So, this country has a caste system. There are some nobles on top, administrators/etc. towards the middle, military/enforcers further down, and the peasant caste on the bottom.
Some of these peasants decide to rebel, because, frankly, caste systems aren't really good for things like "self-determination" or "rights". They form a Taliban-style insurgency in this country's mountains, which are, for all intents and purposes, the Catskills by a different name.
The nobility, of course, believe that these peasants have overstepped their place in life, but they don't really want to actually "solve" the problem; having a constantly-present but weak insurgent force enables them to prove that they're "doing something about it", even if they're not actually crushing the insurgency, since it brings them fame, public recognition, and privileges from the old, semi-senile top caste member/ruler who thinks that their underlings are actually saving the place.
This country has an incredibly strong history in regards to knights/elite noble warriors. To that end, a popular method for nobles to prove that they're doing something about the insurrection is to hop in a one-crew armored fighting vehicle and head off into the mountains where the insurrection makes its home; the image they're trying to project is a modern knight, except one which rides a horse of steel rather than of sinew.
Such vehicles are personalized and highly unique designs; some examples:
An M3 Bradley-esque tracked vehicle armed with a 20mm cannon and 32 127mm surface-to-surface rockets somewhat similar in design to the Zuni aircraft rocket. Armored all-round in 20 millimeters of steel/7017 aluminum. Road speed 100 kph, overland speed 60 kph.
A 12-foot-tall quadrupedal mecha with four .50-caliber machine guns mounted in a triple remotely controlled weapons station, and an automatic 40mm grenade launcher. Speed in all circumstances is 40 kph. 50mm RHA all-round.
A "tumbleweed tank"-type vehicle with a hyper-compact energy source reverse-engineered from alien technology found in a perpetual hurricane; said energy source powers a 100-kilowatt-per-shot directed energy weapon. Armored with 35 millimeters of composite armor all-round. Road speed 140 kph, overland speed 50 kph.
None of them are very practical, but that's not the point; they're flashy, and the more expensive/awesome one is the better, since they're a display of wealth by the nobility manning them.
However, that impracticality means that they generally can't do the job on their own (seriously, it's one unit, it can't do much), and while the "noble modern knight destroying the filthy terrorists" is what's seen on the propaganda on television, in actuality most of the combat is done by a retinue of support vehicles and personnel, who are also responsible for most of the kill count figures that are cited on TV.
The question: what would a battalion-sized counter-insurgency armed force and its support structure look like if it was:
- (a) entirely privately funded and operated by someone with the net worth relative to ~$10 billion nowadays
- (b) structured around the glorification of a single noble and the exotic-but-impractical war machine they pilot?
Don't cite that alien technology I mentioned - the nobles hoard it for themselves.
