Default What Quaritch could have done...

Mornin. Another little question of mine.
It's rather obvious that Quaritch can be described using the Na'vi term of skxawng. So, put yourself in his shoes, and give your thoughts.

Not literally though. His shoes stink.

So, what could Quaritch have done instead or with the preemptive attack?

Not much.


In my long boring hours, I've tried to come up with better strategies, but really, that was a lose lose scenario.

Bomber is slow, and vulnerable, I'd considered a high altitude attack, but then you've got no accuracy. If you were to start high and dive, the floating mountains would have been an issue.

The only thing I could see working would have been a decoy. However, Quarich wouldn't have know that the Na'vi forces knew about the bomber, and wouldn't have thought to have a second more visible groups draw off their attack.

In closing, the Na'vi ****ed the RDA up. And there is nothing the RDA could do about it.

Stood on the wall of Hellsgate and waved a white flag?

At that point he's already taken part in genocide. He could surrender or he could leave.

All I could suggest personally is a guided tactical missile. Of course, you'd need an expert at the remote. And they might not have those.

The Na'vi lost. They fought well but lost. Luckily for them Pandora has a biological supercomputer that can take control of the wildlife.

Might not work so well with those strong magnetic fields. Would have to be purely ballistic.

I count Eywa as part of the Na'vi's arsenal.


RDA had no access to real military equipment. They were using commandeered mine explosives as a heavy weapon.


If they had real equipment, I'd say a flight of fixed wing fighterbombers. They'd be able to maneuver the field at higher speed. Fortunately, they had none.

Maybe when they come back in 50 years with better technology.

Why would they be coming back?

UN's going to revoke their license. Award it to another company.

Remember, everyone has their price. Besides, the RDA is said to have massive military power.

Where is it said that?


An army of deadbeat mercs is hardly a "military".

I agree. 'But that's what it says in the sur-vi-val guide!' (dances around like an idiot)

Like I said.


Deadbeat mercs are not a military.
