    I was thinking more along the lines of Fido

    I don't disagree with the connotations of the name, just doesn't quite fit for a British vehicle. Then again Vector was a crap name too.

    The Olympic torch was extinguished several times during demonstrations in Paris that denounced China, host of the Summer Games, for its policies in Tibet. In the end, organizers canceled the final leg of the torch procession through the city. Police officers apprehended an advocate for Tibetan rights who was waving the Tibetan flag. The protests turned the torch relay into a chaotic series of stops and starts.

    there's room for one on both sides, so either they decided one was enough, or they didn't bother taking any for a trial run around Bastion.
