Arms race

Filed under: arms — grapes2dot0 @ 11:19 am

According to the Danger Room blog, military researchers are working on “non-lethal” weapons including bean-bag launchers and water-pistols.

“The assessments done have shown the possibility of designing a portable self-contained unit of 1 – 3 Kg [2 to 7 lbs] that will generate a liquid jet with kinetic energy of up to 100 Joules. Such a jet will provide a damage effect at 5m [17 feet] distance.”

Coming soon: pointing and laughing at the enemy, calling him names and slagging off his mum. Nightmare scenario: armed forces resort to first use of sticks and stones, resulting in broken bones.

  2. I’d pay good money to see the livestock launcher from The Holy Grail put into real military action.
