Excerpt
Excerpt: In the early twentieth century, the instruments of war were simply called weapons. The cannon, the rifle, or the bayonet were all considered separate pieces of weaponry to be used in combat. By the Second World War, technology began to be integrated into combat. The invention of radar and sonar extended the field of combat to greater and greater ranges, and it was no longer necessary to sight targets directly. As technology progressed, the very nature of weapons also changed. Now, it is no longer sufficient to discuss individual pieces of weaponry, they must be taken in the context of the entire weapons system, which is the complete set of interrelating pieces that function together to achieve the goal of destroying a target.
