Scope edit

This task force covers all topics related to military science, technology, and theory, including strategy, tactics, doctrines, and technology developed for military purposes. Topics related specifically to weaponry are generally handled by the weaponry task force, which may be considered a sub-group of this one. Topics related to vehicles are generally handled by weaponry task force, while land vehicles are covered by the vehicles task force.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Science-technology-and-theory-task-force=yes or SciTech=y to the {{WPMILHIST}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Military science, technology, and theory task force articles.
