AIRED:
In this episode, R. Lee Ermey compares Civil War rifles from both sides, learns about the first missile fired from the deck of a sub, compares the Navy's Mark 21 deep-sea suit, used for depths as far as 300-feet below surface, to "crush-proof" suits used in extreme missions that can go almost 2,000 feet down. Ermey then performs a field strip, breaking down a weapon, finds out why the Bowie knife is so special, and explains the evolution of a hedge chopper, used on tanks during D-Day.moreless
