The only semi-coherent explaination I can think of is that the
scriptwriters/producers/etc were working on the Russian model: lots and
lots of mediocre infantry, and ignore casualties.
They left out the rest of the Russian Equation, though: lots and lots of
artillery and armour...Given the rest of the movie's tactical sillyness
napalm-armed tac fighters coming out to play ONCE; no AFVs, no fire
support, etc etc, I think we can just file SST under "Horrible Movies
Shouldn't Have Been Made". It's got a lot of company in that category...
