I wonder how that thing would do in the mountains of the Karengal. No, seriously: I really do wonder that. The US military has had a hell of a time in that valley. The terrain really equalized the conflict between a high tech army and low-tech insurgents (see: War, Junger). The sci-fi lovin’ part of my brain wants to think that a mech would kick ass. The rest of my brain thinks it would be a beautiful, expensive target for an RPG. Maybe it’s both (like helicopters).
