A LOW-INTENSITY MARINE CORPS? || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Jul 5, 2018
Buried nearly 500 pages into the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019 , Senate Bill 2987, is an interesting directive: “No later than February 1, 2019, the Secretary of Defense shall submit to the congressional defense committees a report setting forth a re-evaluation of the highest priority missions of the Department of Defense, and of the roles of the Armed Forces in the performance of such missions.” Despite receiving passing attention in the media, this small section of a large bill has potentially enormous long-term repercussions.

THE UNKNOWN GERMAN VERTICAL TAKE-OFF AND LANDING JETS || WARTHOG 2018
Warthog Defense


Published on Jul 7, 2018
During the gloomy years of the Cold War, no other country could expect to be as badly wrecked by a nuclear war than West Germany. But for some war planners, the ultimate goal was to develop an aircraft capable of taking off and landing vertically like a helicopter. This would free the Luftwaffe from having to use conventional runways.

China Prepares To Dominate South Pacific With Week Of Electronic Warfare Drills


by Tyler Durden
Wed, 07/11/2018 - 23:25


While the Trump administration unveiling another round of tariffs on Chinese goods worth $200 billion - for which China's Commerce Ministry is planning "countermeasures," Beijing quietly began conducting military drills at five bases for electronic warfare, cybersecurity, reconnaissance and tactical strikes at five training bases, reports the South China Morning Post.





Over 50 combat units consisting of around 2,100 officers are taking part in the war games, which includes airborne troops, special forces and electronic warfare experts from the Northern, Southern, Eastern, Western and Central command theatres, according to official accounts over social media.


The war games began simultaneously at the Zhurihe Combined Tactics Training Base near Inner Mongolia, as well as four military institutes in Chongqing, Hebei and hefei provinces, as well as the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, according to the ground force.

The drill was meant to replicate combat conditions so the troops would stay in camps rather than barracks or dormitories, the ground force said via social media on Monday.​
Military inspectors from the PLA’s anti-corruption watchdog, the military’s disciplinary commission, were sent to monitor the war games, with live pictures and video footage being sent to relevant troops, it said.​
The combat units were made up almost entirely of new graduates and military officers from the surveillance troops, information security force, cyberwarriors, special fighting troops and a strike team from the army’s aviation unit, the ground force said on its WeChat account. -SCMP
China's ground force said that the five new units were organized with the goal of "transforming their tradition combat role into a "modern army to right with the navy and air force," along with the newly established strategic support unit and the rocket force.



The five theatre commands were established directly by President Xi Jinping - who replaced the army's seven military commands in February, 2016 to become chairman of the Central Military Commission. He has since shed 300,000 members of the PLA - cutting the army's size down to 2 million troops. For reference, the entire US military has around 1.3 million troops.

Xi laid out an ambitious plan in October for the PLA to modernize by 2035, on its way to becoming "one of the strongest forces by 2050," reports The Morning Post, emphasizing technology and modern warfare strategies.

“The scale of new combat forces has been expanded and becomes more important in combat effectiveness after many traditional troops and outmoded weapons were dissolved amid the military overhaul,” said a PLA commentary published on June 15.

That said, some ground force leaders fell short of Xi's new requirements, according to The PLA Daily - the public face of the Army.

“However, some commanders failed to understand and study the real role of new combat forces, with some turning the new units into superficial troops or even ‘master of none’ … and some even immersing in traditional combat drills, letting the new combat units become an isolated fighting force.”



On Friday, CNBC reported that China was quietly conducting electronic warfare tests on tech-jamming technology in the South China Sea - weeks after delivering military equipment to the disputed Spratley Islands.

The move allows Beijing to further project its power in the hotly disputed waters. The placement of electronic warfare assets, which are designed to confuse or disable communications and radar systems, comes on the heels of China's installation of anti-ship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on three outposts in the hotly contested waters of the South China Sea. -CNBC

The Spratleys lie two-thirds of the way east from Southern Vietnam to the southern Philippines - while just north like the Parcel islands, where Beijing has 10 outposts, including Woody Island - their administrative and military headquarters in the South China Sea.

[insert: 105181437-skitchSCSmap.530x298. , 105096240-Woody_1_25_18_R1C1_wm.530x298.jpg ]





China will be looking to compete with the United States' GPS system with their Beidou program - also known as Compass. The system is expected to be completed by 2020, and will significantly improve China's electronic warfare capabilities.

