#1 NBA dancers at bottom of that page were more interesting.

#2 I like #3, the two frogmen sitting inside the missile. Not exactly sure what it is they do but it must be a hell of a ride...

#3 I think that is supposed to be some sort of submarine / underwater transport Steve. Looks like something which was thrown together for the parade - kind of like a float.
And it's hard for anyone to compete with the NBA Dancers.

I thought it looked like one of the kids' rides they used to have in front of grocery stores. Maybe in the next generation they could have a little motor on it to make it go up and down.

#5 My kid made something like the 'Frogman Missle' when he was about 12 years old. His sheetmetal work looked a lot better, though, and it was actually waterproof.

#6 Did you notice the boxing gloves were "Spalding" and vests were "Adidas"! HA!

#7 ...The pic of the F-14s flying was interesting. Wonder how operational they are besides the ability to take off, go past the reviewing stand, and land.
Note in Pic # 5 the guy in the front row to the left has a white flag all set and ready to go.
And is it just me, or did anybody else look at the pics of the troops goosestepping and hear, "Springtime for Hitler"?

#9 And pic #2 made me realize that the Iranians have Wookies on their side. I just don't know how we're going to compete when they have Wookies.

#10 That pic of dinnerjacket looks like Al Pacino in Scarface after he's gotten high on his own supply.
What a disreputable turd (apologies to turds everywhere).

#11 Ahh... But we have Queen Wookie...
Look like march of the mops to me.

Normally I'd say 'swimmer delivery submersible'. But judging by its construction, it's either a one-way trip or designed to be built cheaply for swarm-attack.

#13 Did anyone else but me notice that one of the "iranian-made" missiles bore a very striking resemblance to a Phoenix missile, and another one looked almost identical to a Hawk missile? I wonder if these aren't just props kept around to show in parades.
