No not a real one, don't think the pilot would have appreciated it, and anyways there are not many flying these days, certainly none with Zuni rocket launching pods and .50 racks.
Picked up a 50mv greenie, pretty impressive beam, beats the hell out of the 5mv it replaced.

You scared the $hit out of me for a second.  :p And yes, it's mW, not mV. It's also not MW, like Wes said, MW stands for megawatts. (the w in watts always need to be capitalized, along with volts (V), amps (A).
EDIT: ;D Volts are the stored energy, while watts are the output power, while amps are the current.
volts amps watts
power source (battery, AC, etc)-----through wire, amount of current flowing---------> energy produced

Volts, watts ,,, Watts the difference ?
The difference is like saying the cost is 30 cents or the cost is 30 english pounds.. I'm sure if I charged
you 30 pounds for a Popsicle you would not agree.

Measurements have a specific weight/name and if you don't use their correct names the values change..
Then you can't convey your message (or thoughts) correctly... and no one will understand what you are
specifically trying to say. :)

Guys ... It was a typo, then a joke, relax.
I thought the "watts the difference" would have made that clear, next time I'll use a smiley.

M (capital) is mega. m (lower case) is mili

'MW' is megawatt, mW is miliwatt

EDIT: LRMNmeyer beat me to it :p

Yea but cents and pounds are still currencies and can be converted from one into another with a multiplier(in a certain point in time at least). To calculate Watts from Volts you need to know the Amps too. :p