The Beidou system will definitely ‘add wings’ to the PLA, but only when all service troops are able to operate the new combat skills smoothly," said Hong Kong-based military expert Song Zhongping, who added "Electronic warfare – like cyberwarriors and army aviation air strike operations – are strategically important in modern combat, as many new weapons also need the support of electronic facilities."

Professor He Qisong, a defence policy specialist at Shanghai University of Political Science and Law, said the drills this week indicated that the PLA was exploring a new training model to prepare commanders and soldiers for modern warfare.​
“All the electronic warfare operations need a comprehensive and safe cybersecurity network. That’s why the strategic support force was established [in late 2015], and it has played a key supporting role in different service troops,” he said. -SCMP

“As a traditional ground force without real combat experience since the late 1970s, it really takes time for the army to break in modern warfare operations with so many newly established units.”

Army to unveil details about new Futures Command in biggest reorganization in 45 years

Washington Post
Dan Lamothe
36 mins ago


The U.S. Army will unveil details about its largest reorganization in 45 years Friday, senior service officials said, as they create a new organization in an attempt to adapt more quickly to technology and address expensive failures in weapons acquisitions.

Army Futures Command is being established in part to address concerns about the more than $32 billion the Army has spent since 1995 on programs that it canceled early with little to nothing to show for them. The new power center will be on par with other influential Army organizations, such as Training and Doctrine Command and Forces Command, and commanded by a four-star general.

The move marks the largest reorganization at Army headquarters since 1973, when the Army sought to reorient itself after the Vietnam War and created both Training and Doctrine Command and Forces Command. Their commanders have often gone on to hold even more powerful jobs, including chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and chief of staff of the Army.

Discussions about Futures Command began to take shape about two years ago, and gained steam after Defense Secretary Jim Mattis released a national defense strategy in January that labeled “near-peer” competitors Russia and China as the top threats to the United States, said Army Under Secretary Ryan D. McCarthy.

McCarthy and a senior officer, Lt. Gen. Eric J. Wesley of the Army Capabilities Integration Center, recently met with state and local officials in the five cities the Army selected as finalists: Austin, Tex.; Boston; Minneapolis; Philadelphia and Raleigh, N.C.

McCarthy said the Army wanted to be near people with expertise in science and technology, especially systems engineering and software development. It also valued locations with robust small-business growth and strong support from local officials.

“You almost need to be smashing into people in innovation,” he said. “You have to have the engagement of countless repetitions of people to help look at ideas, and you get into these wars of ideas, and you get better outcomes because it sharpens the rigor and helps garner better perspective.”

Austin and Boston are prominent tech centers previously selected as satellite homes for the Pentagon’s Silicon Valley-based Defense Innovation Unit Experimental (DIUx), which seeks to collaborate with technology experts to boost national security. Raleigh is a hub in North Carolina’s high-tech Research Triangle, while Philadelphia is home to several major universities and Minneapolis is considered one of the nation’s fastest-growing tech hubs.

Futures Command is expected to have up to 500 employees, with an undetermined mixture of active-duty soldiers and civilians. Army Secretary Mark T. Esper, the top political appointee in the service, said it will include some jobs that previously fell to Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), which has a sweeping mission that includes overseeing numerous Army schools, and Materiel Command, which focuses on buying equipment and oversees several laboratories and research centers.

Some active-duty soldiers will be assigned to the new Futures Command headquarters, but other civilians and soldiers assigned to it won’t have to move from their current offices. There are often benefits to leaving them where they are, with the more important part being the “re-drawing of lines” in how decisions are made, Esper said.

The Army secretary, addressing potential skepticism about the reorganization being effective, said that “there is certainly a flavor of the month, but this is a flavor of 45 years,” referring to the time since the service’s changes in 1973. Futures Command, he said, “promises to put one person in charge” of everything in big projects, a “fundamental difference.”

“There’s no single bus driver,” he said of the current arrangement. “There’s like 20 hands on its steering wheel.”

Esper said that the Army has selected a general to run Futures Command, but the officer has not yet been announced. Inside Defense reported in May that the commander will be Lt. Gen. John “Mike” Murray, but the Army would not comment on that report.

As part of Futures Command, the Army will create “cross-functional” teams focused on specific things the service wants to improve. Each team will include about 25 people, and be based in an area typically associated with the skill involved. For instance, the team focused on the Army’s next-generation combat vehicle will call the automotive hub of Detroit home, and the team focusing on making individual soldiers more deadly will be based at Fort Benning, Ga., where the Army has a few schools focused on ground combat.

