When I originally bought my set of Crays they made me sign the
"acknowledgement that it is a munition" document. It came from a
government contractor and the space it was in was TS. When I sold one of
them to someone in Sweeden or Switzerland, it took me a little bit of work
to make sure I was actually allowed to export the thing.
