The first line of defense against a Godzilla incursion is obviously going to be the military, though who’s military obviously depends on where he first makes landfall. They may not be the ones who finally destroy him or drive him back into the ocean—it always seems like those smarty-pants scientists play a big role there—but they’re going to do their damnedest to take him down while they can. This latest clip from Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot, and a video from the Air Force, indicate just how two branches of America’s military might go about combatting the giant, scale-covered monster.
Watching Godzilla toss around these ships like toys, not to mention seeing him superimposed against the Golden Gate Bridge, give you an idea just how massive you have to be in order to be crowned King of the Monsters. It’s pretty damn big. He’s not even the one causing most of the destruction, it’s the wayward missiles launched by the naval vessels that are really wrecking up the joint. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure he’ll have ample opportunity to make a mess, but don’t go blaming every last bit of it on the big green lizard just because he looks like he’s up to no good.
