    Just curious since there is a size difference on the ornaments as far as the medallions used.

    In regards to LarrBeard's comment towards the 25mm cannon switch;

    Just a little bit of worthless knowledge I can share. Military weapons systems are evolving with the times. We are going away from the aircraft style of joystick controllers with the gun selector and trigger, and are now using an Xbox video game controller to aid in the familiarity for the younger soldiers.

    I like the line lock trigger button, and the location you have it. Well thought out in my opinion.

    That is going to be a nice ride with all that insulation and padding inside.
