Some Milspecs are absurd, like the coffee makers for bomber crews that had to sustain some crazy g-force ratings and atmospheric conditions that were so extreme, the bomber crews that might use such a device would have long been splatted or sucked dry of life.
One thing I do know about Milspec motherboards is that it isn't the components themselves, but the extra mounting holes that Milspec wants, because these boards need to fit into a wide variety of casings. In the "old days", Milspec boards needed to fit into cases from Compaq and HP - both of which had oddball, non-IBM hole placements. The Milspec boards had extra holes, and would fit into pretty much all manufactured cases that were on the market at the time.
