About the "WhipIts" Merc Unit
« on: 03 March 2011, 07:53:22 »
Hola!

Nice to be here again...

I need your help with a translation to spanish.

I can not  find the meaning of "WhipIt", for the name of the merc unit "Ace Darwin WhipIts".

What does it means???

It is some kind of slang???

Please, can anyone help me???

Thank you very much in advance, and excuse me for my poor english...   

With the best regards from Spain,

I believe the name is supposed to be a condensed version of "Whip it into shape"

Darwin's command is known for coming together quickly and being functional quickly. There is an American expression "whip it into shape", that usually means to get a group functioning effectively.
