How useful would dinosaurs or xenomorphs be in a modern war?

There are many movies where a barely sentient animal that only melee-attacks is presented as a potential superweapon but how useful would something like a JP dinosaur or a Xenomorph be in a real war?

        Because the people they were fighting had melee weapons also. There’s a reason when European armies had muskets you didn’t have attack dogs

    The dumbest part of Alien Covenant was how it showed that there's a version of the Xenomorph that can just kill you with a puff of smoke that follows you around.

    Why the frick do any of the other versions of the Xenomorphs even exist? Why does the puff of smoke even bother with the rest of the xenomorph life cycle since it obviously wouldn't need that to do its super weapon bullshit? It's not just a bad movie, it also kinda ruins the series villain.

      Because the puff of smoke is an evolution of the original liquid. There was no more higher lifeforms to change so it turned itself into a type of fungus to survive longer periods of dormency.

        Incorrect, the puff of smoke is all that's required to kill everybody. It's clearly a better weapon than an albino Xenomorph.

        The premise originally was that the Xenomorph has the lifecycle that it does because it serves an evolutionary function. It straight up doesn't anymore.

          The xenomorph wasn't the weapon, the goo was. In the books and extra lore before Ridley had to big brain vent about religion the engineers would drop eggs and the xenos were the bioweapons. However, they've now become a perfect oegeganism crafted/guided alon the excellerated evolutiomary process by Ridley's man-crush, Fassbender, because he got butthurt and went insane about being a souless machine that Weyalnd told "couldn't create, only serve". The goo is basically primordial ooze with the added flair of jumpstarting evolution.

      That seemed to just be a spore cloud, albeit it a smart-ish one.

      The spore pod was stepped on by someone or disturbed by vibration, then the spores are released and infect whatever is near.
      It's not motile but not mobile enough to hunt, it can only ambush.

      Alien Covenant had a lot of bullshit but I thought the spores were one of the least bullshit parts of it. A dormant phase of the xenomorph generating organism seems pretty reasonable.

        He thought he was Alex Mercer a scientist who found out his work was being used to create an illegal bioweapon and tried to expose it only to have his sample exposed during a shootout. He was wrong.

        The idea was that he had munched on so many ordinary people and seen what was inside them. Almost all zombie scenarios like most fiction are written by libtards and when things don't conform to their homosexual ideals they quickly become nihilistic. How many of writers of these fictional settings seem outright angry that hicks are blowing away the monsters easily without suffering any libtarded compunctions? What the Virus Mercer saw wasn't just a bunch of petty monsters which libtards paradoxically assume must be the case because everybody doesn't agree with their shitty opinions. He saw people doing what they could with what they had for what they believed in or loved, wrong or right. So he adopted that outlook. It's anti-nihilism.

        Also the disease was so fricked up it didn't require everyone to lose the functions of their neocortex to be a threat.

        And then he wants to mutate the world because something something, muh homie muddfricka. All that metaplot about other crazy mutant superbeings the government possessed that you'd get to fist fight in the sequel, nah nobody wants that. Who'd want a bunch of boss fights in the video game?

    Obviously useless. A gun is useful at all ranges including melee. Even the xenomorphs which are presented as ultimate killing machines that can somehow smash through steel bulkheads and survive being doused in molten lead and on optimal turf had an extremely poor kill ratio against a squad of crayon-eaters. What is anything biological supposed to against the full auto of an assault rifle or battle rifle except die or abuse plot armor? The only way melee animals could possibly pose a cost-efficient threat is if they were bulletproof or some other method of high durability. At that point we're looking at machines or magic.

      Some of the Alien comics explored the idea that the xenomorphs had basic physic sensitivity keyed to identifying fear in others. So something like running and hiding doesn't work cause you're still scared and it can figure out where you are. Not exactly the greatest magic power but I suppose it is a form of live intelligence gathering concerning whether you are vulnerable or not.