The teams will report directly to Gen. James C. McConville, the Army’s vice chief of staff. The priority, he said, will be to make sure that whatever is planned in the future has the ability to be expanded and updated as technology improves.

“The iPhone is a good example,” McConville said. “You buy an iPhone, and then very quickly as additional capability comes out, you’re able to insert better technology into the system.”

Army Starts Testing "Ironman-Like" Exoskeleton For Future Hybrid Wars


by Tyler Durden
Mon, 07/16/2018 - 23:50

As discussed previously, the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command, or TRADOC, drafted a new strategy for how soldiers will operate, fight, and campaign successfully across multiple domains—space, cyberspace, air, land, maritime—against all enemies (Russia and China) in the 2025-2040 timeframe.

Warrior Maven has confirmed that the Army is literally "gearing up" for decades of hybrid conflict, and in doing so, testing and prototyping self-generating “Ironman-like” soldier exoskeletons. These “breakthrough” suits are designed to transform the combat mission by supporting soldier movements, generating electricity, powering weapons systems and substantially lowering the weight burden of what soldiers carry on the modern battlefield.



The emerging technology, described by Army developers as a “technical breakthrough” is an energy-harvesting exoskeleton suit that can extend mission life for small units or dismounted soldiers on patrol.

“The design is for an energy-harvesting exoskeleton to address the needs of dismounted soldiers. The system can derive energy from the motion of the soldier as they are moving around,” Dr. Nathan Sharps, mechanical engineer, Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) recently told Warrior Maven in an interview.

The implications of this technology would be decisive on tomorrow’s battlefield, and could mean the difference between life and death. Last month, elite soldiers from the 10th Mountain Division, a light infantry division at Fort Drum, New York, started testing exoskeleton technologies from Lockheed Martin that reduces the metabolic cost of transport to improve endurance and reduce fatigue on the modern battlefield.



While the exoskeleton suits have been in development for many years, the technology consistently faces the challenge of finding ways to power the devices to maintain its functionality. While current battery technology has evolved, batteries present significant combat challenges due to recharging and weight. The Army is pursuing various efforts to “lighten the load” for soldiers, including the use of exoskeleton suits, robotic pack mules, and cased telescoped ammo.

“The technologies [exoskeleton suits] we are developing can produce electricity, which can be stored and used to power batteries. This increases the longevity of a mission, decreases the need for resupply and reduces the logistics trail,” Sharps explained.​

Sharps told Warrior Maven that in hot zones, casualties frequently occur during logistics resupply missions.

While the exoskeleton suit harvests energy from the motion of soldiers, it also simultaneously provides injury prevention and higher output to complete the mission.

“This decreases the chance of muscular-skeletal injury. We look at the soldier as an individual ecosystem. We’re not just looking at what they cannot do right now, but also at what challenges they are going to face 20 years from now,” Sharps said.​

Warrior Maven indicates the suit, currently in the early phase of development, is a collaborative effort between the Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) and the Army Natick Soldier Systems Center (NSSC). The engineers said the exoskeleton suit reduces the metabolic cost of transport on the modern battlefield.

“When you move, you bounce up and down, and the gait motion is an inverted pendulum. If you lift every step thousands of times, it is a whole lot of energy you are expending,” said Juliane Douglas, mechanical engineer, CERDEC, told Warrior Maven.​

Army engineers are experimenting with various configurations for the exoskeleton, including a suspended backpack, which can slide up and down on a spring, enabling little or no weight impact on the soldier.



“In mechanical engineering terms, if you have masses moving together, there is a kinetic energy difference between the two. We have mechanisms which can convert that linear motion into electricity,” explained Douglas.

* * *

Warrior Maven said emerging systems are now being integrated into exoskeletons, for example, helmets with high-resolution thermal sensors, wearable computers, various kinds of conformal body armor and even many weapons systems are now being built into a range of Ironman-like exoskeletons.

Not surprisingly, many of the listed technologies above, heavily rely upon the mobile power to operate and limit the combat mission. Energy-harvesting exoskeleton suits would be a gamechanger for soldiers on the modern battlefield to increase combat output while simultaneously decreasing the metabolic cost of transport to complete the mission.

With the Army increasingly expecting hybrid wars in the 2025-2040 timeframe as the Thucydides Trap inflection point nears, “Ironman-like” exoskeletons are emerging as the dominant strategy to defeat potential enemies (especially ascendant China) in the coming conflicts.



