A big hat tip to David over on Feral Jundi’s Facebook page for reminding me of this movie. This is an all time classic and a reminder as to how the Pentagon procurement process can go horribly wrong. It also helps to explain how idiotic weapons like the F-35 get made (read David Axe’s post on the subject for an excellent primer), and how highly effective weapons like the A-10 get mothballed.
By the way, this is a clip from the movie that showed how the Bradley Fighting Vehicle came about. Pretty hilarious. You can watch the whole thing on youtube if you want to watch it sometime later. -Matt
