The Metaorizonal Age of naval combat refers to the latter part of the 20th century and into the 21st century. It refers to the fact that combat ranges became standardized to over the horizon. At its earliest extent it is tied to the advent of the long-range carrier based aircraft and shipborne missiles, generally understood to be the Great War, but is definitively determined to be the late 1970s and beyond.

Etymology

The term Metaorizonal Age comes from the Burgoignesc language meaning "beyond the horizon". The word itself is a Burgoignesc neolog from the Istroyan prefix "meta-" meaning beyond and "orízontas" meaning horizon. The term was coined by Navy of Burgundie strategists in the 1980s as part of a process to modernize the navy to reflect the new threat environment.

History

Aircraft carriers

From their primitive form as a repurposed ship with a flattop retrofit the aircraft carrier changed the face of naval warfare. In particular, the innovation of carrier-based jet aircraft brought about the start of the Metaorizonal Age.

Long-range missiles

As missile technology improved, their ranges and accuracy improved, and their technology became more ubiquitous, the age of massive ship to ship broadsides ended. Powerful warheads rendered even the most powerful armor moot and heralded the end of the Age of Battleships.

Satellites

GPS guided munitions, global surveillance, satellite communications, etc.

Cyber-warfare
