why don't people in pubs understand when I call arty "GBU-15's, with FLIR and AWACS support". Are that many civvies completely unaware of the munitions of freedom?

Lol, yeah, here is the break down:
GBU - Guided Bomb Unit
-15 - 2000 pound dumb bomb, made "intelligent" with a set of strap on fins and a nose FLIR added.
FLIR - Forward Looking Infrared
AWACS - Airborne warning and early control, i.e. targeting data.
I worked for a company that made parts to turn the dumb 2000 pound bomb into a guided weapon, GBU-15.
