I actually think the jungle cutter should have been used more, although I can see the arguments against it.
I think if you're going to introduce us to some magnificent vehicle, it should be onscreen for more than a couple seconds before it gets blown up. Especially when it's as deadly as the jungle cutter. It's like this old film rule that a film teacher taught me: if you introduce a gun, it better go off. That's kind of how I feel about the jungle cutter. If you introduce it, it better do more than just blow up in the next shot.
