From now on US soldiers will be armed with Android
Commanders can warn soldiers about dangers moving their way and a new icon will pop up on the map of the fighter’s device. The same warning could come from the soldier for its captain.
“This is a capability we have never, ever been able to provide,” Brigade General John Morrison, one of the people making the Army data network happen said.
The 3rd and 4th Brigade Combat Teams of the 10th Mountain Division, and this means between 1,200 and 1,400 soldiers, will be able to benefit from the system starting from October in Afghanistan.
