Goodbye anti-ship guided missles. Harpoon, Exocet, you have met your match.

From story: "Just how lethal? That depends on how many rounds you want to fire and how many barrels you want to put to use. In a test firing of 36 barrels, lashed together and firing full bore, the gun reduced a series of 15 wooden doors to toothpicks in just two-tenths of a second." Damn. Think ATF will approve them for civy use?[:D] Another pic from the article: [img]http://a112.g.akamai.net/7/1112/492/20010928/www.wired.com/news/images/full/metal_storm5_f.jpg[/img]

www.metalstorm.com it's really worth watching their video footage about concept deployment for military useage. The idea of having 4-5 of these things deployed in the field and being able to rain down multiple munitions over a very large battlefield within a matter of split seconds is quite impressive. Hell with the techno-geeked out smart handguns. I like the military application stuff though like the large square boxe pictured at the top.
