Starting Sept 2, Howe and Howe Tech will air weekdays at 10:00 pm on discovery turbo.

World Record holders and identical twin brothers, Mike and Geoff Howe, design and build the coolest machines ever seen. From high-speed military tanks to the Personal Assault Lander (PAL) that can travel on water and land, Discovery Turbo’s latest series Howe and Howe Tech reveals their extreme vehicle modification projects for exclusive clientele such as the U.S. Army and Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT).

Howe and Howe Techfollows the family business of Howe brothers, as they stretch the limits of creativity and innovation by building ingenious off-the-wall machines with their loyal shop crew. The company prides itself on outside-the-toolbox thinking, resilience and never-quit attitude, and thus, continues to exceed expectations and impress industry and clients alike, from the US Government to National utility companies to Hollywood movie makers.

In one such undertaking, the crew builds the Subterranean Rover 1 - a rugged off-road vehicle designed to travel deep into coal mine tunnels. Mike and Geoff however decide to go one step further and design a weapon component. This “Dragon Tail” weapon technology – a spear-like device that can latch on to and drag away suspicious vehicles – has the capacity to save the lives of U.S. soldiers in combat.

Only the highest-skilled mechanists, welders and jacks-of-all-trades ready for just about anything Mike and Geoff throw at them can survive these endeavours. For the tumultous twins, no idea is “too crazy” to try, but the success or failure of each invention could make or break their enterprise.

Catch some of the most exciting innovations in the following episodes of Howe and Howe Tech:

Ripsaw Revolution: The US Army has asked the Howe brothers to modify their most famous vehicles, two high-speed tanks "Ripsaw MS1" and "Ripsaw MS2". Ripsaw MS1 is a remote-controlled tank and Ripsaw MS2 is a manned version. The publicity is great but the rigorous test-drive for the TV cameras ruins the wheels on MS-2 and the twins have to order new ones.

Ripsaw's Mini Me: Geoff and Mike get the idea to build a miniature version of the Ripsaw, an ultra-fast military tank. They call their newest invention "Mini-Rip" and market it to the general public as a recreational vehicle. Meanwhile, the team gets an order for three more SR-1 Subterranean Rovers and Geoff has to go down to Texas to show off the Ripsaw's amazing abilities in hopes of getting more contracts with the army.

RipTide is Born - Mike and Geoff are underway on their biggest project ever: the Riptide, an amphibious tank prototype for the US Army.  Mike wants to begin ordering armor to protect its vital computer systems, but Geoff has a different idea. He wants to build his own armor. An argument ensues ending in a friendly challenge: Mike, Geoff and shop foreman Will will each design and build their own armor. To find out whose armor works best, they head out to the test pit and fire large rounds at the prototypes.  In the meantime, the Howes receive an email from a disabled Vietnam veteran named Rocky  who  inspires them to build a rugged all-terrain vehicle designed specifically for people in wheel chairs. They call it RipChair. Young engineer Josh and new welder Dee take the lead on putting this new prototype together. As the deadline looms, a last minute test run nearly wrecks the project. The crew needs to work late into the night to get their prototype ATV in tip top shape in time for Rocky's emotional test drive.

Badger Resurrected: Members of a SWAT unit have put in a request to see a field test of a fully functioning Badger, the world's smallest armoured tank. But after the last blast test blew its tracks to pieces, the Howe brothers are left scrambling to resurrect the Badger. Adding to the time crunch, the crew still has to work on building three Subterranean Rovers for a mining company and they are way behind.
