Redirect[edit]

Gd could also mean Gadolinium, (and as mentioned, GD Graphics Library). So is the redirect from GD really a good idea here? Fayefox 10:27, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

The redirect is no longer here, as GD now points to a disambiguation page. Removed the redirect notice. --KJRehberg 18:02, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:General Dynamics logo.PNG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:General Dynamics logo.PNG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 10:04, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

List of Organizations/Contracts?[edit]

Has anyone considered whether discussing or listing various GD-held contracts are? I am new to Wikipedia editing, but thought that htis might be helpful to people researching GD.Dc3tech 18:37, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Footnotes[edit]

This article has several general references in the References section. But it has very few inline references. That's why the tag is at the top of the article. A footnote to International Directory of Company Histories, Volume 40 would be like <ref>Pederson 2001, p. page.</ref> or <ref>Pederson 2001, pp. pages.</ref>. Actual footnote exmapled can be seen in F-15 Eagle and General Dynamics F-111 articles. -Fnlayson (talk) 19:50, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Charles Goodman[edit]

The architect Charles Goodman who died in 1992 has been incorrectly linked to this page as being Charles Goodman a director of the company who is very much still alive. Could someone please remove the link? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 160.83.160.132 (talkcontribs)

Elco[edit]

Where is the Electric Launch Company? That articls claims: At the end of the war the company merged with its sister company Electric Boat to form the nucleus of a new corporation General Dynamics. Here no word about it.--WerWil (talk) 11:40, 1 December 2008 (UTC).

OTS & ATP Merger =[edit]

I can't edit this page. Can somebody please update the page to reflect the merger Ordinance and Tactical System and Armament and Technical Products. Press release is here http://www.generaldynamics.com/news/press-releases/detail.cfm?customel_dataPageID_1811=18539 Ctempleton3 (talk) 02:04, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
