[Physorg]Self-guided bullet prototype can hit target a mile away - Page 3

post #21 of 127
I think we [US] have some good bombs we can just use on a target instead of having to put people on the ground to fire the bullets.

You are mistaking what is done under the auspices of "National Security" with what local police do. The CDC for instance has access to the complete sample library of blood samples taken from every child born (in a hospital) in this country for a very long time, some sources say this has only been going on for 20-30 years, others say much longer. The Pentagon has complete oversight regarding contagious disease -it is afterall a "national security risk" of the highest order, so they do in fact have acces to the blood of everyone. All military personal (including anyone who has taken an entrance physical and then did not enter service) have their blood samples in storage- and obviously these are held by the Pentagon- this alone accounts for ~ 100 million samples, of which all in the past 20 years or so have had DNA profiles created for them for sure- older ones maybe the DNA profile has been created- maybe not- but they still have the blood sample. If they have your blood, they have your DNA , and unless you have never visited a hospital they definitely have your blood - it is that simple.

The problem with this approach is that Bombs cannot tell the difference between military and civilians. You punish everyone for generally one leaders actions. Not Cool. Also, in today's world with instant media and "clearly to the highest bidder" news sources that are rather unreliable, it would not be long before different forms of manipulation where employed by sparring nations to have soulless attacks carried out by bombs that do not care to divide fact from fiction.

That would be a BAD thing as it may increases collateral damage. Just fire more shots.

You said it was impossible, I'm just saying it is. I'm not saying the rifle was built for it or accurate for that distance.

It' guided though, so it's not your basic lead/heavy gun powder filled brass.

The rifle is accurate. The shot was close.

If the rifle weren't accurate, it'd be a complete crap shoot as to where the bullet would hit. As it was, with a combination of ammo, shooter, and rifle, they were able to place a bullet on the target. A few correcting shots were obviously needed, but if the rifle itself wasn't accurate, they wouldn't be able to "correct" for it. The bullet impacted in a consistent enough manner that shooter was able to take the target.

So yes, there are rifle/round combinations that are accurate up to 1.5 miles.

Smart bullet. In real life it reduces friendly fire incident and makes snipers' life much easier.

Man, computer games are way behind reality. Year 2500? Of COURSE our guns use normal bullets.

Also I think you have to understand that warfare is about as few casualties as possible in terms of say, the American team going in to take out the terrorists (excuse the melodrama), basically they want no casualties on their own side and any tech they can use to reduce risk to their soldiers they will develop and use as often as feasibly possible. I just wonder when it'll end up like Shattered Galaxy and we have giant mechs fighting the battles instead of humans.
