    Azerbaijani and Armenian military Clashes

    Thoughts from the article. 1. We need to have the capability to significantly degrade enemy ISR capabilities. Surprise surprise. It's likely that future conflict could see the requirement to achieve "ISR Superiority," or "ISR Degradation" of the opposing force, similar to how we would seek air...

    Marines to Retool to Meet China Threat

    I love tactical/operational/strategic narratives.  This is a good one on the US PACFLT losing. https://www.usni.org/magazines/proceedings/2018/may/how-we-lost-great-pacific-war?fbclid=IwAR0n28Cf_HZr3PZFQAzz-u0WLMRhSirF6ZzPVy-o2ijwAwFlUMWxec1wcxY The Marines just recently did a significant...

    Marines to Retool to Meet China Threat

    What I've noticed is that the discussion about the China fight is that it is always imagined in Asia and it's related waters. There's good reasons for that but what if we fought them elsewhere, like say Africa? Or what if we fight there proxies, or vice versa? Fighting actual Chinese forces in...

    Marines to Retool to Meet China Threat

    The Cmdt is not messing around. Big changes afoot for the Corps. Dropping all tanks and 18 cannon batteries and other things in order to reduce the size of the force and gain additional UAS and C130 squadrons and rocket batteries...

    Winning The Deep Fight

    Lessons Learned by a LAV Captain - Defense

    It’s an expensive way to fight but I don’t know about training as those missiles are simulated.

    Lessons Learned by a LAV Captain - Defense

    An interesting read back from a SBCT at NTC.  I pulled it from twitter so that's why the flow is a little weird. I talk a lot about leveraging the SBCTs strength so I want to provide an example from a defense. I started drawing this out about a year before execution, with the goal to get an...

    Could the CF deploy a battalion for NATO missions

    Not if we're going to maintain our current mission sets and the current approach to readiness.  If we are going to drop Ukraine, Latvia, or Iraq to do this, then yes. If you look at the numbers we currently have deployed, its well over a BG in strength.  Heavy in NCO's and officers while many...

    Milnet Decision Game 4: Seize the Far Bank

    I met the new editor of the CAJ this week and talked to him for a few mins about the state of the journal.  After over a year since submission it looks like my TDG article will get published.  I told him I'd be willing to make more for the journal as well.  The ones we have here would be good...

    Why You Don't Leave Tanks Without Infantry Support

    I thought the same.  You can probably afford a little less infantry protection if you don’t penny packet your tanks.  I always think of the stories I heard about M1’s raking their fellow tanks with coax to get the Iraqis crawling all over them.

    Why You Don't Leave Tanks Without Infantry Support

    Lessons Learned by a LAV Captain - Defense

    Thoughts continued. 5.  There is a significant battle to be fought in the covering force area that I think sometimes gets paid short shrift.  Covering forces are there to deceive the enemy as to the location of the MDA as well as delaying and attriting the enemy.  They will also provide...

    Lessons Learned by a LAV Captain - Defense

    Spent some time over the last few days reviewing Jim Storr's new book again and discussing the issues with another person who enjoys this stuff. He has enlightened me on some of his conclusions based on his historical research.  Some of the stuff we've talked about: 1.  From a coy perspective...

    The Brigade Fight

    We've discussed structure, and deep operations.  To this I'd like to add reconnaissance and security (R&S). The US is looking at potentially re-establishing R&S formations to enable Divs and Corps maneuver. This sees Divisions and Corps shaping deep operations and enabling the close fight for...

    Warfare in the Digital Age - Not just a deployed problem

    It seems like the general consensus is that cell phones and social media are a threat. I would suggest that we need to see them more as a tool and a reality of our culture and operating environment. We can't just turn back time and make them go away. We need to understand their strengths and...

    How is a CO of a battalion chosen?

    I’m in the process of rereading Thinking Fast and Slow for my research project here at JCSP and it has some insight on how things like this should be done.  A simple formula that identifies critical attributes and assigns them scores will likely result in better candidates than informal...

    Martial Arts/CQC Trg in CAF (split fm Probe of WPG soldier's suicide)

    Ballz has the relevant points all wrapped up.  I will only add that after a few months of cajoling we've managed to get PSP to buy mats for CFC, so we will have a grappling program running here after Christmas with a BJJ black belt instructing and me supporting. We're moving in the right direction.
