This is a hoot. Take a look at the link and the first comment. It reads exactly like the usual comments to military blog sites discussing the incredible damage budget cuts and blindfolds will do to our military by short-sighted non-thinking anti-myrmidons. Pesky anti-myrmidons.
you even served with the Imperial forces? Sure it's easy to take
potshots from your military blog in some no-name star system while the
fleet and its legions fight the rebel insurgents, but combined
space/air/ground operations are a lot messier than any infographic could
Even with the Empire's full spectrum dominance of the battlespace,
you can't just leverage fleet assets which are optimized for
ship-to-ship combat into a large scale ground invasion force. A Star
Destroyer might have more firepower than the entire militaries of less
advanced worlds but you still need a proper ground assault ship to
support infantry landings.
Unfortunately, the do-nothing blowhards in Coruscant couldn't get
funding for the promising alternative designs from Sienar Fleet Systems
and we ended up (as usual) with Kuat Drive Yards' overpriced, overdue,
and underperforming AT-AT mess.
