Re: I've had my share.

Yep - that's why I stopped short on the missiles after a moment's thought. I could get away with that inaccuracy in most places, but I knew it wouldn't fly here!

Oddly, I was describing the operation of TOW missiles to my son about a week ago. I remember reading about the MD500 helicopter with a targeting package mounted on the rotor hub so they could fire from a position of (some) concealment. It was a big ball on top, to my recollection, but I'm buggered if I can find it again these days.
