REALITY CHECK PEOPLE:
It costs what, 60 grande to train a 'normal' infantryman? Probably another 10 or more to go through each of the secondary schools that qualify you
for elite forces training? And at least a couple years worth of grunt work out of your hide before they let you /try to apply/?
And how long is that training itself? 18 months?
Figure 150 grande and 4 years. AT LEAST.
Now ask yourself.
Can Delta leap up a vertical wall? If so, why the ropes?
Can Delta run faster than a normal man, say 25-27mph for 2 minutes? Why the helo or the jeep?
Can Delta carry more while maintaining equal agility? Why are they so easy to kill with snipers?
Can Delta use their minds ANY MORE THAN the situation demands to survive in? If so why are they entering into a battle won and lost by 14 year old
teenagers fighting on their own turf while hopped up on khat and carrying a 500 dollar weapon firing 23 cent bullets at 700spm?
If I wanted super soldiers, I would go the opposite route from that of a perceptual 'elite forces' (limited total count, completely exposed in
Instead I would want an instant-standup army that was cheap and could be 'trained' to full competency _and no more_ in days or even hours.
In essence, I would want droids like you see being fabricated in the facility on Geonosis.
Four per second at the flick of a switch and every single one completely compatible as an organ donor with every other and 'nothing too critical to
lose' (skull, torso, whatever).
