    I do agree though that no trigger should be pulled without a human doing the pulling, or button pushing as it were.

    I agree it isnt, but thats not much of a defence, because i g'tee it soon will be. Last November, the US Department of Defense opened a call for the development of “automatic target recognition of personnel and vehicles from an unmanned aerial system using learning algorithms." The potential leap forward is profound: today the talk is about making devices the size of a domestic drone, capable of deciding for themselves and without human supervision who is to be attacked and then doing so. According to what Paul Scharre, ex-special operations officer, former Pentagon adviser and author of the new book Army of None: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War (WW Norton & Company, 2018), said “no country has stated that they intend to build fully autonomous weapons,” at the same time “few have ruled them out either.”


    Take the Legion Pod autonomous drone that flies alongside an F15 jet- its a multi-function sensor system developed by Lockheed Martin that facilitates collaborative targeting operations in radar-denied settings. That is, Legion Pod is capable of detecting and tracking enemies while remaining hidden from the radar. Its a trivial task to adapt and fit it with missiles or cannon which it can fire on its own when targets in are range and acquired.

    Not a good idea. Autonomous functioning is not far behind.

    Defense? It doesn't need to be defended it's simply true. These are not autonomous weapons systems.

    Personally I think autonomous weapons systems should be banned by US and international law.

    The new long range machine gun being evaluated currently is the Sig, chambered in .338NM.

    The new Light/Medium Macine gun is chambered in Sig's .277 Fury.

    6.5's have their place, but they cannot hold their own compared to heavier, high velocity, higher BC rounds with Higher SD's.

    Different rifles for different roles.

    The Barret is the heavy sniper rifle bolt action. Swappable to. 308 for training.

    The Creed rifles are semi auto, and 6.5 was selected because it feeds high bc bullets from ar10 magazines.

    As for mgs they are settling around the 6.5 replacing 7.62, and .338 Norma mag replacing .50 big.
