Future weapons

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/6917041.stm

    'The US Army is developing a truck-mounted laser weapon to destroy rockets, artillery shells and mortars.
    Aerospace giant Boeing has been awarded a contract to start on the first phase of the project - designing a control system for the laser beam.

    The solid state laser weapon would eventually be mounted on a 10-tonne, eight-wheel-drive tactical truck.

    The American military has several programmes underway to develop battlefield lasers.'

    I seem to remember reading an article about all sorts of other weapons a while back, the one that sticks in my mind are the sonic weapons which use sound waves to incapicitate an enemy, a bit like the Brown Note episode of South Park.

    Anyone else know anything about this or any other developments? I think the whole thing is quite interesting. Maybe thats just me though? :?
     
  2. Theres the BPMG, a modified GMG that fires buttplugs rather than grenades.
