MYTHBUSTERS: ALASKA SPECIAL

FUTURE WEAPONS: ALASKA SPECIAL
Venturing into the intense battlefield of Alaska, host Richard “Mack” Machowicz takes viewers on a wild ride as he tests one of the world's best sniper rifles for cold weather warfare, fires a 105mm canon from the newest Styker armored vehicle, and learns how to become virtually invisible from the enemy by using a smoke generator to hides heat and radar signatures.
People have been living in Alaska for longer than anywhere else in America, and vigilance in this part of the world is not just practical -- it's a matter of survival. In this special, SURVIVORMAN host Les Stroud will put his survival skills to the test as he embarks on a quest to find out how the inhabitants of this frontier survive. With the help and guidance of experts and Alaskan natives, Stroud experiences some of the most extreme weather scenarios that nature has to offer.
