You can have your gazelle - gazelles might be fast, but can't carry much. I'd rather have an elephant which moves a bit slower, but can tow the heavy megapixel artillery.

Yeah consider wounded soldiers on an elephant, it can carry many soldiers but it's so slow (like D800)...all soldiers died on the way to the hospital, at least on the gazelle it can save one, two, three, or more soldiers .

Typical rapid-fire shooter - just spray in the general direction of the target and hope that one hits. Trouble is, it can't hit very hard. Just like an artillery piece towed by a gazelle

Gazelle it's so fast it can move swiftly, it doesn't care your artilery whatever you do it zigzags avoiding any bullets. Now...for your slow elephant or turtle there is no hope .

There's only one way to settle this argument. Vader, get on a gazelle...Shadow, get on an elephant...each carry a small machine gun and face-off!

Lucky to have a unit with no green hue LCD issue or lock up problems. So far so good.
