  • FV1620 Humber Hornet. A heavily modified Pig fitted with a Malkara anti-tank missile system specifically for airborne forces. Oh so very 1960s. 'I only told you to blow the bloody doors off!' as they say.
  • SpamF-18 Hornet fighter/attacker flown by naval aviators (they dont like to be called pilots for some reason!) off of spam carriers. Replaced the F-14 Tomcat and are thus hated by everyone who got a stiffy during the flying sequences in Top Gun.
  • Large, black and yellow, flying insect the size of a small dog and armed with WW1 bayonet. Has exactly the same demeanor and attitude as a RSM with toothache and piles.