Unless of course China steals the technology, reverse engineers it and comes out with the first working product.

Why is Armored Reconnaissance so Important?
Matsimus


Published on Jul 22, 2018
The main battle tank dominates the battlefield with mobility and firepower as the spearhead to any engagement. However there is more to it than just sending in the big guns on the tanks.

They need reconnaissance and eyes on to see what they are up against. That is where recon elements for the battle-group come in.

Hope you enjoy!!

Russia tests new nuclear weapons that can strike ANYWHERE on the planet and wipe out an area ‘the size of France’ in military video footage

  • The Russian defence ministry footage shows an RS-28 Sarmat missile launch
  • It can carry 10 large warheads, 16 smaller ones, or a combination of both
  • Each thermonuclear warhead is capable of being aimed to hit a different target
  • Sarmat is also capable of carrying up to 24 Avangard hypersonic glide vehicles
  • Avangard is said to travel at Mach 20 and can be armed with a nuclear payload
  • Currently, there are no existing defences against this type of technology

Artillery Officer Candidate School: "OCS Fort Sill" 1962 US Army; The Big Picture TV-521

'Since America's earliest days artillery firepower has played an important part in our national defense. In this issue THE BIG PICTURE takes its cameras to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, Artillery Center of the free world where the modern artilleryman is trained in both cannon and missile artillery. THE BIG PICTURE follows a young soldier through Fort Sill's Artillery and Missile Officer Candidate School. The latest training devices, equipment and weapons of conventional artillery are seen in this 30-minute film.'

"The Big Picture" episode TV-521

Originally a public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

The United States Army Field Artillery School (USAFAS) trains Field Artillery Soldiers and Marines in tactics, techniques, and procedures for the employment of fire support systems in support of the maneuver commander. The school further develops leaders who are tactically and technically proficient, develops and refines warfighting doctrine, and designs units capable of winning on future battlefields. The school is currently located at Fort Sill, Oklahoma...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Officer...)

...Modern OCS

Today, Officer Candidate school is offered in two ways. Active duty OCS is a 12-week-long school, taught "in residence" at Ft. Benning, Georgia. Its primary purpose is to commission Second Lieutenants into the Active Army, with a secondary purpose of training selected individuals for duty as officers in the U.S. Army Reserves.

Active duty

The Army's Officer Candidate School is programmed to teach basic leadership and Soldier tasks, using the Infantry battle drills found in Army Field Manual 3–21.8 as a framework for instruction and evaluation of leadership potential. A total of 71 tasks are taught and tested while at OCS. A candidate should expect to be under constant observation and evaluation by their cadre. Mental and emotional stress is induced through a variety of controlled methods, to test problem solving and moral resolve. Additionally, the course is meant to be physically demanding, with numerous tactical road marches, timed runs of varying distance from 2 miles to 5 miles, and Army Combatives training. Beginning with the first class of FY 2008, the calendar length of OCS was shortened from 14 weeks to 12 weeks, thus allowing for more classes to be conducted each Fiscal Year; thereby raising the maximum capacity of the school to train Second Lieutenants to meet future commissioning needs as the Army grows. The current capacity of each class that is conducted is limited to 160 Officer Candidates.

Officer Candidate School is conducted in three phases: Basic phase, Intermediate Phase, and Senior phase. Students are referred to as either Basic Officer Candidates (BOCs), Intermediate Officer Candidates (IOCs), or Senior Officer Candidates (SOCs) as their classes progress. Initially, upon arrival, the candidates will in-process with HHC and compete via Physical Fitness test to enter an OCS company. Candidates should expect to arrive at Ft. Benning in top physical condition as the cutoff has historically been an APFT score of 270–290. Once classed-up, the candidates have virtually no privileges and enter into a highly controlled environment similar to Basic Training, although they are expected to act like leaders and take charge and responsibility immediately. As they progress through the course, they may earn some limited privileges. Their bearing, deportment, and behavior, both individually and collectively, will affect the return of their privileges.

Basic Officer Candidates (BOCs) are identified by wearing a Black ascot. Basic phase will test candidates academically as well as physically; all events are scored comprising the Order of Merit (OML) list used for branch selection. Basic Officer phase culminates with branch selection and phase over to Intermediate phase... Sometimes, graduates are offered 'walk-on' slots in Fort Benning's Airborne or Air Assault schools since they are under the same higher training command as OCS...

All candidates are commissioned as Second Lieutenants upon graduation...
