Forget "Patriot", forget "Iron Dome", I give you "Iron Willy"......

........Franonia's new controversial air defence system!

To keep the skies safe over Franonia we have accepted this generous gift from another nation of the latest in air defence/eradication........

15mm all metal from GZG, little feckers to put together but that could be just me?

Had some resin tents and these are for operations and support staff, plus a 15mm figure to give an idea of scale.......





The 15mm US figure representing scale in no way represents the donating nation..........

  7. "Iron willy"? Sounds like the sort of instruction a dominatrix would give to one of her masochist slaves! ;)

    We'll believe you that these are for AA defence and *not* for first strike against Rayonia :)

  12. Wow, that's awesome! Birds, planes, and small neighboring planets will all tremble before you!

  13. The Donating Nation has been generous indeed. Air defence I think not.... that would imply that Rayonia had more than hot air balloons, which "Postie Defense journal weekly" confirms they do not!

    1. Bloody false propaganda, he's being financed by North Korea!

    2. If you keep up this arms race Clintistan may well need to build up forces to protect our own borders! This level of escalation jeopardises peace in the whole area! As an ally I ask you for restraint!

      Delete
    3. Clintistan is a good ally of Franonia but the insulting rhetoric from Rayonia is hard to ignore!

  22. Well I feel sorry for the idiot that attempts an aerial assault on Franonia.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Now those are some big beauties! May they serve Franonia well!

  24. You've gotta keep those skies clear for O'Leary Air as we are the primary supplier of beer and strippers for Franonia. And don't forget, I'm talking to Putin about getting you some weapons grade plutonium. He thinks I'm cute, so I'm pretty sure it's a done deal :0)

    1. No one cuter Anne, listen I need to add to the regular order, 400 boxes of TK red lemonade, 2000 boxes of King and Tayto crisps! Let me know what Putin says cailin!

    2. You got is big guy-we've removed all the seats to make room for your supplies. I'm having dinner with Putin tomorrow night at our Moscow branch of Shenanigan's Pub. Pretty sure we'll finalize the deal then.

  27. Very impressive, but how does it compare to the rival Phat Dhong delivery system?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Let the fighting begin! I'll remain neutral so as not to upset either side...great job, Fran!
