Sometimes the insane engineering projects the military industrial complex attempt actually work. Sometimes they don't. In between, there's testing, and Jalopnik readers have the ten most unreal videos of these projects.
Welcome back to Answers of the Day - our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best ten responses from the previous day's Question of the Day and shine it up to show off. It's by you and for you, the Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!
The military is one of humankind's greatest sources of bizarre, imaginative, totally hopeless engineering. We've seen their strangest vehicles (hell, their strangest tanks alone was a massive festival of strange). And while I would be much happier if we could all send love beams to each other and commonly share all of our wealth and understanding, I will still remain entranced by military testing videos.
What videos did we forget? Post them in Kinja below, just know that any snuff film is getting dismissed.
