Forgive me for possibly side tracking this thread, but I can't help wonder what the highest number used on military hardware might have been................Hmm

Okay, okay! ABCs only when we get to 500!!! Zip it!

Biggest number- BFG 9000 is the highest that comes to mind....

From an old PC game called DOOM- "Big Freakin' Gun" - 9000 - one shot kills pretty much every enemy on the screen. 

Seriously the biggest number I can think of off the top of my head is the Mirage 2000. 

PS: Thanks SG, looks like we posted at the same time- the movie was very loosely based off the game. As much as you can base any movie off a game that involved no plot beyond shooting an endless stream of monsters.

Incorrigible! Aaron is already saying that once 500 is reached, it should be to infinity and beyond!

And then, before I can board the chopper that will take me to Nome, an argument with Aaron over the use of bomb aimer as opposed to bombardier.

By the way, BFG-9000 FOR THE WIN!

Guess it depends if your American or British. US sites say Bombadier. British say Bomb Aimer. Which of course means the latter is correct. Big Smile
