    Hmm... I was gonna pick SFOD-D/CAG ("Delta Force") for myself, but in my personal case the 160th SOAR (A) ("Night Stalkers") might be more appropriate.

    I feel like Infantry is more fitting of EJ temperament, what with their being focused on a sort of "flooding" tactic and dependent on the same sort of constant balancing-control utilization that EJ functions work with. Elite units like Marines, Rangers, Seals, etc, which use fewer, more highly trained troops that play specialized roles, would be like the p sub EJs, having less overall impact and fewer numbers but a more specialized function (closer to IP "special ops").

    IMO EP is more akin to bombers/jets (land warfare blah blah blah), that are designed to strike single targets quickly with overwhelming force and then disappear, although j sub EPs might be more akin to armor/mobile artillery, having the single-target high striking power with less mobility and more armor (closer to the stationary artillery IJ temperament but still offensive in nature). RPGs could also apply here, I guess, for major P sub EPs; I suppose the mean would probably fall somewhere in the realm of a Humvee.

    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    In ancient battles, cavalry is the equivalent of tanks. However, cavalry was a last resort option, whereas tanks are the backbone of warfare nowadays, I think (at least in the video games!).

    In strategy/tactic games I always prefer a stealthy approach with concealable units, sabotage, fighting behind the frontlines, ect. I don't know all common strategies but this guerilla style seems to be pretty effective. I also like to wipe out massive firepower with small hit&run attacks. Besides that, my second choice would be fast and manoeuvrable units with limited firepower similar to a Blitzkrieg tactic.

    I like your typings, but I think IJ should be aircraft carriers.
