Absolutely. Battling on different terrain is part of the adventure:
grass, weeds, rocks, woods, snow, sand, gravel ... if you can't handle
it, you deserve to get destroyed.

Although it sounds like something fun, I doubt if many people will take
the time to make up such stuff, haul it to the battlefield and set it
up. I suspect that GIs will be strategically placed behind trees,
bushes, rocks and other natural defensive positions.
But, I'll gladly volunteer my Tiger to roll over any infantry position

*If* speed unbalances the game, we can figure out a way to re-balance
it. Based on current experiments with Mike's AC, although it is
faster, I don't think it is fast enough to avoid gun fire all the time.
Besides, it eventually has to shoot at the opposition itself and if it
can hit something, then it can be hit. Personally, I think that it
will be harder for any vehicle to move around the battlefield without
getting hit. We'll all find out after the first few battles.

That's why we went with the 3 ft rule, because now you can build
something truly unique and still be competitive.
