The Foxer

Warm-up foxer (What am I?)

I'm not nearly as naval as I sound. One of my first victims was a swift dog. I've a tenuous connection with bees. I was invented by a man born in Northern Ireland. I probably inspired a WW2 rodent. I could fit inside a shoe box. In my earliest form I was manufactured close to a river named after a British king. I have something in common with SR-71s, the seventh Tintin book, and Ireland's favourite alcoholic drink. I was first used in the 19th Century.
