The Pentagon has begun briefing key allies on plans for advanced weapons technologies aimed at offsetting Russian and Chinese military gains.Defense Secretary Robert Work said that he met in early November for "formal collaborations" with close foreign partners to explain the high-tech weapons systems, which are aimed at restoring U.S. dominance in conventional warfare.President-elect Donald Trump has said he hopes to improve relations with Russia, a process that might be complicated by a new high-tech arms race.Work summarized an unclassified version of the briefing he shared with allies. Work briefed Trump's transition team about these technologies Tuesday. He also shared with them a summary prepared by the Pentagon's Office of Net Assessment describing in graphical form the declining U.S. edge, or "overmatch," in conventional weapons, relative to Russia and China.The value of such ultra-high-tech battle networks, from the Pentagon's perspective, is that they would radically complicate a potential adversary's ability to plan an attack – and thereby, in theory, provide better deterrence.
