General Mark Millie, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said tanks will play an important role in ground warfare over the next 25 years. He believes that the military already needs a new armored vehicle. This will have to use automated uninhabited towers, active protection systems. The number of the crew should be reduced.
One of the important aspects of the tank of the future is that it is possible to send an unmanned vehicle into battle. In addition, they must use the latest materials to reduce weight and increase maneuverability.
Another promising technology is the introduction of lasers as weapons in tanks.
