Yes, these are extremely heavy - the 1602 with the additional
24kW memory extension can only be transported over larger
distances using a barrow. It is not that big, but has a
density close to water ;-)

It is incredible to see, that there have been over 20 of the
Rolm processors and chassis in the aforementioned ATTAS aircraft.
And during some trials a F-16 had to carry three additinoal
Hawk/32s  ;-)
