Military Technology

by Ron Fridell


1 New & Used Starting at $9.60


A soldier carries an explosive devise powerful enough to rip apart a heavily armored tank, yet small enough to fit in his pocket. Another wears body armor so safe he doesn't even notice when he's been shot. A pilot flies a jet that is invisible to its enemies and fires laser beams to knock down enemy missiles. What do all these members of the armed forces have in common? They are using military technology-tools and machines that protect soldiers and defeat enemies. Learn amazing facts about military technology in this fast-paced glimpse into the future of science.
