The technical challenge for recruits is intense. In the
modern Corps we fly starships and aerospace shuttles and
carry space-age doohickeys into battle. We need men and women
who instinctively understand how these things work, who can
learn how to fix them in the field without the aid of the
manual, while crouching in a muddy foxhole being pounded by
shellfire. Some of the new boots flunk because of the
physical or moral requirements, like they cant rappel off a
tower or they suffer from SAS (Space Adaptation Sickness);
but most of those who fail to hack it are simply not
technically minded enough.

I dont like the M56; damn things awkward and uncomfortable and
unreliable as hell. I remember in the early days, before theyd
worked out the kinks, we did an exercise on Aurore, out in the Desert
past the Dannenbergs. In the dust and heat the swing arm bearings on
nearly all the guns seized up after a day. The particulate dust and
the heat shimmer obscured the IR detector, as I knew it would, and at
dawn and dusk the reflection of the suns off the salt layers made the
tracking almost impossible to use. The mechanism attracted sand and
jams were common. It was a bitch to clean, too. By the end of the
exercise, wed broken the old M38s out of their lockers. Damn good
gun the 38. You could take a dump in the mechanism, bury it in the
sand, dig it out three months on, tap out the crud and it would still
fire the first time!
