Canada had a missile program in the early 50’s. The name of that program was Project Velvet Glove.
As an attempt at subterfuge, I get it. With a name like that, any foreign operator would naturally assume it was a secret program to develop new mitten technology. But, as a Canadian, I find it embarrassing. I think they could have done a lot better.
Here are my—admittedly late—submissions for project names:
Project: Angry Beaver
Project: Fire Goose
Project: Thunder Moose
Project: Northern Lighting
Project: Fierce Mitten
Project: Aurora Blow Your Arses Off
Project: Totally Not A Secret Missile Program
Project: Take Off, Eh
Project: Sorry, Hoser
Project: Nuke Your Touque Off
Project: Toboggan Rocket
I know I’m missing some. Drop them in the comments.