      Are you moronic? The idea that something biological could be bulletproof definitely doesn't need to assume magic or cybernetics. If we ever found spacefaring life it would necessarily be bulletproof to survive micrometeorites and radiation proof to survive cosmic rays. Life on earth already builds itself out of materials that could form bulletproof structures, like chitin, aramid, keratin or bone, it just doesn't build enough to be bulletproof because there were no pressures to make bulletproofing a successful evolutionary strategy (arguably until recently).

        It's funny because you don't know that the Xenomorphs are bullet proof by current standards. The second movie has them dying to bullets because the marines are using super advance futuristic ammunition or some shit. No, the horseshoe crab isn't making itself bulletproof to futuristic weapons. Xenomorph is still dead to guns.

                do you have a disability of some sort? just because *insert future BS high explosive armor penetrating round* works, does not mean "basically any steel core whatever will work". Modern AP ammo out of a full caliber rifle probably would work, if not the steel core stuff then the tungsten stuff, but thats just an opinion.

                >tldr pretty much consider xenos to be somewhere in the area of lvl 3+ to lvl 4+ full coverage

                The marine ammo makes them explode like balloons filled with battery acid. So I'd assume something hard enough with enough velocity will penetrate them. They are supposedly silicon based in part so assume their shells are something like silicon carbine mixed with polymers. the EHC is polyethylene based and can stop .30 fmj but not the steel core of a .30 round.

                >tldr pretty much consider xenos to be somewhere in the area of lvl 3+ to lvl 4+ full coverage
                So exactly what I said previously? Because high velocity .30 or .223 with a hard core goes through III+. but often not IV. Thus you agree with my original assessment.

          The pulse rifles they used were cool but I don't recall them having super powered rounds. They were just teched out 10mm rifles with a grenade launcher attachment. Most fantastical thing about them was how they jammed so much shit into the weapons system while keeping it relatively lightweight and stable enough so that even someone relatively untrained could use it effectively. Hell, Hicks fricked up a Xenomorph with a plain old 12 guage shotgun.

            The Pulse Rifle fired a 10mm diameter cartridge loaded with explosive bullets. It wasn't 10mm Auto. IIRC, it was caseless, so the things were probably using a .416 Rigby sized bullet and probably with a good bit more velocity with future gun recoil mitigation bullshit.

            Via shoving the barrel in its mouth. That's the important part. Extended Aliens lore says their exoskeleton is nearly impervious to pistol calibers, which doesn't conflict with anything in the movies.

                You'll keep arguing that the xenomorphs getting splattered by the rounds proves that there are factors beyond the stated specifications of the weapon that show it to be more powerful, hence today's small arms would be insufficient.

        I hate to break it to you but those structures apart from aramid (which is man-made so I don't know why you've included that) are terribly inefficient at blocking bullets and would have to be large and weighty to be bullet proof. At that point we're looking at large animals, which would just get completely wrecked by a combat vehicle of equivalent tonnage or size. Organics just fricking suck, it's just a fact of life.

        Nothing can be that size, move that fast, be bulletproof, be biologic, AND not have an incredibly insane energy requirement. As they exist it’s not really possible to grow to their size and reproduce as fast as they do with consuming the amount of food/energy they do. But I’ll ignore that because it’s lame and boring. An animal isn’t going to stop rifle rounds. Basic .223 55gr FMJ will punch straight through 1/4” steel without any issue. Even .22LR goes through a cows skull. Cows weigh well over 1000lbs. A xenomorph isn’t stopping bullets, or would be too big/heavy/slow/ energy intensive to be a threat

      The problem with xenomorphs is that they get loose and become an infestation. Yes, you can kill them pretty easily with guns, but they breed like flies and will destroy whole ecosystems in the process. By the time you even know you have an infestation, the plaet is already fricked.

    Oh yeah, I'm using this in a fantasy story. Oh ... you meant something like dinosaurs in real life? We can just use drones on the enemy, its much more efficient than raising animals for years only for them to die.

