Just discovered that in Europe (not sure which countries, we're still struggling with the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg)
the Piranha came with the missille launcher that was only avaible in europe. I just bought one carded.
Here's a picture of a dutch catalog of the Piranha with the launcher.
Also, on that catalog it says that it wasn't avaible in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Strange enough I bought 2 as a kid and several others did 2.
Maybe import like the stellar stiletto, maybe wrong catalog. If anyone had a dutch/belgium box, blueprints or any like that please let me know.

Here's the pic of the catalog.

someone says he's 100% sure he got that missile launcher when he bought it in the Netherlands in a CANADIAN box. If that's true it means that this ain't only a european version after all.

Funny you mentioned that, because I just remembered my Razorback (or "Atilla" as it was called) had a missile launcher! I lost it years ago, but I remember hating the thing 'cause the colors didn't match the vehicle in any way (it was purple and black)
The vehicle driver had multiple filecards in different languages, so I assume it was a european release.

Or anything that leads to a european release?
