The article introduces the idea of non-fossil fuel powerplants which are capable of surviving and being transported for future land combat in the U.S. Increasing cost and vulnerability of fossil fuel extraction and distribution systems and worldwide proliferation of highly accurate weapons have prompted the concept. It is noted that mobile powerplants allow the manufacture of hydrogen in theater and recharging of vehicular batteries in the field.
