DESCRIPTION:
(from Smithsonian Channel's press release, January 2017) Season two of the Smithsonian Channel original series THE WEAPON HUNTER shines a light on true American heroes as series host, history buff and restoration expert Paul Shull partners with veterans to spotlight iconic moments and artefacts in military history. This is history that leaves a mark. From a Vietnam era gun truck and a World War II B-25 bomber, to a giant 20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft cannon and more, THE WEAPON HUNTER is history up-close and personal. Season two of the six-episode series premieres Sunday, February 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Paul Shull returns on his quest to get his hands on some of the world's rarest and most remarkable pieces of military history. To do so, Paul calls on his network of military artifact collectors who have amassed collections that rival those found in the world's great military history museums. This season, Paul also calls upon combat veterans - including a 96-year-old eyewitness to the Pearl Harbor attack , veterans from Vietnam, and Marines recently returned from Afghanistan and Iraq.
