Well, the terrorists in Afghanistan and Iraq are no match for the military on paper. They're not as well trained. Not as well armed. But they keep hanging around.
I wouldn't be shocked if one of them has a gunship or something, but the military is going to have better air support. I wouldn't be shocked if one of these militias has an older tank. Beyond that they probably have no more armor than a tripped out Humvee. I am almost certain that when it comes to hand weapons they've got everything from handguns to RPGs stashed away somewhere.
