The US Armed Forces possess a huge technological edge in equipment, and train constantly at areas such as the National Training Center against a perfessional OPFOR. Add to that some of the best strategic and tactical doctrine out there and a strong desire for victory and it's definately a winning combination.

Maybe the Nimitz class CVNs or the B-2 or the work horse F-16 or M-16.

Too broad of a question. Most effective for what?

Each weapon is a tool for a particular job.

Taking the US Arsenal as a whole is like looking at a big toolbox. The bredth of your question is like asking us to say whether the screwdriver or the hammer is better.

A very simple question it would appear, but weapons are designed to do certain jobs, if one was in the Air Force then you would swear that one of your aircraft would fit the bill. If you were in the Navy you would look at your Aircraft Carriers or Nuclear Submarines. In the Army it would depend again on what type of unit you were serving with, some one in the Tanks would pick a Tank, in the Artillery then you would have your favourite Gun and so on through all the units. As there are more infantry require in war than any other unit then it is most likely it would be some thing to do with them.

The Nimitz-class CVNs, plus a San Antonio-class LPD, could fight most minor wars on their own and expect to win.
