The Engineers creating these weapons are pretty smart guys. They go to college like any other engineer.Can you imagine the joy they must have when one of these guys meet up for a beer with your college buds and it goes around the table about what each of them are working on? Tom is working on a new energy efficient cooling system for refrigerators, Mike is doing R and D on ceramic heatshields. Then it gets to Brock.Brock says, "Ah,,,nothing really. Ok, if you really want to know, I'm the weapons designer on a project called the Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System w/ M282 Warhead."
