Outline of military science and technology

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to military science:
Military science – study of the technique, psychology, practice and other phenomena which constitute war and armed conflict. It strives to be a scientific system that if properly employed, will greatly enhance the practitioners ability to prevail in an armed conflict with any adversary. To this end, it is unconcerned whether that adversary is an opposing military force, guerrillas or other irregulars, or any adversary who knows of or utilizes military science in response.

2. Types of military technology
Weapon
Armour – protective clothing intended to defend its wearer from intentional harm in combat and military engagements, typically associated with soldiers
Artillery – large caliber weapons firing projectiles one at a time. Artillery pieces are crew serviced weapons that provide direct or indirect trajectories for the shell
Medieval siege weaponry
Armoured fighting vehicle
Tank
Fortifications – military constructions and buildings designed for defense in warfare–
Mêlee – hand-to-hand combat or mano-a-mano; weapons commonly used in mêlee include swords, clubs, spears, axes, or fists: almost any tool with which one can hit someone else
Military vehicles – are land combat or transportation vehicles, excluding rail-based, which are designed for or in significant use by military forces
Armoured personnel carrier
Martial arts – also known as fighting systems, martial arts are bodies of codified practices or traditions of training for unarmed and armed combat, usually without the use of guns and other modern weapons–
Military aviation and military aircraft – Military aviation include such areas as transport, bombing, surveillance, and aerial warfare
Communications
Military communications – the transmission medium that links military components on the battlefield
Military engineer
Military robots – autonomous or remote-controlled devices designed for military applications
Unmanned Ground Vehicles
Unmanned Undersea Vehicles
Unmanned Combat Air Vehicles
Military doctrine – level of military planning between national strategy and unit-level
Military thought and planning – military tactics, strategy, and doctrine
Military strategy – collective name for planning the conduct of warfare
Military tactics – collective name for methods of engaging and defeating an enemy in battle
Comparative military ranks
Military rank
Military unit – an organization within an armed force. It may consist of any number of soldiers, ships, vehicles, or aircraft. Armies, navies, and air forces, are organised hierarchically into groups of various sizes for functional, tactical and administrative purposes

Mine
Landmine
Naval mine
Naval warfare – combat in and on seas and oceans
Naval ship
Submarine
Navy
Small arms and firearms – a firearm is a kinetic energy weapon that fires either a single or multiple projectiles propelled at high velocity by the gases produced by action of the rapid confined burning of a propellant
