Yoko Tsuno ] -> [ Le Canon de Kra ]


Le Canon de Kra

In a small handy jet propelled airplane, named The Humming-bird, Yoko begins the search for a cannon that can fire very large grenades. It was stationed on the peninsula of Kra by the Japanese during the Second World War. An important clue is that the biggest arms dealer in Asia, Sakamoto, has ordered grenades for it. Pol and Vic parttake less directly in the hunt. They have been hired to transport atomic waste by plane from the tiny Malaysian state Kampong to a nearby island depot. The outcome is explosive.

The Malaysian peninsula is called Kra, but Kampong is a fictive state.

The French title translates to The Cannon from Kra.
