Hi all, Am having trouble with a name for something in my novel. First of all, it's a thriller. And it revolves around the theft of a top-secret British military project. The novel is set in present-day. I'll give you the jist of what I have so far. - Bottom-line: It doesn't exist. Not to the general public, anyway. It's either a weapon, or a piece of technology - preferably deadly, but if it's a piece of tech, then majorly disruptive to an enemy's military readiness. - Silent, but effective - If this is to be a weapon, then it has to be silent, but deadly. Silent as in, if it's airborne then it's undetectable by enemy radar. If it's a piece of technology, then it's undetectable and will easily bypass any enemy security protocols on their computers/network/mainframe. - "Cool.", but plausible in today's world - I was watching "The Hunt for Red October" last night, and it struck me, just how cool the piece of technology was. How plausible it sounded. Now I realise that most of that is down to Tom Clancy being a bloody good writer... I'd like this idea to be similar, cool, but entirely plausible. - Portable. Not necessarily easily so, but still, portability is key - In the end, this weapon, or piece of technology, or whatever, gets pinched by an Iranian black ops unit. Whether it's carried by a single operative, or flown out by an Antonov An-225 transport aircraft. Either way, portability. - Adhere to British codename protocols - I'd prefer it to adhere to British military codename protocols. The British Armed Forces operates on a one-word name basis. For example, Op Herrick (Afghanistan combat operations). Op Telic (Iraq combat operations). Op Flavius (Special Air Service operation in Gibraltar in 198. - It can also be an acronym. But I'm struggling to formulate one in my head. The thing, doesn't have to be "Operation ---------" etc, but I'd prefer if it were given a one-word codename. Sorry if this isn't the place to put this - if so, Mods, feel free to move it. If you'd like more background information, do let me know and I'll provide you with as much as I can. Cheers, Hawky.
