Grampa Bill comments:
    And then there's the "Hell Fire" missile. I suspect that translates pretty
well into most modern cultures! Among my favorites for aircraft are the F-14 "Tom
Cat" (Just pure mean and ready for a fight! "Any time, Saddam baby, any time!)
and the B-70 "Valkyrie," named for the Norse War Maidens.
Love y'all,
