When Magnum Industries acquired the patents, rights, templates and machinery for the SRV-4 CHARIOT drop pod, they quickly realized that the CHARIOT simply could not be adapted as much as the military R&D and field personnel wanted.  The larger FIREPOD design was an evolutionary design.  The greater capacity allowed military planners a choice of dropping larger units of light infantry or armored troops in their typical smaller squad size.  The ability to drop a standard cargo container solved drop troops’ logistical problems, while the GUNPOD version (compatible with any Finger and Toe plug-swappable weapons) simply adapted the cargo carrier to a standard weapons module.  The flexibility of the modular weapons pod provided everything from anti-air, to long range indirect fire, to direct fire support and close in defense.  Many planners saw the FIREPOD could easily be the basis for a quickly deployed bridgehead base, substituting habitation/command modules for the cargo containers, while using the squad pod for living quarters.

The modular FIREPOD is Finger and Toe’s newest model.  It stands about five and a half inches. The cargo carrier will accept any cargo with a two inch by two inch footprint.  There are NINE color schemes, including a pirate pattern for those who just can’t resist plopping their squads on the table and yelling, “ARRRGH!”

Get it and start terrifying your opponents, small pets, and the old lady down the street.  Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ smoosh a FIREPOD, a new one waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
