<to Labtrash, when I was in (1980-1993) they were phasing out the M101A1 105mm and phasing in the M198 155mm towed, which is what we had in Desert Storm; they also had the 8-inch self-propelleds but I don't know if any of those made it to Saudi; I was USMC artillery FDC>

irony Black Adder reference

Quote:
"Black Adder the Third: Amy and Amiability (#1.5)" (1987)
Blackadder: Baldrick, have you no idea what "irony" is?
Baldrick: Yes, it's like "goldy" and "bronzy" only it's made out of iron.
