ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Swiss Army-Navy-Air Force Attack-Defence-Troop Carrier Supply tool. After 13 years of precision construction, it has just rolled, flown, trundle, sailed and cut its way out of the Victorinox defense plant in the Zmutt Valley. Critics have pointed out that turning on the motor causes avalanches in all 26 cantons.
