PyCon 2010: Using Python to Model Real-World Battlefield Scenarios: "Python’s API, because of its dynamic and interpreted nature, allows for rapid prototyping of combat field behaviors and simulations. In this way it makes it possible to get information to the decision-makers faster. Python can do, from a scripting standpoint, things other languages can’t to include, but not limited to: passing functions as arguments, functional programming, and execution of strings as code (this is generally discouraged in the Python community, but when you need it, it’s a lifesaver)."
