  1. Pion is a flower isn’t it? Russian weapon sure cane raise hell but not by their names, which is a good distraction…

    Funny, Americans name their weapon mostly by those of the innocent natives they genocided…

    Because the blast of the weapon firing is so powerful it can physically incapacitate an unprepared soldier or crew member near it from concussive force, the Pion is equipped with an audible firing alarm that emits a series of short warning tones for approximately 5 seconds prior to the charge being fired.
