Tomorrow's election will determine which way our military is headed. Will it be be obsolescence or for modernization? As a voter we have the the opportunity to choose. Everybody please vote!

ground forces aren't fairing much better. Hummers, HEMMTs, Bradleys, Abrams, LAV, AAAV, M109, etc all predate the 80's. Even some of the new stuff, Stryker and M1117 are getting long in the tooth.

The only real miricle of US prodcution is that our equipment was so much more advanced than the rest of the worlds, that it is still viable today, while "adversary nations" are still trying to catch up.
