You've got to love the "more stuff" that industry likes throwing at them. It's a great tool, dramatically increasing the range that the troops can sneak around. But it can't be their only vehicle, so it's more equipment to haul around or tie them down to a fixed base.

Can you see those SF guys tooling around Afghanistan on their 4 wheelers... pulling trailers that had electric dirt bikes stowed? Sure, once they're set up at a base they're rocking, but in the meantime it's a mess.
