  Harpoon
The Harpoon missile is powered by a Teledyne/CAE J402 turbojet in an A/B44G-1 propulsion section, giving it a maximum range of about 185 km (100 nm) for the air-launched version.
The AGM-84E Harpoon Block 1E SLAM (Stand-off Land Attack Missile) is essentially a new missile.

Harpoon Ale, the company's flagship product, is not necessarily an outstanding beer, but it does contain enough good taste for it to rank better than the average brew.

 Exploding harpoon and gun
The harpoon used for killing and catching baleen whales was (is) a formidable and heavy weapon.
The harpoon itself is re-useable and consists of a long shaft that fits in the barrel that ends in four large hinged barbs.
The barbs of the harpoon are held back by wires which break when the harpoon has hit its target and the explosive charge detonates.

 Harpoon | World of Invention
Originally the harpoon was hand thrown like the spear, but had a double-flued head like an arrow and a line attached to the shaft so the animal could be retrieved after a chase.
Although various methods of propelling the harpoon were tried at different times, the weight of the weapon and the need for accuracy demanded that it be thrown by hand at close range to the prey.
Once the harpoon has been fired from the boat and is lodged in the whale's flesh, the barbs hold the head in place until it is detonated.

 Harpoon key benefits
Harpoon is the ideal tool for delivering high quality meshes of even the most complex geometry.
Unlike other meshers, Harpoon does not rely on non-standard, 'nasty' cut cells, but moves nodes of hexas (hexahedral elements) to maintain the grid's hex-dominant structure and high quality cells.
Harpoon automatically checks the generated mesh for inconsistencies and proceeds to repair any cells of undesirable quality.
