OKINAWA, Japan, May 12 (UPI) -- During an interview with the Smithsonian's Air and Space magazine, members of the United States Air Force confirmed that there is a contingency plan for taking out Godzilla -- if the fire-breathing sea creature ever does attack.

Master Sgt. Jason Edwards of Kadena Air Base said the Air Force would deploy "4,000 Segways and slingshots" and would need help from certain people.

"Well I could go with Chuck Norris, but that would be the obvious one," Edwards said. "As I understand it, the Power Rangers are probably a good choice in this type of scenario...Bruce Lee, The Incredible Hulk - the CGI one, not the Lou Ferrigno one - and George W. Bush."

There are more than 50 F-15 fighter jets available at Kadena, so those planes would likely be utilized as well.

"We are quickly able to respond to any threat in the region... to include Godzilla, should he come to Japan. Which, I guess, is a thing," Edwards said.

The new Godzilla film will open in theaters on May 16.
