Metal Storm Weapons: Million-Plus Rounds Per Minute

at 5:41 am. Filed under Insane Equipment

 

The revolutionary Metal Storm technology demonstrates a completely different way of delivering a bullet. The per bullet cost sounds like it would be very high though.

“O’Dwyer’s revolutionary weapons concept is based on an electronically fired gun-and-launcher design with multiple rounds stacked in a single barrel. The only moving parts are the bullets themselves. Beyond creating an astounding fast-firing weapon, the concept makes way for the creation of entirely new types of firearms. Among other things, it will allow the shooter to select from different types of rounds and even between firing lethal and nonlethal ammunition. O’Dwyer’s ideas were initially met with skepticism, but now they are being taken seriously by the military and police.”
