Tac Tech World Premiere

Tac-Tech takes an inside look at the design, testing and manufacturing of equipment that allows the men and women of the armed forces to maintain the U.S. military's superiority.

However, instead of highlighting big-ticket items like the F-22A Raptor or the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine, this innovative series explores the vital equipment carried into battle on the backs, and in the pockets, of the U.S. military personnel. This special explores the M203 grenade launcher, the Marine Corps OKC3S bayonet and the Intruder, a steerable ram-air parachute.
