In the '80's the Honeywell corporation (?) developed the Sadarm BAT missile system.

Bulldog would qualify two ways then, as well as the tractor there used to be an aircraft built by Bristol called the Bulldog.

I think they also had a Bloodhound, Bullpup and a Badger (built a lot of them as models in my youth :wink: )

And while we're on aeroplanes, there was the Fairey Barracuda as well.

Of the top of my head I cannot remember any others with B, but I'm sure to have missed some - animals, birds, fish and insects were quite popular for early aircraft :whistle:

The Mercury Cougar is an automobile sold under the Mercury brand of the Ford Motor Company's Lincoln-Mercury Division. The name was first used in 1967 and was carried by a diverse series of cars over the next three decades. As is common with Mercury vehicles, the Cougar shared basic platforms with Ford models. Originally this was the Mustang, but later versions of the Cougar were based on the Thunderbird, and the last was a version of the Contour/Mondeo.

I'll add Toyota CONDOR - No explanation here, it's a car made by Toyota :D
