Behold the terrible terror of the Cyclone! It uses compressed air to kill - er, to settle battles. I'm not sure if Frank appreciated the antiseptic cleanliness of death by brute-force air - not a lot of blood, just mangled internal organs - but perhaps the outward appearance of mayhem was something he appreciated. It lets a fellow know he wasn't dabbling in some abstract experiment. By God no, he was out there, getting his hair mussed. Bully for war!
