Government force? I don't recall many firing squad for tax dodgers. If you fail to pay, fines ramp up over time and you can be tried, receive further fines, and eventually incarerated for tax evasion. Defining lawful trial and punishment as government violence seems a bit over the top.

Could you with a special eye reticle make an IR tracer that can only been seen by someone with that eyepiece?

KEI (as originally envisioned) would have split the difference with about a three hour emplacement time.
A couple hundred on Guam with a SWERVE on top in a super hardened 'dense pack' would work for me.......  :o

I am sorry to hear that your site is closing down. That is a real pity because it is one of the better resources for information on a lot of the more obscure helicopters, many of which are mostly forgotten now. The problem with helicopter-related websites (and books, models etc) are that they seem to play second fiddle to the fixed-wing designs in most people's minds. Only the dedicated rotary-wing enthusiasts fully appreciate sites like yours. I hope you maintain your interest in aviation and good luck with the book.

500 Fan.

taken at gun-point

Really?! :o
Not to get off topic. While the prior statement could be said to be hyperbolic, technically all tax is taken by compulsion ultimately secured with the threat of government force, correct?
