Well if we could only use melee weaponry these are a few developments that would be as effective as using bombs etc:
1) NANO MACHINE TECHNOLOGY: Nano machine research today is being developed for medical purposes. However this technology can be adapted for military
purposes like in the video game scenario of the Crysis Series.
A special armor can be developed to interact with nano machines in a humans body. They can increase the speed and strength and thinking capability of
a soldier. Combined with the next advancement... Such armor development would truly be deadly and result in anti-nano suit technology.
2) STEALTH TECHNOLOGY: Why line up to be slaughtered when you can have a small army of ninjas. Combined with the later mentioned technological
development with a suit of armor that can enhance physical abilities with nano-machines and make you invisible, DEADLIEST NINJAS EVER!
3) ROBOTICS: Why send human soldiers to die when you can send super strong 9 ft. humanoid androids with kill kill kill in their programing. Heck why
not create giant robots that can be controlled by humans like gundams. No body said that human vs human was a prerequisite.
4) CYBERNETICS: Technology can develop to the point of the popular series Ghost in the Shell where the technology is so advanced Robot bodies (shells)
essential function on the level that human bodies do. All you have to do is change out the brain case and you can be what ever whoever. Fully
cyberized soldiers will be on the battle field they will never get tired or be effected by environment because they can cut off their sensors at will.
Truely deadly to nations with a flesh and blood military as shown in the series. For those who don't want to forsake their human bodies can have
cybernetic enhancements changing out body parts or replacing lost limbs. As long as your brain case isn't destroyed if you return home you can be
rebuilt as good as new. Plus you can have swords or claws that come out of your arm like wolverine and essential have the same power as nano-suits.
5) GENETICS: Nano-technology could be used in this field to breed super soldiers like captain america altering dna and selecting specific desirable
traits as well as creating artificial traits. Clones could be mass produced and bread like in Starwars to fight battles. They can be created with a
built in time clock which is only a few years so there will not be a poulation overload after the battles. Chimeras could even be created merging
human with certain animal dna that will create beasts with superior abilities on the battlefield. Whether it is super soilders with superior traits or
genetically breed killing machines with a humans body the tail of a scorpion and teeth like a shark... or even simply drugs to enhance human
performance. genetic manipulation would play a key role in the development of soldiers that only fight with melee weaponry. WHO EVER HAS THE MOST
6) WEAPONRY AND MATERIALS: Obviously we will have melee weapons with special abilities made out of the strongest materials know to man. H2H weapons
would include designs like the modern WASP assult knife used by navy seals. This weapon is made out of a very unique material that always stays sharp
and that injects compressed gas into the wound of a victim that will create a blow that is pretty nasty in someones gut. Apply this principle into
nano-machine weapons and you can use a modified katana that will disperse nano-machines in a humans blood stream/through a nano suit that will destroy
the target on a molecular level during the duration of the battle that can only be counter acted bu a micro machine injection or a system that exists
in the targets blood streams. It would be a matter of who's nano tech is the most advanced.
Blades wouldn't be the only thing to advanced. Modified brass knuckles that can release a concentrated emp burst that would mess up a targets
nano-machine or cyberized system would be effective.
You would have development on unique HUD's in armor systems mobile suit or personal to detect stealth tech.
There are thousands of possibilities and I assure you if development wasn't focused on bombs, guns, and projectiles things would be bloodier than
ever. And there would be nothing to stop CHINA or russia from taking over the U.S. using such nano-suit, stealth, and cybernectic technology. Whoever
is the most advanced would rule the planet with out any planet destroying deterrents. I am sure that most of this weaponry is being developed in black
black projects. The future of warfare will be in space and on a molecular level that is unstoppable.
