          We're talking about the in-universe APC, which has variable clearance and adjustable suspension.

    It's probably strictly designed for roads to oppress Colonial Liberation Front folks. It's wheels both turn so it's obviously meant for tight urban environments and it's low profile makes it slightly harder to hit. Also works as a barricade cause you can't crawl under it.

            Armed Battle Androids would completely beat the the shit out of Xenomorphs as a weapon so hard it isn't even funny, they basically negate the few advantages or specific threats the morphs have towards conventional soldiers.

            Wanting to make the aliens into 'living weapons' is so retarded, any threat they could actually defeat would be less of a hassle to deal with than cleaning up the resulting environmental hazard you are left with in the result.

              Assuming you're dealing with synths the way they're depicted in movies and games then Aliens have the precisely same advantages as over humans, namely being stronger, sneakier, disposable and more patient. Aliens thrive in hard to reach areas which are more accessible to humans than to androids (the way they're usually depicted).
              >Humans aren't particularly durable to acid blood and sharp bits of aliens (or gunfire for that matter)
              Cue Bishop getting ripped in half. Them being more durable than humans doesn't mean resistant to xenos.
              Besides the only reason why the human Sulaco crew got trashed is because they walked into a de facto ambush with a severe handicap in firepower, assuming a completely different foe.

              I figure a big part of it is that technically speaking, a xenomorph is far cheaper if your plan to control them doesn't go wrong (it always does). All you need is warm bodies to make more, and depending on your morals you can get those for quite cheap.

              Nah xenos are the perfect “fuck you” bio weapon. Unless a Hive on a planet and in a year everyone will be dead. On a military installation, a couple days. They can survive in horrendous conditions so they’re just very utilitarian and self-sustaining. Very good weapons if controlled.

          Fireteam expands on this a bit, combat androids exist, but they are strictly drawn from what are called low sapient product lines. They are just self aware enough to be able to fill in for a human marine should there not be enough organics to fill out a fire team. The Bishop style ones tend to stay on the ship or in secured areas, because they are a significantly greater investment than the low sapient models.

                That's what made them so good though, they were all wacky "what ifs" with radically different tones, themes and art styles, they took a bog standard sci fi setting and went crazy with it with no creative limitations and that's why so many are memorable even if they don't jive with the movies so much. Shit like Berserker, Labyrinth and the whole Nightmare Assylum series are fucking kino, and then you have Mondo the hunter and what not.
