Around the world, at any given time there is probably at least one armed conflict going on. Right now we’re experiencing a handful of them and while there are plenty of politics to be talked about when it comes to those conflicts, today what Pete and Matt (Editor of Overt Defense) have to talk about specifically is the tools that are being used. The various conflicts around the globe currently going on have been quite interesting as it seems we’ve not only seen the first large-scale deployment of small drones for combat purposes, but also a return to trench warfare, and the appearance of firearms from virtually every corner of the globe winding up in every country but the one they were manufactured in. Pete and Matt will discuss all of that today in addition to some of their predictions in regards to how some of these situations might turn out.
