Yeah, I'm pretty sure the Space Force right now would be mostly satellites, which are already in military use, and space drones, which may be. But it does sort of open the door to normalizing the idea of military astronauts on military missions. This is not as trivial as it may sound: with non-commercial non-military manned spaceflight dying a slow death, the Space Force may be only government-sponsored manned exploration in the future.

Edit: I think if the idea of the Space Force really takes root, the treaties may not last much longer.
