Traditionally, shock models are of two kinds. The failure (of a system) is related either to the cumulative effect of a (large) number of shocks or it is caused by a shock which is larger than some critical level. The present paper is devoted to a mixed model, in which the system is supposed to break down either because of one (very) large shock, or as a result of many smaller ones.
