Saucisson is, in fact, the French word for sausage. I suggest that this page be changed to refer to that, seeing as the French have a varied sausage-making tradition.-- (talk) 22:00, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Except that this is the English language Wikipedia, where we name articles in English. In English, saucisson is a military engineering term. If you want to write an article on French sausage making, (or rather, expand the Sausage#France section), that would be an excellent thing, but the appropriate article title would be something like French sausage or Sausage-making in France. (Don't forget to include boudin and rosette de Lyon.) -- (talk) 23:32, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and you're not quite right, anyway; the French word for sausage is saucisse. Saucisson is a particular type. -- (talk) 23:39, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Bangalore torpedoes?[edit]

Does this term have any modern use with French sappers for what's also described as either a bangalore torpedo, or a MCLC like Giant Viper? Andy Dingley (talk) 10:04, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
