I've been doing some research into the future of the military with an eye
towards writing some sort of role-playing supplement. The going has been
difficult since the details of most current and near-term military systems
(like Land Warrior) are classified. To my delight, I just found the
following archive of whitepapers on what the military might be like in
2025. The study was made by a number of military academies working
together between 1995 and 1996 for presentation to the Department of
Defense. The result is huge and considers 10 different futures and the
roles that the American miliary (particularly the airforce) might play.
I've only read the Executive Summary so far, but it looks remarkably sound
in its extrapolations so I thought I would pass on the URL to anyone else
interested in the topic:
