    From my friend who was involved with the MOAB project, now works with AC-130s:

    All

    If interested, on 9 April, the Television Show "Future Weapons" will feature one of my ongoing weapons technology programs. It's only a small sample, but that's all we were allowed to release to the public. They will do more on the AC-130U during the segment however. Unless they have changed the script, I am interviewed during one small segment.

    Here's a link

    Thanks,

    Is Future Weapons available in Europe across the pond?

    I caught part of an episode on a new sniper rifle the other night. Impressive!

    I've only seen a few episodes, but it's a really good show. the host has 15 years experiance as a Navy SEAL so he actually knows what he's talking about (more than other hosts might have anyways.)

    Bill said that they were a great bunch to work with. They really understood that a lot of what goes on there is classified and didn't try to push their bounds.

    not sure how future the AC 130 was in 2007, or even the moab.
    but here is a cool waste of time:
