Technology could bridge the gap of man's limitations; such as pulling heavy g's in a performance environment. Tech could never replace a human actually being in theater to evaluate a situation, making a tactical response and adjust to any wildcard.

Pilots need to be in the cockpit, not seated in front of a monitor with a joystick.
G7, so well put!!
