Re: Interesting hypothetical...

If the marines saw them coming far enough to use their firepower
effectively, they'd win hands down.

If the raptors dropped in without warning for hand-to-hand combat, I'd bet
on them.

Why? The raptors are only equipped for hand-to-hand fighting, but soldiers
do battle at greater distance. Machine guns could wipe out the raptors 50
feet away, but they are useless a foot away when there are friendly troops
in the potential line of fire.
