Intermittent fire
JANUARY-FEBRUARY 2016: The tank warfare just few years ago was being dubbed as ‘history’ after the invention of military satellite, ISR technologies, unmmaned aerial vehicles and robotic technologies but Russia has once again proved in Ukraine war that tanks are still relevant for 21st century warfare.

Suddenly, both Russia and the US are caught in crossfire for developing robotic and most sophisticated tanks for their militaries. While the NATO will go for CV90 Adaptive tank and US made GCV tank by 2019, Russia has already gone for mass production of world’s most deadly Armata T-14 tank which will be deployed by 2017.
 
Flying scanners
NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 2015: With the introduction of new generation war technologies, the modern warfare is all about achieving swift victory in which the enemy is inflicted with massive destruction within hours of the battle wave, leaving retaliation capacity of the opponent to a nearly dead end situation.  

Countries are investing huge sums of money into advanced technologies so that their militaries can be equipped with modern systems to deal with new situations where hi-speed data can enhance decision making process faster and neutralize high risk threats urgently. 
 
Releasing beam
SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2015: The 21st century battle is going to be fought through various lethal bandwidths of beams than guns and rockets as modern militaries are keen to deploy precision weapon which can smash targets with the pressing of switch buttons than firing costly missiles.

The whole concept is flying an aircraft is getting a reduced option while firing long range missiles are going to be costly for battlefield commanders apart from handling and storing. But pressing a high powered microwave beam or electromagnetic pulse will cost quite cheaper and effective than missiles.

Thus, military forces have been actively developing next-generation weapons that can take warfare well beyond the guns and rockets that populate modern arsenals.
 
Weapon of wheels
JULY-AUGUST 2015: With the advent of new technologies, unmanned ground vehicles are being increasingly used to defend ground targets and carry out reconnaissance in the battlefield which is filled with lots of hazards and release of toxic weapons by the adversary.

That is why unmanned armored vehicles are regularly used and are expected to remain a very important part in military operations.

These vehicles provide ground forces with enhanced capabilities in terms of mobility, firepower and protection. One of the major factors contributing the growth of the global armored vehicle market is the threats from bordering countries
 
Locating shadows
MAY-JUNE 2015: As the modern battlefield is getting hi-tech and changing the rules of engagement, the demand for new intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) technology and infrastructure is growing significantly to meet new challenges and eliminating the elements of surprise.

Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, which are strategically important in peacetime, are a vital national asset in crises when time is a critical factor in decision-making and demands for information escalate drastically.

No doubt, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance are critical to a nation’s strategic defence. Many nations are actively employing ISR throughout the global theatres such
 
Domain of weapon
MAR-APRIL 2015: Despite concerted efforts to control cyberspace, cyberspace has become a new domain of warfare in the modern battleground, joining the existing natural domains of land, sea, air, and space which can transform the effectiveness of the battle zone many folds.

The cyber warfare challenge is growing at an alarming space for leading militaries who think one day they will have to resort to cyber weapon as their last arsenal in a contested battle which can be swift and decisive.

This can cripple a nation without a single shot being fired at the enemy or its position but the outcome can be devastating as one can see during even peace time when hostile hackers or state sponsored activists and technicians play havoc with opponent’s network assets. 
 
Sharp penetration
JAN-FEB 2015: With the introduction of revolution in military affairs, militaries around the world are gearing up for a new generation weapon profile that can enhance their strike capability while minimizing collateral damage that can result in a crisis.

Today, precision-guided munitions (PGMs) with their high degree of discrimination and accuracy again hold such promise. In modern warfare, both in terms of methods employed and of the greater concern placed is on limiting human suffering during conflict.

Technology has always been part of warfare, but it has not resulted uniformly in diminishing the frequency of conflict or the amount of human
 
Flying support
DECEMBER 2014: Today’s naval aircraft have come a long way from the Wright Brothers’ flying machine. These modern and complex aircraft require a maintenance team that is far superior to those of the past.

Other countries look upon the United States as the leader of the free world. This accomplishment comes partly through its military strength achieved through sea power.

The ability to fight in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War came directly from the Navy’s sea power. Taken as a whole, most naval aviation in the world is land based-aircraft functioning either as scouts or as virtual extensions of coastal artillery. Their purpose is to exert control over the seas over which they can fly.
 
Capturing shores
NOVEMBER 2014: The Asia Pacific regional security interests require the navies of this region to have the ability to respond comprehensively to political or military contingencies, which can arise with little or no warning. An amphibious capability provides the militaries with a range of political response options to apply military force, and project national power.

Many countries in the region have recognized the need to augment their amphibious capability in the developing geopolitical environment in the Indian Ocean Region and South China Sea maritime challenges. Many ASEAN countries are now possess varying-sized, specialized amphibious ground forces equivalent to the US Marine Corps (USMC) or Russian Naval Infantry.

This is no coincidence given that, because these formations are distinct from the army ground forces, maintaining them can be expensive. Moreover, the ships designed to give these forces mobility-large amphibious landing vessels-are 
 
Rapid strike
OCTOBER 2014: The future of the battlefield will be closely tied in with the advance of electronics computers, robots and sensors will become more common on the future battlefield. Infantrymen are being equipped with digital radios and computers. Night vision devices have been around for some time. Tanks have highly sophisticated targeting computers, radar and imaging devices. All these devices are electronic in nature.

As these devices become more and more common they will be integrated into helmets, weapons, and battle suits. Vehicles will become highly automated and detection of the enemy will become easier. As weapons become more lethal it will become more important to have an advantage over the enemy. However, electronics are not invulnerable.

In the past, the threat of mutually assured destruction provided a lasting deterrent against the exchange of multiple high-yield nuclear warheads.
