American Nightmare: The new Lockheed Martin Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV)

Ladies and gentlemen,

It is not with great pleasure that I introduce you to the "Multiple Kill Vehicle", to solve all your bad neighbourhood problems.

More seriously, this new machine will be used to intercept inter-continental missiles carrying multiple warheads. The idea is to try to intercept the threat with one and only one weapon (the MKV).

However, at first when I watched the video, I didn't know what it was for, and I assumed it was to kill everything around it. Objectively speaking, this weapon would certainly constitute a weapon of choice to "clean" warzones without risking the soldiers' lives. However I am not sure if is able to make the difference between the good and the bad guys...

Anyway, you can download the official press release from the pentagon HERE
