Technically all 3 are.

SWAT - Special Weapons And Tactics
FEAR - Forgot but I remember it having an acronym i'm sure.
HEAL - High Efficiency Air Launcher

Edit: Nope, no acronym for FEAR.

But you are half right, SWAT wasn't named for the acronym, just because of how big the cannon, something like a SWAT team would useand it's old black paintjob in relation to a SWAT team.

The SWAT is rather dubious, because it obviously isn't a special weapons and tactics team (although I'm sure it counts as a special weapon).

If I recall correctly, Killjoy named the 55' hybrid "FEAR" because someone saw it and said that they were now afraid of him.

And _Fnord's cannon was just called "Big Ghetto Pneumatic". I don't think he ever called it by "BGP".

See my edited post in relation to SWAT.

And Fnords hybrid cannon, not his pneumatic. Doesn't that have an acronym. Anyway FEAR isn't an acronym, I thought it was, now I realised it isn't.

Edit: Nope, no acronym with Fnord either.
