The Xenomorph, the iconic extraterrestrial creature that first (chest-) bursted onto the silver screen in Ridley Scott’s 1979 Alien is undoubtedly two things: oddly beautiful, and frightening as hell. So it makes a good deal of sense as to why members of the Czech 221 Tiger Squadron would want to paint one of their Mil Mi-24 helicopters with the essence of the double-mouthed, acid-blooded beast. Why a commuter train deserves the same treatment… perhaps it’s a Czech thing?
The train above, with the Xenomorph’d face and a little Xenomorph on its side to boot (that sign translates to “Czech Railways,” by the way) showed up on Reddit recently, and while it could be Photoshopped, we hope it’s not and that it means we can only assume one thing: the Czech Republic houses an endless supply of Xenomorph eggs waiting to infect anyone who comes near them. No, that’s not true. But one thing really is certain: a Xeno-mouthed Mi-24 helicopter armed with four 57mm rocket pods, four AT-2 Swatter anti-tank missiles, free-fall bombs, and a 12.7mm machine-gun in the nose is still not as scary as the prospect of a real-life ‘morph.
What do you think about these Xenomorph’d vehicles? Czech out the images then comment below!
