Outside of the main military articles, there are brief insights into future foreign military capabilities or expansion plans. Many of the contributors are former or current military, professors .
To those who are directly involved with many of the modern military operations this magazine has covered and will most likely cover (see pictures attached below), those reports/stories may not interest you.
But if you are someone who enjoys reading elaborate tactical maps of operations (especially learning how unit types are defined on said maps, and where and how they were utilized) and the successes or failures that were incurred due to political or military leadership (see attached), I recommend picking up this magazine. You can subscribe to it or find it at your local Barnes and Noble, and perhaps other local drug stores.
In the most recent edition (titled "INVASION CUBA 1961-1962), there are two articles that may interest those who are apart of this website. One discusses the future of warfare (titled "SPEC OPS, MERCS, KILLER ROBOTS"), which delves into the increasing use and dependency of SOF units over regular line units in comparison to (at least) two alternatives, mercenaries and killer robots. The drawbacks of each are describe therein. They include elaborate descriptions of SOCOM, JSOC, AFSOC, ASOC, MARSOC, and NSWC. I only included a photo depicting AFSOC and ASOC.
The other article focuses on (predicted) future wars in Megacities, which are increasing with each decade. Whether they be security related or insurgency related, the article discusses how to combat these predicted encounters while pulling from existing data (ie. Battle for Sadr City, Baghdad, Iraq), and the difficulties of forming a cohesive operation between the use of SOF with regular line units, in regard to experience level.
Hope you pick up and enjoy.
