Here's Thomas Wictor calling out the Fifth Column media that is as usual getting the story wrong when it comes to our military and the enemies they face out there.

gab.ai/Thomas_Wictor/…
Here's the article Thomas is referring to, where the 20-something tech writers make our miltary sound clueless, as if every new round of weapons development *didn't go through this testing phase*.

Look how the writers presented this, as if the weapons systems were finished and only then a ton of holes/vulnerabilities were discovered. EVERY NEW WEAPONS SYSTEM goes through MULTIPLE ROUNDS of this kind of testing. The problems are being spotted & fixed.
You have to read down to the bottom of the article to discover the weapons systems in question are 'still in development' which means still in the testing phase.
20-something tech writers can INSTANTLY see the vulnerabilities but our military guys who'll be using it in combat can't?

For clicks, the tech writers will make it sound like the DOD isn't doing any real testing/is dismissing any bad results.
"Too bad our stuff isn't as good as that Russian/Chinese stuff..." is where these guys end up.

And if you know the actual state of the Russian/Chinese military, you'd know what a joke that is.
