Yeah but remember don't trust machines and that seems like the way warfare in the future will be. No need for humans except the one controlling them.

Projectile guns will be obsolete once energy based weapons are invented. Will be nice to see if walking mechs can be invented. As for power armor being economic sense thats just an excuse. Politicians love to use that.

Looking forward to an AI taking over as you know some idiot is going to invent an thinking AI. Some researchers have already started. Hell a scientist put a dead mouse brain in an machine and it worked for a few weeks. I'll stop there as were going way off topic.

Here is the ture power project and what there aim is to look like in the future. It's going to happen. Program Executive Office (PEO) Soldier to increase strength, endurance and load capacity for every solider.
