I can carry a s***load of ammo on a bike...
but even then, up close you ever tried to
shoot somebody at close range with an uzi
on your bike... The navy had this idea for
a missile boat, that showed up with its 1000
cruise missiles, destroyed everything that
it could, and went home... to relaod another
Billion dollars in missiles. The problem was
NOT the cost, but this One trick pony didn't
have defenses say against submarines, etc...
It was too one dimensional, or mission specific.
