The other half of the phrase, I believe is: Not with the army you want to have..
Quite realistic, since a whole lot of things do not work or work differently, from weapons to logistics.

Reminds me a bit of Congressional hearings after Gulf of Sidra episode in 1989, an inquest on Sidewinder failure to track initially. Pilots response was: Sir, they are called missiles and not hittiles.
