More on near future combat….

This evening I’ve been catch up with my emails and blogs after a busy weekend doing megagame stuff (see tomorrow’s post for the details) and this popped up on my radar:

http://madsciblog.tradoc.army.mil/38-the-multi-domain-dragoon-squad-a-hyper-enabled-combat-system/

It is a fascinating post on how the American army is trying to cenceptualise future combat, a tricky thing to do at the best of time.

What makes the post useful is it provides a hypothetical platoon organisation which, convientently for me, features 12 soldiers, the same number I’ve just painted up.  See my previous post here. I just need to get 4 futuristic looking jeeps, 8 quadripedial robots (I’ll scour the 15mm science fiction ranges for something suitable) and make 12 drones. Given the small size of the drones I’m thinking of scratch building them from tile spacers. It would give me a strong consistent 4 armed base to build my quadcopters on. I think I trip to the hardware shop is in order.

 

Cheers,

 

Pete.

  1. Having just watched Transformers The Last Knight with the kids yesterday they have some pretty funky drones. Have a look at Alternative armies sci fi range, I think they have combat droids in that range. I mainly stick to Flintloque so haven’t looked that closely.
