Yet Another Alternative to Buying Stealth Fighters: The Defender


Back in the 1980's the threat of Soviet invasion hanged heavy in the sky. And everyone knew that instead of nuking us from subs off of our coasts, the Soviet Union would send paratroopers in to take the arctic.

Slow and bulletproof, for the price of the CF-18's every able-bodied Canadian could have had a Defender. Then, whenever our north was under attack, you would have heard: "Maw, git me another beer and ma gun: I'm getting the Defender out of the garage."
