Definitely an odd looking WHIF.  It looks like it has the nose of a B-52 and there is part of a submarine on top of the battleship parts.  The wing tip gun turrets are interesting.

What did someone here say?  Oh yeah.  That's mad as a box of frogs.

I wonder which bits are Army and Marines?  I'm guessing the USJF is US Joint Forces or something similar, going off the Navy and Air Force corners. 


At least they got the Stars and Bars the right way.
