ridunkulous. It'll be too expensive to use and field. Maybe as a special purpose munition, like the 40MM, but what gun does the military have that is capable of firing a four inch long bullet at the velocities needed?

Crazy thing, I either seen this on TV back into 2000-something or had a dream about it. But it was on a man-like target. They had a sniper spotter team and the spotter used binos that had the laser built in, he had the the seem between the turret of a tank and the main body lazed and it was apperantly supposed to be able to disable the tank?

What ever it was, it was done in CG and I remember the term "feature munitions" and that's really it.

Man, there's a budget cut if I've ever seen one. Talk about a waste of money.

Gene Simmons used a round similar to these projectiles in the movie "Runaway", also starring Tom Sellick.

I wouldn't be so quick to poo-poo this. It could mean routine 4,000 yard shots are around the corner.
