Die in a hail of bullets!
Metal Storm is gonna rock ya.

This has been in the news before, but Metal Storm, a company in Australia just got approval to hook up their electronically controlled weapon of ultimate death to the underside of a DragonFly unmanned aerial vehicle.

Check out the video on ifilm...

Wow.


Heh can't think of much else to say...


Wow

The other story on that Metal Storm homepage is about an Area Denial Weapons System. That was being tested about an hour, hour and a half away from where I'm sitting. The Proof and Experimental range is surrounded by falling-down barbed wire fences with signs intermittently stating words to the effect of "If you climb this fence and get shot, it's your own fault".

I go past it every time I visit my grandparents. It's kinda scary - while I assume they're firing *into* the property, are the bullets are going to stop at the fence?

But yeah. Electronically Controlled Weapon of Ultimate Death (tm) - I thought that was purely an American thing? We don't often go in for that sorta thing, down here. We're happy enough with the poisonous snakes and the kangaroos.

....did that say 1,000,000 rounds per minute? And didn't we see these before in Terminators 1 and 2?

Yeah, but now their real, and I know this guy, who quit a job at Boeing, but was working on sky-net.

Yeah... 1 millllleeeeion rounds per minute. And was was only(?!) 180 rounds in thoes shots.

The technology is really wild: There's no moving parts; the bullets are stacked up in the barrel end to end, and are fired individually using electronic iginition without igniting the other bullets in the barrel behind it. By using this technique, and making the trigger a 'soft trigger', they can pull tricks like getting the second bullet off before the recoil can take effect.

Fucking wicked (and deadly) shit.

So, like, if you lobbed an electricy grenade at it they'd all go off and the thing would be knackered?

Assuming one could make an 'electricity' grenade?

Uh oh. The 53rd state now has some boom-boom. kinda.

Coolness, they showed this on a recent episode of Future Weapons, on the Discovery channel.
