In case you've ever mashed the weapons release on a heater and wondered why your shot missed.

Interesting, but wouldn't it be more efficient if they actually used electronics rather than little green martians?

Only in the Navy would they dare to use little green men. The Air Force used electronics and look at how that turned out.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AIM-4_Falcon

Colonel Olds became exasperated with the Falcon's poor combat performance. He ordered his entire fighter wing to rewire the F-4Ds to carry more reliable AIM-9 Sidewinders. Although it was an unauthorized field modification, the entire air force eventually followed his example. An effort to address the limitations of AIM-4D led to the development in 1970 of the XAIM-4H, which had a laser proximity fuze, new warhead, and better maneuverability. It was cancelled the following year without entering service.

Pretty sure this has been posted here already. Funny nonetheless though.

Funny, was only just posting a reference to the Falcon elsewhere earlier today. And also this one. Much more up your street than the Falcon, Vampyre. Enjoy... (?)
