From once-revolutionary arms like the machine gun to the next generation of weaponry, this is a revealing look at how the tools of war are developed.
The machine gun changed the face of warfare. The tank was an awesome development that forced the rethinking of ground assault strategies and led the armed forces of the world to invent new defensive tactics. Today, it is impossible to think of warfare without these weapons. What are their equivalents that will appear on the battlefields of the future?
FUTURE WEAPONS takes us into the labs and proving grounds to look at some of the candidates. Hear from the engineers and scientists who are creating these revolutionary armaments and learn how they make the journey from the drawing board to reality.
