I would doubt there is a way to make such an assessment accurately, short of actual battlefield testing. Adrenalin may very well not affect men and women equally, and I believe men have a greater stamina under its influence. Biologists have known for a long time that men have more muscular strength, more red blood cells, greater lung capacity, etc. Why is the military so ignorant of these things?

Furthermore, I think communication and understanding under fire would be something worth adding to the study. Do women have the same intuition and ability to make judgment calls as their male counterparts in a combat situation? Will the male soldiers be able to predict well enough the reactions of their female counterparts?
