The myth of the 'game-changer' weapon | Asia Times

And this is the problem with the whole “game-changer” argument when it comes to “new and amazing” weapons: They actually rarely tip the balance in war.

The Spifire & Hurricane, the Chain Home radar stations, and the Command and Control system introduced to co-ordinate them. Undoubtedly a game-changer, surely?

The German U-boat fleet was damn near a game-changer too.
