Summary In war, competing systems introduce new technological means to gain advantage. Greater technological complexity, however, creates greater uncertainty-due not only to technical problems but also to unintended consequences when new technology is applied within the chaotic environment of war. In the last years of the war against Japan in the Pacific, Boeing's B-29 was the technological solution to attacking Japan across long distances. Application, however, was not as simple as planners had hoped. Uncertainties and unintended consequences accompanied the B-29's employment
