    When you need Nancy to backstop you point, your point is in error.

    Equipment-wise, not a lot of difference. Both types of units use armored vehicles...Abrams, Bradleys, etc. They generally have different missions, though that can overlap, as well.

    Cavalry is normally tasked with quickly taking an objective. Armor is normally tasked with holding an objective. Operations in the ME have changed that a great deal and both types of units will do either task.


    btw, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment was located at Ft. Carson for a while but has since moved to Ft. Hood. They were a "heavy" Regiment and were deployed in the Gulf War and the Iraq War. Some of their units have been converted to "Stryker" units and they use these:

    Cavalry performs the traditional cavalry role: screen, recon, block, hold. Armor is basically a battering ram, whether as a spearhead, flank attack, or rear gaurd.

    Cavalry is indirect support. Armor is both direct and indirect support, because armored units can also perform a cavalry mission.

    When I play video games, those are one of my favorite vehicles. Some of them are amphibious. I bet the real thing is even cooler.

    I'm a gigantic opponent of pneumatic tires on a combat fighting vehicle.

    Ive wondered about that. Im sure they are sturdy, but they are still tires.
    I'd guess they are more susceptible to damage but are also lighter and aid (some) mobility which would be a plus.

    Are they crap?
