Re: LM meets military specifications

I've read military specifications, they're just to let prospective suppliers know what the military wants to buy.
It's rarely anything more complex or "higher standard" than what you can buy off the shelf in any retail store - but since the military doesn't shop retail, they publish a "specification" and leave it to suppliers to meet the criteria.
As often as not, the specifications are written to describe an existing product, to simplify procurement.
