Never thought I'd see the words "derrière", and "Dark Angels" in the same sentence… I don't know whether to laugh or cry…

Hmmm, I havent seen or read mention of that anywhere, but it's quite a possibility. Would be a nice fight to read about though. I'm pretty sure there's a simulation or two about this scenario lying around somewhere on Macragge...

I think the Phalanx would destroy The Rock, but it'll be a very close fight. Phalanx was built for war, but The Rock is more of an improvisation of the remains of Caliban. Although the Archeotech weapons in The Rock might make a difference.
