Saw this hmmwv on the Bumblebee Transformers movie. I haven’t seen a good grill like this. Looks like rope? Anyone see this setup before?

Always make the FNG straight out of basic go chase the wire to bring it back for the next missile.

The wire from the missile is super thin.

Ok, I figured it out. I don’t think it’s original service unless the army had an electrified harpoon gun. That was the weapon on the turret along with 2 50 cals

To clarify for future surfers...IT'S a TOTALLY FAKE WEAPON.....
Not a TOW missile launcher, Not Military, Hollywood fantasy ala Star Trek Phaser, Photon Torpedo, etc. no basis on reality.

Just for clarification.

Oh and the harpoon electrocuted it at the same time.

With all the extra stuff crammed in there ejecting spent cartridges must be pretty exciting all by itself!
