    World's 10 Most Powerful Militaries

    Saw this on Yahoo today.  Thought this would bring some debate and a few chuckles.  I pretty much disagree with the entire list, but let's see what others have to say.  This list is based on total numbers and not on any type of quality.  I will admit that I am somewhat uneducated at this topic...

    Ask a Nerdy Question.

    This thread is meant to exercise your brain.  Ask and answer questions about anything military, whether it be technical (my favourite), literal, scientific (my second favourite), or completely random.  Please attempt to keep it at least semi-academic, although humour should be encouraged; nerd...

    Does a Regt support a Bde or does 3 Btys support 3 BGs?

    I pose this question to ponder whether a Regt as a whole is more effective than 3 Btys properly placed.  The standard of 3 or 4 Btys linear in past certainly made sense for a number of reasons.  Self protection, logistical, C2. We have come leaps and bounds as far as C2 goes and our ability...

    Does anyone still consider Artillery an area weapon?

    Hello all, I am posing this question as with todays COE I believe the use of artillery as an area weapon is outdated.  With the close proximity of friendlies and the many moving parts of a BG we must be as accurate as possible.  If we were to revert back to cold war tactics I would agree but, i...
