Personally I think there is a lot of under estimation going on by some here. Yes we have had bad procurement in the past and I am sure that will continue into the future. But when it comes to boots on the ground our troops are pretty good so are a lot of the systems and other personnel that support them in logistics.

OB Lasers have come a long way over the last few years you see all sorts on You tube being used for different purposes from rust removal to one I saw the other day where the Chinese gov workers (council perhaps) were lopping the tops off trees with them absolutely amazing the speed accuracy and improved safety was amazing.

There wasn't much wrong with buying a French sub. Problem was Turnbullshit wanted to modify it to use a trolling motors with a car battery.

This is an interesting development. It's called "Ghost shark".

"Ghost Shark will provide Navy with a stealthy, long-range autonomous undersea warfare capability that can conduct persistent intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and strike."
