Forget it. I wanted discussion, not "you're wrong".

I actually want to take a moment and thank those who saw the post and didn't think "let's prove him wrong!" sorry that wasn't the point. the point was to think of things that are weak in their respective universes and pit them against something strong in another. So to those who did just that, thank you, you're awesome.

Times those 10 Krogan by a million and they might stand a chance of beating Russia.

Modern Russia has hundreds of nukes. I don't think Krogan are nuke-proof. And you better believe that if Russia is being invaded by a hostile alien force, those nukes will get used.

Now, if those ten Krogan weren't armed, they might be able to take on an entire Roman Legion and win.

10 Krogan would literally be torn apart by heavy artillery. If they were that dangerous, then they would be facing the full force of Russia's army.

Surround them with attack helicopters, aerial bombings from jets, and a wall of tanks, and they would be lucky to fire a single shot.

Put them up against a Civil War era army, and they might stand a chance in that scenario.

Well make these 10 Krogans 10 Haluter from Perry Rhodan and I take your bet!

I say that the squad we see in Aliens with their standard equipment would take Marye's Heights during the Battle of Fredericksburg. Their mighty fine APC is too fast to reliably target with grey arty and the nerve gas Vasquez mentioned will quickly render the greys out of commission.

A bit of info about Marye's Heights

Or, name any of the five beaches of the Normandy landings. The Colonial Marines will take it and destroy the pillboxes without a single casualty. Their Cheyenne dropship will be the trump card here with nose-mounted machine gun and 44 missiles.

I feel like bringing a 22nd century dropship to WW2 is a bit cheating... XD

We got discussion, and we discussed why your scenario wouldn't work out. I even gave an alternative scenario involving 10 Krogan.

I don't know what you want me to say when I see big flaws there. If you said 10,000 Krogan, then maybe we have something.

10,000 krogan with tonka(LOL thats what i call em) trucks would be a good match for most of earths modern day militaries (USA would win with just sheer numbers), however I feel they would still get wrecked by aircraft and we haven't seen any krogan aircraft in the games

That, and and the Mass Effect militaries don't have an answer for arty of any kind (towed or howitzer).
