Drones vs. Tanks – How Will Drones Change Warfare?




It’s 2020. Combat drones like the Bayraktar TB2 and the IAI Herop have just wreaked havoc in the Nagorno-Karabakh War. Many are wondering about the impact of drones on modern warfare.
Some are claiming the end of tanks, however looking back at history, the end of something else is much more likely. The recent drone revolution is eerily similar to the firearm revolution of the 16th century, so why not kill two birds with one stone?

    Do you think we are currently going through a new military revolution?

    Note: 1.) Yes, I’m aware there are ground based unmanned weapons and air-to-air drones, however since these have never been proven, drawing any conclusions would be pure speculation at this point. And we wouldn’t want to do that, would we? 2.) No, I’m not switching over to modern topics, I’m merely branching out a bit… Especially when its relevant.

  12. Aleksa Petrovic on April 13, 2021 at 1:31 am

    Death of tanks? I heared death of infantry which makes no sense, but death of tanks is extreamly stupid. Drones will probably be just another aspect of warfare, similar to gunpowder artillery or air force.

    PS. Nice to have you back. I hope you are well and that next year will be better for you. I would say good job, but I fear that youtube will find this offensive and ban me again.

    better than i expected. Thanks

    the real question is why aren’t air defense systems more pushed? we need better air defense it seems

  16. Liar on April 13, 2021 at 1:45 am

    Drones and drone technology is widely accessible for even the tiny 2nd world nations, but modern anti-air/drone defenses aren’t. That’s why in conflicts so far we only see drones operating easily with little to no opposition. If large modern nations fought we would see that drones would have a hard time getting through modern anti-air systems.

    For example, Rhinemetall made a whole anti-air and anti-drone defense suites, one example being shooting multiple beams of laser to simply disable the drone sensors, cameras and melt plastic parts.

    Great Video; if anyything this war proves that big heavy fuck-off machine guns still have use in the anti-air role

  18. Patricius vun Kempen on April 13, 2021 at 1:52 am

    nice argument,
    also tanks are the modern heavy cavalry, they breech larger formations and bring shock value , just as cavalry did, with differences ofc

    the thing with drone sis that, pilots are easier trained and found than pilots.

    didn’t expect to see Soyjack here

    Somebody is very angry at futurists, to make a hole video about how they are wrong. 😀

  23. André on April 13, 2021 at 1:55 am

    You forgot that the English custom of dismounting their men-at-arms and having mostly polearm-armed infantry was heavily influenced by the Scottish.

    Also, the use of terrain and defensive structures were a key factor in the early defeats of Men-at-arms. (Have a look at Ottoman tactics, they’re reminiscent of Hussite ones).

    btw, it can be argued that muskets and pikes removed lancers from the forefront of western military thiniking since Cuirassiers and cavalry skirmishers became the focus of attention. (I know, Polish Hussars existed ).

    Who is back?

  26. milan mericskay on April 13, 2021 at 1:57 am

    I read in many report that M.B.T. did amazing in many situations, holding grounds on there own agains’t many of ennemies (despite the fact that the tanks used in this war weren’t the most modern in service in the world), i do agree that their role and importance on the modern battlefields has change but i think they are far from done in playing an important role.
    Amazing video as always , love your channel.

    I hope that you are doing well after your break and that you and your family are healthy

  31. Elder Moose on April 13, 2021 at 2:02 am

    I feel like the biggest lesson from this war and the last 20 years is the the US lead infatuation with complicated sophisticated systems and platforms is a giant Achilles heel that isn’t discussed enough. What’s the point of having such a massive military budget if you over spend on everything and waste money on maitance of expensive status symbols.

  32. Zamiq Qarayev on April 13, 2021 at 2:03 am

    Armenia`s military aggression resulted in the occupation by the Armenian armed forces of 20 percent of the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan – Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven adjacent districts, including the town of Khankandi, the districts of Khojaly, Shusha, Lachin, Khojavand, Kalbajar, Aghdam, Fuzuli, Jabrayil, Gubadli and Zangilan, as well as 13 villages in Tartar district, 7 villages in Gazakh district and 1 village in Sadarak district in Nakhchivan.

  33. Patricius vun Kempen on April 13, 2021 at 2:06 am

    this is the best analysis i’ve seen so far of this development
    its similiar with battleships being faced out as aircraftcarriers took over their role as main offensive naval asset
    also in conjunction with drone, this could make smaller aircraft carriers feasable, that literaly fire drones out, that are then steered by operaters somehwere compeltely else? or on board.
    this could make it possible for smaller countrys to actualy rival naval power, and actualy establish full souvereignity over near trade routs, as the clumsy appartus of the USA with their expensive oldschool carriers looss out, or needs more time to adapt.
