Defense One: The US Army Wants to Reinvent Tank Warfare with AI

A new project aims to make the battlefield more “transparent” — while relying on robots and software that “think” in unpredictable ways.

Tank warfare isn’t traditionally easy to predict. In July 1943, for instance, German military planners believed that their advance on the Russian city of Kursk would be over in ten days. In fact, that attempt lasted nearly two months and ultimately failed. Even the 2003 Battle of Baghdad, in which U.S. forces had air superiority, took a week. For the wars of the future, that’s too slow. The U.S. Army has launched a new effort, dubbed Project Quarterback, to accelerate tank warfare by synchronizing battlefield data with the aid of artificial Intelligence.
