pr00ne , your post reminds me of a signal allegedly sent between the ship drivers of a couple of HM's war canoes during a Sea Wolf (I think it was) trial. The idea was that the missile was supposed to be effective against small, fast targets - so it was thought that a standard naval shell could be used as a suitable target.

So BANG went the gun, whereupon the Sea Wolf system acquired, tracked, launched and zapped the shell almost before it had left the barrel.

"Looks like we got your rocket!", signalled the driver of the ship which had fired the shell...
