We all want the Rockies to be like an Abrams tank:
This is an XM1 Abrams, the experimental model back in the late '70's. The Abrams tank is the main tank of the US Army and is a hell of a vehicle.
On the other hand, the Rockies are more like an Italian M 15/42 Medium Tank from World War II:
It looks good, but it's an Italian tank. You can't really expect much out of it.
