Fathers – they come in all shapes and sizes, and all sorts of peculiar characters. Here's our top pick of six Dad types this Father's Day.
1. Leopard 2SG Main Battle Tank
He's your main man and always has your back. Always ready to help you advance, he practically saved up for your degree while you were in diapers.
2. Section Automatic Weapon (SAW)
He always has something to say and is often loading you with grandfather stories, telling you how things were different "during his time".
3. Invincible-class Submarine
He is a man of few words and lets your mum do the talking. But when he speaks, he makes an impact.
4. CH-47D Chinook
Not your regular helicopter parent, he's there for you and ready to lift you out of trouble – but he also knows when not to hover.
Never the cool guy, he is not a particularly loud or exciting dad. But you know that he is always ready to provide for you.
6. Military Working Dog Unit
He's fierce and has a loud bark – even your friends are mindful of their manners around him. But you know that he's actually a big softie on the inside.
