policy now and in the future. The JBPDS is designed to meet the environmental, shock, and vibration profiles of its intended platforms, as well as service reliability.

Ball call: The carrier pilot's radio call to the LSO on final approach, as he rolls into the "groove" and sights the call includes the aircraft's callsign, type, and fuel state, which the Arresting Gear Officer will use to set the gear's braking power. For example, "ThunderHornet, Ball, State Three Point Five" – meaning the aircraft's an F/A (a "Hornet") of the squadron.

During WWII both sides operated a variety of light utility aircraft. The planes themselves were fairly simple and generic but also very versatile.

The Boom Gun also features a coaxial under-barrel ion blaster(1, ft range, 4d6 MD per blast, or 2d6 MD to a 15 ft wide area in ‘spray’ mode) Recently the Tinkers of the Silvermoons offered Danten the opportunity to test a modified PS-PAH ‘Nahar’ Power Armor Extension System, a knockoff of the Kittani Equestrian Armor.

In addition to the USAF refueling boom, the KC's hose and drogue system allows refueling of U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and most NATO allied aircraft. This gives the KC the ability to refuel US and other NATO aircraft, all in one mission.
