Remote-Controlled Terrorist Coffin



The Remote Controlled Terroist Coffin (RCTC) is a magic box that houses the violent potential of design. The RCTC is a model for a full-service terrorist operation, activated from an unspecified location by an unknown operator. It contains both conventional and unconventional weapons to provide a full-range of disruptive options. The RCTC includes a spy drone, surface to air missiles, a large bore mortar cannon, truth gas dispersion unit, attack helicopter squadron, cyber coercion technology and an innovative bio-pestilence feature.Remote Controlled Terrorist Coffin is something between a toy model of a fictional building and a fully functioning DIY air force.
