That is a good idea!



As for the comment about more snipers... because it acts in the same manner as a guided missile it is probably more likely to not add a class but increase the use of drones and airial gun platforms. The same infantry with the missile designater can be used as the bullet designater.

- In fact it may remove the need to have sniper teams in deep deployment altogether. Have a drone mark the target, fire from a C-130, remove target with no collateral damage. The threat of being shot from anywhere at anytime while out in the open might reduce the need to leave scout troops in hostile cover.

Regardless, you don't think that your taxes are funding every other sort of weaponry development that the military is even minutely interested in?

Right we need self guided ammo to keep spreading democracy around the globe? Give me a break. How about we make border jumper seeking tranquilizer ammo?

You don't get it do you? It's the morale that goes with such weapons that I don't like, we keep going to wars or wanting to go to war against countries who try to arm themselves a little while at home we're building ridiculously advanced ammo. When it's "press a button" easy to kill people without even having to be close to them, that's when we'll be taking out people all around the world (will probably be used home too for "civil unrest"). It's not about the "challenge", it's about the fact that it makes it too easy to control people and when you supposedly don't have to worry about collateral damage, you'd get a green light to kill just about anyone.

Unforunately the same people "spreading democracy" (mob rule at the end of a gunbarrel- controlled by those at the top of the power pyramid) are the same ones trying to completely blur the current borders of not only the U.S., but of all of the world. The idea is to create universal chaos to enable a new order- "Ordo ab Chao" (From Chaos Order).

But anyway, maximum effective range is maximum effective range. The rifle and round will be accurate to long after that, but can't be relied upon to make a clean kill. That having been said, a slug the size of a .338 LM is probably going to be lethal throughout its entire trajectory, although the design parameters call for 1.5 kilometers, that doesn't mean it won't be effective beyond its engineering. It's not like the bullet stops midair and drops from the sky after that, or suddenly wobbles itself off its trajectory.

You don't get it do you? It's the morale that goes with such weapons that I don't like, we keep going to wars or wanting to go to war against countries who try to arm themselves a little while at home we're building ridiculously advanced ammo. When it's "press a button" easy to kill people without even having to be close to them, that's when we'll be taking out people all around the world (will probably be used home too for "civil unrest"). It's not about the "challenge", it's about the fact that it makes it too easy to control people and when you supposedly don't have to worry about collateral damage, you'd get a green light to kill just about anyone.

I don't understand then--your previous statement implied that killing and warfare should be a challenge, not easy, but now you're saying that it's the morality of weaponry that you have a problem with--you didn't make a morality statement earlier, so I'm a bit confused.

So you'd rather, out of sheer "fairness," have hundreds or thousands of soldiers march into battle fighting through front-lines troops with equal firepower in order to take down some oppressive militaristic individual that poses a military threat to some society or country (not saying US or otherwise--just some ubiquitous entity), as opposed to minimizing human losses on both sides if an alternative were available? If that's the case, it's a very interesting use of "morality."

If fired from a very high vertical point the bullet will only need to be guided. The mass of the bullet will provide sufficient force to neutralize the target. The effective range could then be modified depending on delivery method.

Here is Neo, who was lucky enough to be standing 4,922ft away from a whole bunch of snipers.

Defense: go inside. wink.gif

Before you say, use bigger bullets.... that would defeat the point of a surgical kill.
