garth Posted February 13, 2001 Share Posted February 13, 2001 Its called deductive reasoning thufir.All the evidence points to no tanks, you cannot continue to base the argument for them because you believe Dune is flawed. It simply doesnt hold water.1.) The imperium is anti-technical to begin with2.) Arrakis is a very harsh place on machinery, including sandstorms and sandworms among other things.3.) Shields nullify their armament4.) Tanks cant be used in the open desert because of the worms, sand, etc.5.) The only other alternative is for them to fight on rock: unfortunately for tanks however, thats where 99.9% of the shields are used, and as previously mentioned they nullify their armament.Let's move on and start thinking of infantry units :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
