well, that's the technical reason, but I think they did it more for the art
purposes than anything else. The mono-eye looks kinda weird, so it fits
pretty well with the "bad guys," but the two eyes or the visor look more
idunno... expected... so it's on the "good guys." Tho, it does make you
wonder: if the phased array is superior, how come all these GMs keep getting
blown up? Doesn't that cost some serious cash?

most major portions of the world, are in positions of extreme power and are
breeding at an alarming rate. Honestly, it frightens the willies out of me."
