Metal Storm

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Wed May 03, 2006 8:50 pm

I read about a weapon with a rate of fire of 1 million rounds/minute. Not just bullets but 40 cal grenades. No moving parts whatsoever, the ammo is stacked in the barrel and fired with electronic pulses. It's full name is the Metal Storm Area Denial Weapons System. I believe it was made in Australia and they're working on a pistol version. This site has some cool videos.

Their doing a show on it on Discovery Channel at 10:00. Future Weapons.

Sorry I put it under activities. I Pole Vault, does that work? :D

every single round, at the rate they are fired can hit almost exactly the same spot because by the time the gun recoils, the bullets have left the chamber, every one of them.

here is a metal storm 16 pod grenade launcher, tank column = byebye with a few sentries of these.

I saw the special on it, it was insane... they simulated a tank column rolling up on a few of them.

Image

This next one is a metal storm site gun firing... just imagine the damage that can be inflicted upon a group of soldiers trying to sneak by, or if someone is inside a house, but it is too dangerous for explosives, this baby can jackhammer through the wall in a matter of seconds tops.

Image

This next one is a jet equipped with 4 pods that hold metal storm weapons, flys over the target and spews grenades or napalm or whatever your mind can come up with.

Image

a 40mm badass treaded grenade spewing, enemy destroying robo storm.

Image

Image

An remote control attack chopper fitted with 2 metal storm guns for hit and run without risking a soldiers life.

Image


Simulation of metal storm mowing down a vehicle convoy

Image

40mm grenade spewing sentry gun.... looks like halo or mech warrior

Image

They'l never know what hit them...
