As you put it yourself, autonomous drones completely change the cost-benefit equation in the Western Pacific.What does similar concept actually mean?
So does a WW1 fighter plane. It takes off, fight and then lands like any 5th gen fighter.
There is a plethora of logical fallacies out there because people has very innovative way of invoking false logic.
My consistent premise is that autonomous drones will change the nature of aerial warfare, both for land-based aircraft and naval-based aircraft. Your rebuttal was just because there's no programme of record, it's not going to happen, which is a very short sighted viewpoint.I am not a fan of Elon Mask. If you wish to make an argument you need to articulate your position. I am not going to read something to try to figure out why it is even relevant to a non stated position.
Yes, very sad, President Obama promised to win the war in Afghanistan during his Presidential campaign and started a large surge there and pulled the plug on Iraq.And already there has been fighting. Basically the US State department made a Faustian bargain full of loop holes large enough for the Taliban to drive a 12 wheeled Truck bomb through.
I searched and searched and searched. I found only some photos on Facebook. And those few photos are of no consequence.Hey guys do you have any photos of USS Cowpens after its modernization? It's the first Rico to complete the program and I found no pictures of it.
The disagreement isn't about the benefits of autonomous drones. I was addressing your post #11974As you put it yourself, autonomous drones completely change the cost-benefit equation in the Western Pacific.
So if it works for the Air Force on land, logically it should work for the sea.
It's the principle between shared aircraft types between the Air Force and the Navy, that we've observed over the past decades.
Your point just demonstrates how disingenuous you are in engaging in a conversation by selective omission. The following is what you quoted I said previously :My consistent premise is that autonomous drones will change the nature of aerial warfare, both for land-based aircraft and naval-based aircraft. Your rebuttal was just because there's no programme of record, it's not going to happen, which is a very short sighted viewpoint.
Elon Mask has the right to say whatever he wants to say. What relevance has that got to do with our conversation?If you don't agree with Elon Musk, then what does that tell you about the Air Force officials who invited Musk to speak at the Air Force Association's Air Warfare Symposium?
I rather not comment.In case you haven't noticed, the entire art of China-watching is based on inferences and logical arguments, because there is so little information publicly released.
Whether I agree or not is my prerogative. It is freedom of choice even if it may be alien to you. You should know when to mind your businessIf you don't agree with such an approach, perhaps you should find another forum?
