Abstract:

While the new weapons likely to appear on the battlefields of the 1990s will add formidable capabilities, some will be offset by direct countermeasures and others by the effects of properly integrated combined arms tactics. There will be important improvements to ground-based air defence weapons, to air-to-ground weapons, to anti-tank guided missiles, to land mines, and to anti-personnel weapons. Dominant features of the 1990s will be electronic warfare, fast movement, and the rapid expenditure of ammunition. Author
