Description

To protect troops in Iraq and Afghanistan from RPG's, the Pentagon's Office of Force Transformation invested in Trophy. Trophy knocks RPG's out of the sky and, in testing, was found to be 98% efficient. However, before it could be battle tested or given to the troops, the US Army scuttled the plan. The Army believed Trophy would undermine the development of its Future Combat System.