    JP dinosaurs would get fricked by a squad of infantry from just about any military. They only get out of hand in the first book and movie because Hammond was a homosexual and wouldn't let Muldoon have some real weapons. Note that the mercenaries in the second movie are successful until that son of a b***h Van Owen sabotages them. In 3 the mercs only brought a single rifle between the 3 of them which ends up screwing them while in the 2nd book nobody brings any weapons that are worth a frick.

    Probably as useful as a dog if you can train it, and less useful than a human male with a rifle.

    Utahraptors would make for excellent guard dogs if they were easy to domesticate and were capable of homeostasis.

    >JP dinosaur
    Pretty meh
    >Xenomorph
    Incredibly dangerous. Too effective, insomuch as once they get a foothold they'll be very hard to remove. Massive bombardment may clear the bulk of them but if even one manages to slip away, you're looking at doing it again and again and lord help you if they're deep underground. Clearing narrow spaces infested with those things would be a nightmare. It's not even the agility and strength its the pressurized corrosive blood. Movies undersell that shit, if it worked consistently fighting them up close is suicide. And they are sneeeeaky frickers.

    Not even sure why WeYu wants to weaponize them. Too messy. Only good for the scorchest of scorched earth

      Well the rice roaches do get killed in the number necessary to make the comparison apt.

      I think the worst of these moronic scenarios was "Reign of Fire". I mean dragons are cool and all but unless it is some teleporting, shapeshifting, magical 250 IQ Elder Wrym from DnD its not really going to do well against even a Mig17.

        Reign Of Fire is a pretty comfy movie, except for the part where they gloss over how dragons were good enough to wipe out thousands of F-15s, F-16s, F-18s etc from the sky and tens of thousands of tanks, but the dragon capital can fall to a couple dudes with a helicopter and a dream

    I still believe what makes xenomorphs dangerous, besides the difficulty in containing them in a densely populated area and their high adaptability, is the acid blood and their skill at moving around quickly and undetected in very tight spaces. I don't think they're armored enough to just power through a hail of gunfire but the way they stalk and hunt and pop up unexpectedly they don't need to. And if you get grabbed, it's game over. You'll wish you were dead.

    The Xenomorph is an alien biological wmd. You just drop a cannister of eggs on your desired target and all animal life gets killed by xenomorphs.

      Can someone shoot an elephant or a hippo with an RPG? For science? I'm tired of watching the monsters soak up rounds like it's nothing. At least the Xenos were shown being ripped apart by the pulse rifles and grenades.

      I love those little guys.

        You can shoot cows with RPGs in Cambodia for like $200. I couldn’t find a video now but I know I’ve seen it before somewhere.

        Hippos and elephants are obviously much larger but you get a general idea. If a cow gets mostly vaporized, a huge chunk of an elephant would be destroyed. It’s instant death regardless.

      Yeah, I thought terror drones were invincible too, then they got within range of a base and got obliterated instantly.

    What kind of stupid question is this? A man with a gun is unquestionably deadlier than T-rex equivalent or Xenomorph, if you're going ask me which one I'll rather face I'm going to choose the melee animal every time. The only reason these things are considered a threat in their franchises is because the protagonists are either unarmed or outnumbered.

    It's actually quite incredible, they deliberately put a completely unnecessary scene in the second movie where the marines complain about having to use outdated 20th century trash, and show it wrecking the Xenomorphs, yet spergs still can't get the hint.

    I think pretty effective. They would probably be stronger, faster have advanced sensory system systems like smell. Maybe even morphic resonance (like when you can tell someone is behind you). Not to mention weapons like claws and teeth.

    Now what if they were reptilians who had all the aforementioned plus ESP and technology. That would be scary.

    Why are people trying to argue xenos are bullet proof? Nothing in any of movies or extended universe shit I've read has tried to claim that. The only times they were shown to be able to soak sustained fire from small arm was when they were getting hit with rounds that have shit penetration like in alien isolation or the more armored ones like the queen or praetorians, but even they're supposed to go down to AP rounds.
