  1. "Cost and ease of production" is an interesting proposition. The details of production engineering varied from country to country.

The insane Swiss Furrer SMGs come to mind. Ain't nobody gonna have an easy time making those. But some other weapons have production considerations that are specific to their country of origin.

  7. Despite protestations to the contrary, America is aligned towards aggressive action against hostile nations and non-state actors. Attacks and damage to national morale will engender a response in order to restore the national feeling of tranquil military superiority. The same psychological tendency that leads to wars being fought to restore a national feeling of pride in military capabilities can also be harnessed to encourage greater morale by giving military personnel in all specialties a feeling of actualization from operational action and success. The psychology of combat troops is con
