I know, it wasn't pointed at the poster. The meaning no offense was incase of Americans that agree with that.

Why would you not want to offend people who consider you to be morally equivalent to a terrorist for failing to support their aims?

It was just to be polite. Although you do have a point, I just never thought of it that way.

I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

He might be charging to scatter the enemy.

Though I admit you are right.

Just so this admission doesn't disappear. They come so infrequently. And twice on one page is unbelievable.

The government is not, as a rule, good at tight control of anything. But seriously, from factory to shipping to warehouse to more shipping to some supply depot to yet more shipping to the point I am trying to make, you don't think there would be a few suits siphoned off or just plain misplaced here and there?

—Alorael, who could also see the suits being made for private use. The inventor has no real vested interest in making them available exclusively to military personnel. Unless the contract stipulates government use only, he's got nothing to lose by making and selling impressive armored suits to perfectly
legitimate buyers.

Considering the amount of military equipment that makes it to the street, there are enough people in the military supply chain going into business for themselves with the government inventory. Besides once the general idea is known, there will always be people willing to make knockoff copies that will be good enough for criminals. If there is demand for them, then they will appear.

I still don't see what's so wrong about the original point. Canada is, I believe, largely not a desert. Large parts of where the US military is likely to remain bogged down indefinitely are deserts, and they are hot deserts. Overheating is a problem.

Then again, overheating is a problem in any armor, current armor included.

—Alorael, who has another reason not to be a soldier. Sensitivity to temperature can go after moral objections, asthma, and a criminal history.

Criminal history isn't a problem in today's army. They'll consider your sniping skill a plus and ignore that little skribbane problem. After all they are taking skinheads and training them so they can cause more trouble when they get out.

I've come to the conclusion that taking people too seriously here is a mark of the newbie. By this definition the majority of the forum are newbies, but I'm ok with that.

In other news, a fully operational mounted ADS was tested yesterday.

Now there is a high tech way of giving a hot foot.
