    in my game, I was just backfilling techs waiting for my final spaceship part to be completed.

    a couple turns later, an allied militaristic CS gifted me a GDR :eek:

    GDR are weaker then nukes. Just for fun I gifted 3 GDRs to a city state to test this while waiting on my last space ship part to finish. I then declared and dropped a nuke on the 3 gdrs. There were no more gdrs after that...

    I like to play modern starts...GDR seriously makes that much less fun.

    I guess they're no gundams, just like the samurai don't have those legendary swords that slice through reinforced metal.

    Actually metals in general struggle vs other well-engineered metal. Deadliest warrior threw a lot of things at the old spartan shields, and they were apparently well-made enough to survive pretty much any melee weapon the soldier was strong enough to parry, including things designed specifically to destroy shields :/. Chain mail isn't very good against stabbing weapons though, and blunt force trauma can do a lot when armor piercing isn't practical :p.
