The adage "Time spent in reconnaissance is seldom wasted" has been variously attributed to Field Marshal Erwin Rommel and John Marsden in Tomorrow, When the War Began.
Regardless of who said it first, it's an eternal truth (and not just in warfare). This T-Rex Technical is far outside the wire practicing that very phrase, Chain Gun at the ready.
Because a Tyrannosaur is way fucking cooler than a HiLux, though the mileage is a lot worse.
Of course, reconnaissance is by no means always mounted, nor do mounted units only perform reconnaissance. This has been true since long before the advent of the stirrup or the spyglass.
"The only true rule for cavalry is to follow the enemy as long as he retreats. Let Col. Ashby's proverbial daring take him where it will. He may take his Tyrants to Bull Run or all the way to Washington should it please him to do so." Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson, Battle of Hopewell Gap, 1864
"Well and I am sorry for Marshal de Saint-Arnaud, but he retains his other limbs, and one must wonder what he was thinking, waving is arms in such fashion when Scarlett's ceolurosaurian theropods were trying to help take Malakoff Hill." FitzRoy Somerset, 1st Baron Raglan, 1855

Girth, of course, is a matter of personal preference...which is getting to be a pretty old joke now that we've added several of these shirts.
