Mentalpatient87: Smoky Dragon Dish: Subby, it's HOOAH!!!

Army = HOOAH
USMC = OORAH

Friggin' commie.

Ok, there's no way you're gonna like me asking this, but what does it matter? It's a noise you make as a general cheer..


That's like asking what does the difference between a Marine (jarhead), a soldier (grunt), an airman (chairforce) or a sailor (squid) matter, they're all our armed forces. It's the little differences between the services that the individual service members take pride in. You'll often see service members that have gotten out still use some of the common phrases like Hooah, and Hoorah and other former service members notice and recognize those phrases and will often strike up a conversation.

Also, those phrases are used as much more than a general cheer. They're often a catch all phrase when asked a question and the phrase is used as a reply, usually affirming that you understand and will comply. Other times it's used as a motivational phrase.

It's friendly family rivalry.

Interesting enough, seems like an extension of the Firescout program, but I don't see why you would want to automate a manned platform. One of the big advantages of unmanned vehicles is that they can be made smaller and more packed full of sensors/weaponry since they don't have to worry about all those pesky creature comforts. Something like this would require all the standard human safety factors compounded with additional failsafes reflecting the fact that you no longer have a pilot physically in the cockpit. Interesting proof of technology, but I don't think it will get very far.
