This comes with a launch pod- egg large enough for anything to fit inside it.

(Including humans and other things.)

       // large enough for anything to fit inside it.//   

       I feel sure that that will lead to all manner of lawsuits relating to overambitious marketing. For example, will a pod be large enough to contain a pod capable of containing itself?   

       Also, why?
MaxwellBuchanan, May 16 2012
  

       I have know idea.
skinflaps, May 16 2012
  

       That's good enough for me.
MaxwellBuchanan, May 16 2012
  

       As long as it's big enough to deploy my rhinoceros platoon (including the support squad), I'll be happy enough. Any specs on maximum operational altitude and radar profile? I'm planning a mission over the West Country in the near future, and one of these might really come in handy.
Alterother, May 16 2012
  

       The operational altitude will surely be unlimited, in order to accommodate a launch pod- egg capable of containing anything.   

       //I'm planning a mission over the West Country// About time those laid-back Californians got a wake- up call.

       Actually, I meant _your_ West Country, but if I have time to spare I'm thinking of dropping a squad or two on Spokane as well.
Alterother, May 16 2012
  

       This is a great idea except for the part where you have suggested it.

       I suppose I would try it, once.

       >your_ West Country   

       Ah, those Lower Devonian Schists, they've had it coming for years..

       Does it run on petrel?
UnaBubba, May 17 2012
  

       great, masssive...

       Boobies?

       Scrambled anvils.
skinflaps, May 17 2012
  

       Surely?! Must be baked, by now (Red Bull Flugtag-wise)...

       single seater seagull...sss

       I like how you put the s in ass in masssive.
bungston, May 17 2012
  

       Putting the SSS in deflation.
UnaBubba, May 18 2012
  

       Quetzalcoatlus northropi
had a wingspan as large as 15.9 meters (52.2 feet)
and a mass of about 200–250 kilograms (440–550 lb).
assuming that the Single Seat is for a 70Kg human being, then it is not imposible.
if you are in the UK look up SSDR microlights.

       I think we're discussing something quite a bit larger, if it's to be capable of egg-drop deployment of an entire platoon (with support squad) of rhinoceros commandos.
Alterother, May 18 2012
  

       A Chinook Seagull? Twin rotor, payload of 12.7 tonne, or 30-55 troops.
UnaBubba, May 18 2012
  

       A chinook is a fish too so it would be amphibious.
AusCan531, May 18 2012
  

       Shirley, a 'chinook seagull' would be an ouroborotic fish/bird, then?   

       [j paul], welcome back.
