Parahawks are somewhat quirky machines, but when they arrive
in force they
are not easy to shrug off.
James Bond has to deal with several of these machines when they
attack unexpectedly in the Caucasus Mountains. They are extremely
slow moving, but are fitted with machine guns and parachute mines,
and end up starting an avalanche which Bond
gets caught up in.
The machines have a parachute permanently fixed to their frame.
It can be jettisoned in an emergency, but this is not advisable.
The large propeller mounted on the rear provides the forward
thrust, and on the underside are skis for more conventional travel.
