Pretty funny ,
but thats not all that unusual when it comes to ” new stuff ” , no matter who makes it . We had a lot of problems with our own equipment when it first came out , its all part of the process . Whats even more embarrassing are when companies go to show their newest < plane , tank , etc . to the military , and it either crashes or craps out like this one did . That happens a lot . Murphy’s Law is universal . Porsche and Henschel were in competition with each other to come up with a super tank for WW2 . The Porsche prototype crapped out ………..right in front of Hitler himself …………………………the other company got the contract , and it went on to become the Tiger 1 . The M16 , when it first came out was an unreliable hunk of junk , they corrected the problems and it was fine after that .
