So I've been thinking about what Equestrian soldiers would use for equipment. xD Unicorns can basically utilize anything you want them to, and Pegasi have a few options, but Earth Ponies are more limited. They can't really swing things around like a Pegasus can. Surely they're good for something, but I can't think of what. :P
