Response to Re: I don't think that's the WE of old

but a major reason they are made so RUGGED is because a missile is far more demanding than the "str's" made for fenders, as an example, even if the enemy does nothing .

In particular the connections made with burst welders which connect pins to plates , heaters, grids .. aren't much more than adequate in typical tubes. A good shake could easily loosen them, not red banks though .
