Future Weapons

Show Summary

An entertaining and upbeat, mostly factual and undeniably cool show to watch about the future of weaponry. The host is a former US Navy SEAL and he uses easy to understand language. This isn't a show dealing strictly with the US military, but instead it crosses international boundaries while offering a look at truly astonishing weaponry.

    Showing the fire power of the A4 5.56 / AK 7.62 / then the new Grendel 6.5 these were shot at targets

    with a certain tension on them. The problem with it is when Mac shot the A4 5.56 he shot very low on the

    target & it did not knock it down, but when he shot it with the AK 7.62 & the "new Grendel 6.5" he hit the targets high up & yes they were knocked down. On a heavy target shooting six inches lower can make a big differance. I would like to see the A4 5.56 shot at the same location on the targets & see if they are knocked down. If Mack is sooo good with assault rifles why didn't he hit the targets in the same location?

    This was not a true test of power!!!!!!!moreless

    Future Weapons is a highly enjoyable show. If you like high tech and you like explosions then you will like Future Weapons.



    The host, Mac, is a former Seal and he brings an entertaining rough-neck personality to the show.



    Each episode usually cover 4 or 5 different weapons systems, all relating to some theme.



    It's important for the security of America that we stay in the lead when it comes to new weapons. We actually are in the middle of a precision revolution. This began with GPS smart bombs in Gulf War I and has spread rapidly throughout the services.



    Future Weapons has featured these advances. One example is Excalibur -- the awesome new guided artillery round that is a quantum leap in precision and accuracy compared to old-fashioned artillery. Excalibur made it's real world debut in 2007 and is quickly becoming the gold standard.



    Future Weapons is a front row seat at the transformation of the American military. Exciting!moreless

    The television show future weapons is a very educational show it makes you think about how the world is advancing. The weapons are really cool and it is a very interesting idea. the way the show is constructed is great. It might not be an extreamly popular show but it is very good people don't like it because you learn about stuff and that is usually why school is around. i am a person who doesn't like school and even though this show is educational. I do not see it in that way one bit. my favourite part is watching things blow up!moreless
  • The coolest show on television

    This show is so awesome. Each episode features some of the military’s newest weapons, some as the M107 Sniper Rifle, which in my opinion was the best weapon they’ve featured yet. I love TiVoing each episode and rewatching them over and voer. This show is obviously geared towards male, but I think that anyone can enjoy watching it because it is so cool. Each episode seems to get better and feature ever higher-tech, more explosive weapons. I would highly recommend that you watch this show. It's really interesting to learn what weapons the military is developing and using, including nonlegal weapons.moreless
