Superb! Doesn't it make you green with envy top see more striking power than most other countries in one place?

I see that the Seahawk pilot had been asleep at the briefing, though...

Yep, the Yanks beat us hands down every single time. But only when it comes to Quantity vs Quality....you can train a monkey to press a red button, which would explain a lot when it comes to Uncle Sam.

Perhaps they've finally found the location of that rogue Japanese whaler roaming the Pacific....

...especially when it comes to fusing large amounts of sand into glass. The first word many in the US military learn is "saturate".

Which is better than the French, who learn "capitulate".

Is that the one where the US aircraft carrier kept calling the unidentified vessel to get out of the way and, eventually, the vessel identified itself as a lighthouse

All time classic

A shame the guy on the right is out of formation. And who parked that Seahawk in the background? Would have looked even better with F-14's. Apart from that, not bad at all!
