What it is not some big monolithic thing and stem what it is it's.
Quite ingenious way to turn ordinary rocket into you served its precision surgical strike instrument.
As so take -- hydra seventy for example and turn it into something that can attack very accurately within.
Seventeen inches actually.
Mile light armored soft target so this kind of fills that gap Jonathan that exists between -- hellfire missile which you gonna wanna use for.
Use your tardiness have the armored targets.
And the other and you've got sort of the unguided rockets -- -- gonna wanna use for something like areas suppression so this is that middle ground that's fantastic for -- built up area.
Confined area we want that precision to reduce collateral damage civilian casualties and how -- casualties these sorts of things so.
-- really Smart thing wet weather and doing what circumstances.
Exactly would you see the US military using this kind of weapon -- Well I'm glad just on that he's been hitting it very successfully there Marine Corps been really happy with.
-- in listening -- agents in Afghanistan.
I'm told that they've been testing it since 2002 -- it's been out a long time.
And they just this week place and -- authorizing full production of this you know very cool system so.
It's really Smart because clearly in at a time of fiscal austerity.
Defense spending cutbacks.
But I -- -- sort of out of box acknowledges it's hastening -- already have an inventory and keeps it up you know and makes it a lot more practical unusable in -- is it.

Yeah I think that was a mistake and I know we've talked about that before because.
People are comparing it to Libya and the difference I was at the international community really got behind the Libyan very quickly as very dominant air campaign.
I'm people expecting to see that sort of thing you -- changing industry and that hasn't happened but.
You know I if I what is speculate if we were to get involved or any other members of the national international community.
You you'd expect probably an air engagement so.
I love seeing things like that because these things are import and and this is a plug and play technology we've got tons of them and Harrison -- some -- what we.
-- has so you have to -- go -- buying new laser guided -- Missiles.
Rockets and if the Fed -- -- the 'cause it's the same thing that they're used to we don't have to modify the launchers -- don't have to modified aircraft.
And it's terribly important if we are going to support the Syrian rebels and this -- be fantastic -- to use.

It really isn't such a success story don't you think Jonathan -- coming -- so beautifully.
And everybody was kind of thinking about traffic -- about security.
Everything they -- -- -- up pretty well in the end and they the brits.
They -- they had you know it's not just -- -- gold -- -- -- really has -- -- securities -- clearly the Olympics -- -- is going to be a lightning -- -- People who wish you know western.
