I would put that in the awesome/useless category.

Amazing stuff, but what can it do that a much less bulky frame charge can't?

If you want to do it from some distance away, well:

Agree but unfortunately we don't have a awesome/useless category on Spudfiles :wink: .
The cost efficiency of this device is pretty good I would say, what could make it attractive to certain organizations.

Another wall breaking alternative would be this device even though it is not intended to be used that way....

I was speaking hypothetically ;)

Agreed that the cost per shot much be fairy low, but how expensive is the unit, especially hauling it around? Would it get used enough by a non-military organisation to justify the cost?

Maybe I'm just jealous that someone made the spudgun equivalent of Davidka and turned it into a commercial proposition ;)

The fact that it is pneumatic and not ordnance based is definitely attractive to certain organizations. The administrative and security requirements and the costs associated with both are major hurdles for many non-front line organizations. Finding ways to perform certain tasks without ordnance is VERY desirable from a cost and logistics perspective.

In other words: I could see it as a useful and cost effective training device for infantry tactics and the like. True, on a battlefield there are better ways to breech a wall, but that's largely incidental if you're doing building insertion/sweep exercises and the like.

Fair point, that was part of the reasoning behind Vargas for example.
