Why is military technology going so slow?
Like, if you're Russian, look at the fucking picture, copy the shit and you have a jet, roll it out, test it and improve if it fails, why is there a 20 year gap between F16 and F22?
Is it the incompetence of government?
Do you have any fucking idea about how much money these latest tech weapon cost?!
Not just to make but to research, prototype, test, etc.
No, you do not. Now shut your stupid fucking face.
The only incompetence I'm seeing here is asking a question, not bothering to research the costs, time and labour involved and then proceed to blame the government.
Just be grateful that people like you aren't involved in the slowly advancing military.
In terms of what? We don't have ion drives or warp drives or hyper drives because they're not real. (Ion drives are, but they're have too low power/weight ratio.)
As for weapons, the Chinese just announced their 2nd gen laser weapons.
>look at the fucking picture, copy the shit and you have a jet
That's a mild fog. You can still see the sun so obviously some % of light would get through. Pretty cool that they are able to aim through fog but nonetheless they lose power and range.
If they figure out how to shoot through a cloud that blocks sunlight, then they've got it covered.
Are you not familiar with optics, quantum mechanics and basic theoretical CS (turing machines, algorithms, complexity theory) You're not from /fit faggot
I'm sure you'll make a great MD faggot
Well..automation is becoming quite the thing.
The US, China, Russia, and other players with lots of money for imperialism might start looking and developing killer robots so they don't need to send valuable humans into war zones.
It'll end up being a battle between minds. Not strength. Who every can come up with a indestructible robot that can destroy legions of robots will be very valuable.
