16666 is possible with the technology of today... the recolt might be very strong that why the monut it on wheels, I've seen the impossible before when i was in saf but not supergun.
wow constantly amazed by what i can learn in clubsnap.Originally Posted by Tetrode
anyway, Singapore has those weapons? or are they just testing it here?
with these weapons, no more bobo (or wowo) shooters anymore, but IA drills super siong, so many rounds, how to dig out. or will it cause a big explosion in the barrel?

i feel very strongly that a handgun cannot let of 16,666 a second! unless the barrel was stacked for several meters in which case it would be pointless as a handgun!!!Originally Posted by zerofour
I believe the specs of 16,666 per second is the rate of fire. i.e. if it could hold that many rounds, it could discharge them in one second.Originally Posted by wildstallion
So that basically means it cannot fire 16,666 a second as it hasnt got the capability to store enough bullets, therefore the handgun cannot fire 16,666 rounds in one second!Originally Posted by Tetrode
They put it this way to indicate the rate of speed the bullets can leave the barrel - you have to do the math.Originally Posted by wildstallion
Anyway, here is a clearer explanation of the technology (which is still a closely guarded secret).
I believe, it is loosely based on inkjet technology.
these kind of weapon is useful for suicide bombers or kamikaze type, as the target is not trying to evade being hit but rather rushing in to detonate at all cost. so the answer is to impact the target with so many projectile that it disintegrates before hitting home.
Yes, as I was wondering, shooting so fast, where's the time to aim and shoot at each target.
If it could hit 240,000 individual targets in a minute, then will be fun, but is this just a spray?
Metal Storm is developing weapon systems for unmanned ground vehicles and possibly base defense turret systems, utilising a saturation spread to defeat incoming mortars/RPGs/rockets, or simply deter a large group from entering the compound.
The system uses electrical pulses to ignite and fire the rounds, not chemicals, thus allowing for this phenomenal ROF.
This is in conjunction with DARPA, STK and DSTA.STK provides the airburst munitions for this test.DARPA is the integration agency for the platforms, IIRC.

for those familiar with MG firing. Imagine sweeping a traverse target (eg: a charging infantry platoon). When you sweep the MG with a faster firing rate will mean you would cover more damage in the same sweep than one with a slower firing rate.

this is just like how it was in the Aliens II movie!
I read from a gun mag a few years ago:Originally Posted by LazerLordz
The mechanism for firing is very similar to your inkjet printer head.
Multiple projectiles are loaded into a single barrel, such that primer+charge is behind bullet, behind primer+charge, behind bullet, behind primer+charge etc.. (basically just stack 'em up)
Tiny electrical pulses, driven by computer, fires the primer/charge at a specific location along a barrel; just like inkjet printer squirting a drop of ink out of a specific printhead.
No moving parts since electrically fired not mechanically fired (hammer)...
All you need to do is to cluster a whole mother-load of barrels together, and hey presto! "METAL STORM.."
Also in the mag: There was a multi-barrel pistol prototype, which allowed the firer to select between "normal" or "less-than-lethal" shot... As the article said, it's like Judge Dredd..

Good saying dude. Anyway, tax-payers money is free for them to do whatever they want, right?Originally Posted by newbiegrapher
Well this wonderful. Get my hands on a couple of these and they would sell like hotcakes in East L.A.Originally Posted by anka
The Romans believed that one shouldn't kill ones nemesis, for if your nemesis is dead there is no one to demonstrate your superiority. Killing is the act of a coward, to allow life is to show power.
I think they wanna make sure no 1 can use the MAtrix trick to evade the shots
you are right about the british terms. but we are now singapore armed forces! 'bo bo' is used here and we all know what it means. try saying 'wo wo' shooter here and you will get strange stares..Originally Posted by Tetrode
'bo bo' makes alot more sense to us, when we say 'bo tiok target! bo tiok target!' or simple 'bo! bo!'
(all of us regardless cheena, malays, indians, or local born eurasians who served before all
know what 'bo bo' means)
hokkien peng so wat? combat fit, can run fast, obey orders = good soldier.
kinda reminds me of the ending in the show Ying Xiong (Hero?) where Emperor Qin order the volley of arrows on Wu Ming... how many arrows was that...
