What weapons/vehicles/units/etc. have the coolest names?
Tsar Bomba.

Best name for best weapon.
Why don't I have a NATO codename? Is it because Fagot is already taken?
The Afghanies used to call the SABERs/the TOW missiles themselves "the finger of Allah."

All American helicopters. Native American tribes sound badass.
Also known as kuzkas mother
That's hardcore. Let's get more of the names our adversaries gives us/our weapons.
Stinger missile
Fa18 super hornet
Reaper UAV
Little boy/fat man
B52 (just sounds cool)
I just woke so my brain is a little slow
Don't forget the Dragon. Puff the magic dragon.
Coolest name for the ugliest piece of equipment
>Kiowa Warrior
We call it "pokemon" here

thats pretty cool isnt it
That's the only one with an especially awesome name.
Also Little Bird
Assault rifle 15
The Californians (especially the Berkley area ones) like to call us baby killers. Too bad we're not allowed to hold up to the "Domestic" portion of our "Defending all enemies to the constitution foreign and domestic" pledge.

Old Royal Navy ships.

>Erebus-class monitor HMS Terror
>HMS Dreadnought
>HMS Iron Duke
>HMS Vengeance (currently an SLBM, even better)
>Revenge-class battleship

The French also get an honourable mention for the Charles Martel and Charlemagne, both of which look awesome.
I thought the French named the Royal Navy ships. The British just captured them.
that thing looks like what would happen if a Virginia class sub and a Indiana class battleship fucked
That was only until about 1876.

After that, the French ships were kind of shit compared to the British ones, so they stopped bothering to capture them.

Yeah, that one kinda came outta nowhere.
The Brits definitely know how to name ships. The US doesn't have cool names for its ships anymore, except for Ohio-class subs. I like capital ships named after the states.

I used to hang with a bunch of naval history geeks who played this pencil and paper game called Wooden Ships & Iron Men, and I would piss them off by giving my ships silly names. HMS Inflection, HMS Dubious, HMS Doubtful... like that.

This is possibly the greatest crime in US history.

>In a rather blunt expression, Rickover is said to have summed up the reason he was changing the long standing tradition: "Fish don't vote!"

Because of fucking politicians we no longer have cool names for vessels outside of the current Tico class cruisers (named for battles) and Boomers (though I like the idea of them being named after dead presidents)

Just love the name of some Brit planes especially the Supermarine Spiteful


Always thought this would be an awesome name for a large, powerful surface warship. Too bad the US Navy has insisted on such a boring naming scheme for its ships ever since the early Cold War.
wipe something to brink of extinction, name warmachines after them to honor their memory.
so american, so hypocritical, so american
>SS-18 " Satan
The Russian name for it is pretty badass also
War Chief

Eh, UNSC Warface sounds better.
Mi-28s NATO codename.

>it's "Havoc", in case you didn't know
Wait since when do they do that?
I mean the more recent start all with C alright (Challenger, Chieftain, Crusader etc.) But What about the Matilda then?

not a weapon, but my favorite name for a military thing was one of the 2 word codewords for the ISA, "Cemetery Wind"
Vystrel Border Patrol Truck
Krepost (Triumf or Triumfator-M)

Russian names are sounding a little more European than Russian.
I saw what you did there
And then NATO has to name the latest one 'Sizzler' wtf
>Because of fucking politicians we no longer have cool names for vessels

This. It would be much better if we named Carriers after Naval Flag Officers. Although I would totally get Jimmy Carter for a nuclear sub name.

>tfw no USS Halsey or Spruance

my sides!
>be almost wiped out by superior conquerors
>Few hundred years later they start naming their most dangerous military shit after our tribes
>I'm fine with this

Seriously, ask them.
