Did anyone read the reports at the weekend about the (supposed) massive detterent effect of Warriors in Afghanistan (apologies if someone has raised it). I think it was in the Scotsman. The gist of it was that with a Warrior standing in a visible position commanding the ground the Talibs didn't even approach having had bad experiences before. Now you'd think that a cannon shell just couldn't be as effective as something bigger with a decent amount of explosive, but here's a thought. I went to a massive firepower demo years ago and of all the stuff fired Rarden was the most frightening. Really, really vicious and accurate. Maybe the "high velocity finger of God" effect knocks the stuffing out of people even if the actual lethality is lower?
