Re: Firepower of the human military
Really there is no point to sending infantry to engage the Decepticons 99% of the time, or at least with anti-personnel weapons. Most of them are too large and armored for infantry equipment like assault rifles (designed to destroy humans) for the infantryman to do much damage. They really should have generally been using tanks and close air support (CAS) aircraft, and any infantry should have been using anti-materiel equipment like .50 cal machine guns and sniper rifles and antitank and antiaircraft missiles against the Decepticons. Then again, battles might be over in five minutes if that happened.
