New Enemy, New Weaponry
Because of these drastically different environments and constant threats, the U.S. Military is continually developing new and dynamic methods of increasing survivability of the troops while inflicting damage on the enemy with surgical precision. There have been many different types of weapons systems fielded during the last eight years since we began our campaign in Afghanistan and later Iraq. Some have been adopted by our armed forces and others are still in the development stages. Many changes have been made in general combat tactics to meet this threat. A change in tactics means a change in the equipment used to fight.
