  • Metal Storm Weapons System

    I thought some of you might appreciate this. Sorry if it's already been posted, I hadn't seen it mentioned on here.

    http://www.washtimes.com/national/20020514-15769826.htm

    Here is an interesting excerpt:
    Most of Metal Storm's work is top-secret. Under development are systems that include an unmanned aerial combat vehicle that will carry twelve 40 mm mortar boxes comprising a total of 1,200 tubes, and armed with 7,200 grenades. The system's unprecedented firing capabilities can lay down a continuous 50-yard-wide carpet of grenades for two miles, firing all its grenades simultaneously with 5-yard separation on impact.
    If you have the time, take a look at these videos.

    These things are simply AMAZING!!! I (through backwater channels) came across some video of testing some of these weapons. TOTALLY AMAZING. They had a handgun which fired 9mm caseless ammo with a capacity of something like 400-600 rounds that weighed less than 4 pounds, and dumped ALL of its ammo in less than 1 second. There's also video of some of the land based anti-aircraft stuff. Just totally awesome. First time I watched it, I was left utterly speechless.
    Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.
