But what if they’re two humanoid targets of that size, Lt. Dapi? What’s your super-smart terrain following thingamajic going to do then, huh? Huh?
Uh…yes. So this concludes the long series of unsuccessful attacks on the kaiju by the JSDF. I had to give the naval forces their (literal) shot at it, and of course I had to wait until Lt. Dapi was available – because having the naval forces fail without him would have been a waste of character building…or character demolition, as it were.
And the final failed weapon is the cruise missile with terrain contour matching. In the eighties, that was cutting edge technology! So it’s about obsolete enough for B-movie use now. I won’t explain to you young ‘uns how it worked – it would only make me feel old and would also be kind of embarrassing for technology at that time. >_> But we had cool sneakers and all kind of neon shit, so there.
As for the collateral damage…come on, they’ll never finish that thing, anyway. But if they do, and then not dress it up each year for Godzilla appreciation day, I’ll be very disappointed.
More on Thurs…uh, Monday!
