The American company General Dynamics showed a promising Stryker X infantry fighting vehicle. The vehicle will replace the Stryker infantry fighting vehicle, which has been in service for more than 40 years. The BMP is equipped with all-round sensors and provides the crew with a 360-degree view around. The soldiers inside the Stryker X are protected by an integrated active protection system. The vehicle was created on the basis of the Swiss Piranha III armored vehicle and is equipped with a hybrid diesel-electric power unit. The BMP is positioned as a reconnaissance vehicle with the maximum possible silent movement. The manufacturer does not provide technical data.

The GLSDB combines an M26 ground-based rocket motor from the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) with Boeing's air-launched GBU-39B SDB. It has a range of 150 km (93 mile), can attack both stationary and moving targets, and can be “ground-launched from a wide variety of launchers and configurations”, according to Saab.

The US Army is attempting to take targeting from remote sources to a far greater level than this war. They are are attempting to integrate multiple disparate ISR sources into a common AI clearing house and the have another AI inventory in theater assets to engage them to solve the traveling salesman problems of assets in range and available factored for target priority. This will involve UAVs but testing has already involved commercial satellites; the goal is an ISR source independent system - drones, satellites, HUMINT, whatever so long as the data is formatted correctly. Project Convergence has achieved fire times measured in minutes and seconds, surely under ideal test conditions of course. But the direction is pretty clearly ubiquitous ISR with near instant response by fire units. Maybe not for years, but it is coming.

The US Air Force has unveiled the new B-21 Raider bomber. The manufacturer positions the bomber as the world's only sixth-generation aircraft. According to Northrop Grumman, the aircraft is capable of reaching anywhere in the world, carrying nuclear and conventional weapons, and overcoming the most advanced air defense systems thanks to improved stealth technology. Since the introduction of the B-2 Spirit aircraft, the B-21 Raider has become the first new US Air Force bomber in 34 years. It is reported that using cloud technologies, you can create a "digital twin" of the aircraft, which will help track the performance of combat missions. The B-21 Raider bomber has evolved from the B-2 bomber and should incorporate all the best. As previously reported, the B-21 should become cheaper in terms of purchase and operation costs than its predecessor, the B-2. This should be achieved by reducing the size of the new bomber and its carrying capacity, as well as partial unification with other US Air Force aircraft. The B-21 has been given a more durable surface material for stealth, requiring less maintenance effort and minimizing operating costs and downtime. The price of the aircraft is $750 million. The first flight of the B-21 Raider bomber should take place in 2023. Detailed specifications of the B-21 are classified.
