Discovery Channel: Series 2 starts Thursday 25 October

NZ TV Premiere: FutureWeapons (Series 2)

Discovery Channel – Thursdays from 25 October, 8.30pm

Former Navy SEAL Richard “Mack” Machowicz returns for new episodes of this popular series that goes in search of the latest, cleverest and most terrifying technology starting to dominate the battlefields of the 21st century. Mack introduces the macabre and secret world of weapons development including some that seek out targets almost on their own; others that tap new forms of destructive power; and a few that push the limits of overwhelming force. Viewers will witness weapons that always find their target, including the AS50 semi-automatic sniper rifle and the Vulcan and Aardvark mine destroyers. Other episodes feature weapons that defeat the opposition including the Boot Banger car bomb neutraliser and the amazing Dragon Skin body armour. Mack also gets hands on with the weapons and tries them out for himself – firing anything from smart missiles to futuristic lasers.
