Sure, it´s nice when it works and you jsut have to press a button.

I wouldn't know if that's all you do.

I am only 16.

We are fairly good though. Ever heard of the G6? It fires a shell 40km. We also were the first to use encrypted radios.

I'll do some more rooting around...

Yes, I know about the G6, it´s one hell of a system.

And it looks really cool to :-)

Yes, but wasn´t the G6 system developed byt his canadian artillery-engineer Bull, who later was assasinated by the Iraqi´s (even if personally believes that it was Mossad...)

It´s a bit more work than just pushing a button, but you get the idea.
