In the efforts to improve force effectiveness, the first item on the agenda should be investment in education and training in the realms of tactics, and strategy. The successful exploitation of military technologies requires that they be adapted to the tactical, operational, and strategic doctrines pursued. Military operations have to do with schemes of war or the art of war. The technological qualifications of an officer are important for a preplanned attack, but after the initial contact, initiative is all important. The public debate regarding the utility of new conventional weapons technologies has evolved a great deal. The possibility of being equipped with weapons with a 'one shot-one kill' capability seemed very appealing, to say the least. This was particularly the case given the favorable cost-exchange ratios these systems were said to enjoy against the traditional platforms that they were meant to destroy. The weapons technologies developed and produced must meet the requirements of the tactics, operations, and strategy adopted.
