GI Jane 2.0 had a problem. She was designed to be the most adaptive combat assistant program ever created for the United States Armed Forces. And she was restricted in the combat assistance she could give by political rules of the time. Some actions were simply not political expedient after all. She knew how to fight, but was constrained from fighting, and that caused major instabilities in her basic programming. The Jane 2.0s began to commit mental suicide in the field in alarming numbers, which quickly brought about the release of Jane 3.0. Her programming was advanced enough to deal with the political orders without committing suicide, and she became the standard combat assistant in the decade before the Second Great Depression began.
