    I think 20 is an optimistic estimate because many will be lost if there will be real AA weapons protecting targets. But even 10 missions would be 10 times more than current missiles. And no human pilots will be lost even if some drone is destroyed. And of course a large number of attacking drones is difficult to suppress. Usually defenders have a limited number of air defense missiles to use.

    You don't need artilliery round to bring down a helicopter. See here what 40mm shells do (at 3 minutes there is one helicopter target example) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uddx-5xmB4k

    AFVs and similar moving units with weapons may become more often unmanned. So robots fighting other robots. Of course people are still needed because robots can't do everything and can't go everywhere where human soldiers can, but these unmanned, possibly remotely controlled things are getting better year after year. Can you imagine drones with night vision equipment vs humans without similar kit? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVnA-BYUdes Starting from 3:20 you can see how much forest helps.

    I think detecting and destroying drones will be one area that will get more funding. I've read about planes co-working with drones and possibilities are endless. And it's not just in air, but unmanned "vehicles" will also appear on land and sea as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E93-480jsw0

  12. I played a CMBN QB with some extreme settings (night etc) where LOS seemed to be less than 10 meters. A tank was often just next to an enemy tank and still it wouldn't spot it, no matter how long I waited. Or a vehicle was right next to enemy so it could see it, but usually wouldn't fire it. Even with Fire command. It was the weirdest QB I've played. I really wished I could have used vehicle lights briefly to see if there's anything ahead of the vehicle. Or infanry flares like we now have infantry smoke.
  13. Once I cleared the old movement commands (instead of just moving waypoints to different parts of the map), then the lone stuck soldier started moving. But no more reports about that - the game ended.
  14. And if part of the squad won't move back to the straggler(s) then the stragglers cannot be moved. Currently I have 2 soldiers in the original problem position and another one who decided to stay in another part of the map. Won't move.
  15. Yes, it seems that what I'm seeing is a similar problem that has been reported already in 2016. I have not seen this often, maybe because most maps don't have these steep cliffs that my current QB map has.
