The Resolute Trooper has a nice design and good toy but it can't beat the Alley Viper.
Orange isn't a good color for Urban combat but the Alley Viper wants you to see him. That Orange is like a traffic cone. When the Alley Vipers march into town they wanted people to see them as giant armed and orange colored freaks. Here are these guys walking to a gun fight in orange. These must be really good or have a death wish. Either way people are gonna think twice about confronting them.

I went Alley Viper since I've always loved the figure. Orange or not. But the Resolute figure is great. But why not both? I decided to call the Resolute troopers Cobra Marshalls. Sort of a cross between a Federal Marshall, a Bounty-Hunter and a Walker Texas Ranger! Their job is to hunt you down, and a little kidnapping on the side.

Because who cares if they're being shot at a distance. The whole point is to be seen and intimidate.
Also, in 1989, orange was a hip color. Very urban. Since then... well, it's still a hip color. Very urban.
All in all... I think we all know the Commander wasn't the most intelligent military leader around. He probably thought intimidation was the best strategy. He wasn't thinking about Lowlight on a rooftop somewhere.
