That vehicle single handedly made that game absurd and stupid.

Yes we're gonna cross light years of distance to invade this planet with piece of poo poo hiluxes from orbit.

loving things didn't even have seatbelts.

It's the kind of thing that would make sense for rag tag insurgents or something. But made zero sense for the aesthetic or theme of the game except being reminiscent of Higgins boats.

It is perfectly emblematic of the ISA's arrogance and given Killzone's none-too-subtle criticism of neoliberal democratic powers engaging in ill advised foreign interventions, that dropship might as well be those piece of poo poo IED magnet jeeps that the UK was using before they switched to MRAPs transports.

Invading and militarily defeating a weaker opponent on your own terms is the easy part of ill advised foreign interventions, if losing a large percentage of the initial attack force is a concern... they don't happen (See: North Korea, China).

Unarmored vehicles worked perfectly fine during the invasion of Iraq; because they weren't out in front getting blown up for no reason... and they weren't IED magnets until they were driving down the same road(s) continuously for months / years.

But the plan for an interplanetary invasion being "Throw some dudes in an open topped flying truck with no seatbelts into the upper atmosphere, and hope for the best" isn't emblematic of 'arrogance' it's emblematic of 'cartoonishly stupid'

This is them invading the planet in the 2nd one, where it was introduced. I guess the invasion ships are lower than I remembered from 10 years ago.
