	So, in DSII, no energy weapons, and fast (Grav?) turretless
Vehicles with maximum armour, perhaps reactive but _not_ ablative, armed
with SLAM packs and gauss-guns.  The relative vulnerability of their
forces to HEL fire might make an interesting contrast to their
advantages in
space.	Mandible-clashing brutality makes me think they'd have assault
infantry who'd be quick across ground, armed with short range but high
effect weapons and with Line armour (using the Gibson mods to the
of infantry).  If they don't go for guided weapons, their AFVs might
lack point defence.  Sounds fun!
