemme Richard or getting their toilets easily clogged up like the USS Ford and Bush lmao

These guys cannot even win a war against a rag-tag band of muslim fanatics in Afghanistan. And they wanna take on a world power ? Give me a break. All they can domis bomb, bomb, bomb and deliver drone attacks.

This is just the military industrial complex begging for even more money.

Hi VickiTWatt

I hope your kids aren’t at home somewhere in Donetsk or Lugansk because they could be dead tomorrow, courtesy of Uncle Sam.

Gee, that sounds really interesting. Are you sure though that if I click on your com that it won’t download a keylogger that will eventually 0 out my bank account? That couldn’t be how you’re earning that fantastical paycheck, would it?

The hypersonic dream will be years away for the yanks, by then missile technology would have moved on.

What Hypersonic weapons are being talked about here ? Yesterday I read article of the latest FAILURE, testing such an ALLEGED weapon. Therefore it’s crystal clear the U.S. has no such weapon and all it’s comments in that regards are nothing but fantasy and wishfull thinking. L.O.L.

The US is still waiting on that Star Wars technology promised by Ronald Regan back in the 1980s.

They could always try to steal the design of the Peresvet. Oh I forgot, they’re always trying.

The US will loose face if they seek solutions via diplomatic actions. So, they won’t.
