functional aesthetics

Military equipment is assigned a high aesthetic value, either on purpose or through the combined enthusiasm of users and spectators. Military architecture often has no aesthetic value, at least since people stopped building castles. This can possibly be explained by the fact that armies function as temporary phenomena. Vehicles and weapons have a defined stability; bases and camps do not. Even battlefields are forgotten without monuments.
