This makes sense to me.


ORLANDO, Fla., June 17, 2014 – Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] successfully fired HELLFIRE and DAGR missiles from its Long Range Surveillance and Attack Vehicle (LRSAV) turreted weapon system during recent ground-to-ground tests at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.

The LRSAV is a fully integrated, turreted, ground-vehicle weapon system. It uses advanced missile and weapon control-system technologies and a newly developed 15-inch, spherical, mast-mounted electro-optical/infrared sensor to enable targeting and employment of missiles from a wide range of surface platforms.

During the tests, the vehicle-mounted LRSAV system launched a HELLFIRE II missile from 6.4 km and a DAGR missile from 3.5 km. Both missiles successfully impacted their targets. In both tests, missile lock-on-before-launch and lock-on-after-launch capabilities were used to demonstrate LRSAV’s flexibility for various engagement scenarios. Additionally, an AH-64D Apache helicopter equipped with Lockheed Martin’s Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) was used to remotely designate the short-range target, validating LRSAV’s cooperative battlefield-engagement capability.

So it's like an Avenger/Striker redux with less capacity and no .50 coax?

What is that flash off the target tank at 26secs and 45secs just before the Hellfire hits? A reflection of a sensor unit? a laser? a SECRET? (Am I in danger now?) and is that an ambulance thats used as a target at 1min or so? The conspiracy bois will love that !!

But whoever picks the music for the sales videos needs to be beaten to death.

The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

Skynet launches Hellfire II and DAGR missiles.

The target market is old white congressmen bringing home pork to their districts and setting themselves up for a cushy defense sector lobbying job.
