Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Interesting article that hit the press today

http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/02/03/287119/british-army-unveils-new-spy-drone/

The contract for these is estimated to be worth £20 million with repairs and maintenance - Hmmm, not bad for something that looks like the old ';Piccolo Mini Copter';

Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.
