Thanks for this video!
I remember well, when I as a teenager in the mid-90's read this development history in the book 'Tom Clancy – Fighter Wing – A Guided Tour of an Air Force Combat Wing'.

Found another historical video with a more comprehensive overview on the development effort.

Should this be moved over to Missile Projects?

The thing about this project that always amused me is the guy saying, "I know where there's a field of howitzer barrels. . ." (The original barrels removed from the M110s when they put the new ones on.) Really puts a spotlight on the importance have having the right people talking to each other, and also not throwing stuff away that might be useful down the road.
