Yes, they are not fire and forget like other new munitions. They are sub-caliber sabot round to reduce a bit of the shock at firing, and to deploy the fins for guidance.I would imagine this bullet detects some sort of encrypted signature in the laser beam? Otherwise you could turn the tables on someone real quick.
I agree. From what I know of it, it can be integrated, if nothing else, it can put/hold the laser spot down while something carrying a heavier weapon can fire and move away.I could see it improved for drones to have almost sniper capabilities. Right now they just carry big missles. Would be nice to just kill 1 person in a group rather then have to blow the whole group up.
I enjoy shooting waterfowl on the wing. Does that make me a redneck?Plus firing from a drone in the sky would give it 10 to 20 times the range because it would have its natural velocity of falling. Like when the rednecks fire their guns up in the air and it actually makes a big arc and hits some full speed coming down.
