It's got the look I'm after then!

Keep up the good work.
Hey man this is why it's all work in progress!

Exactly why I'm having a go at it. Since to test it in game it replaces the shotgun used by everybody so I've seen it in all the class' hands, and it only really fits the Soldier in regards to the changes in shape (and it really doesn't fit the heavy since it's a tiny baby shotgun).
I've been thinking of some potential names for some of this kit and I'd appreciate any thoughts on the following:
For the E-tool, the Market Gardener
This comes from the thought of making a play on the fact that it looks like a deranged gardening implement (which is pretty much what e-tools are anyway) and a reference to Operation Market Garden, one of the paratrooper's major operations in WW2.
For the Rocket Launcher
It's proving pretty difficult to come up with something that fits this because the origin of the name Bazooka is pretty colourful in itself. GI's decided it looked like a novelty instrument played by Bob Burns
and the name stuck. Since we know the Soldier has a pretty loose grip on reality the following line of thought could work:
"This thing? I hear they named it after that novelty instrument, the Kazoo" - the Soldier
The Panzerschrek also got a nickname based on what it looks like - Ofenrohr (stove pipe). Thing is there's already a stove pipe in the game since that's an english name for a top hat, so to go along the same lines it would have to be the Chimney
or the Smokestack
, or some other pipe-like thing.
So, thoughts? More research needed?
