Default Amazon Lightning Deal; Tomohawk Cruise missile

Get yours now, have it dropped shipped anywhere

The US Navy Tomahawk SLCM Cruise Missile is the "weapon of choice" for a wide variety of military operations and is able to be launched from ship or submarine. The Quest Tomahawk Cruise Missile rocket is an eye-catching reproduction which features a unique boat-tail construction and "air scoop" with flights up to 800 feet. This rocket is a "must have" for any serious military model enthusiast.

Santa, If you're listening don't believe my wife. I have been good this year and that would look great in my mancave. Brings back some memories. Was doing work for a manufacturer during Gulf War 1 when they threw hundreds in at over a $1m a pop. A production run was delayed until a new vendor was certified because a $$$ crunching peckerhead had sourced an electronics component from a Swiss vendor that would not ship because they were 'neutral'. How's that for Thanx. Wasn't for people from my Dad's generation they would have been speaking German and doing a goosestepping salute today.

Ha ha ha. Very good. Very clever.

Most people know that the Swiss speak German but not many know that the Swiss army gave up the goose step in 1946, shortly after Germany's defeat in World War II.

Well done.

Actually, the Swiss speak 4 languages, at least on the official level. German dominates, but French and Italian are very prevalent, and some variant of Romansch/latin is common on the eastern border area.


I wonder if could get some guts for one of these things? Maybe at warheads r us??????????
