Episode Summary

EDIT
Grenade Launchers; Shrapnel; D-Day Paratrooper Gear; Jet Packs
AIRED:
In this episode, we learn how grenade launchers work, how a .30 caliber machine gun compares to a .50 caliber, watch Ermey behind the wheel of a Flyer 21--part dune buggy and part heavily-armed Jeep. We also discover the origin of the word shrapnel, what gear was unique to D-Day paratroopers, and if the military ever used jetpacks.moreless
