The world keeps getting stranger and stranger. Someone has come up with a "protest rocket". It's designed to deliver a payload of propaganda, SuperWeeds, etc....

Just wait until someone mistakes it for a SAM or MANPAD....

Note the "fetching" model it's displayed with...  Smile

Remember that scene from M.A.S.H. when Hawk Eye Pierce and McIntyre try to disarm a projectile that fell in the middle of the hospital, only to find out it was a US "propaganda rocket" filled with pamphlets fired in the wrong direction?  bigthumbsup 

No plane, no gain.

I couldn't get the link to work but Guys, militaries have had propaganda bombs since the first world war.

It ain't anything new, other then the way to get it to the targeted audience.

Quoting L-188 (Reply 2):

It's new for protestors and the SuperWeed payload is certainly a new twist on protesting.....

Per the link, SuperWeeds are genetically modified, herbicide resistant weeds targeted at genetically modified crops... I don't know if they really exist though.... kind of sounds like the guy has been smokin' what he's been growin'  Smile

They sound criminal at best if they're as described...

At the altitudes described by the manufacturer, I hope they don't fire them without knowing full and well that aircraft aren't in the area.
