A new revolutionary bullet being designed for the U.S. military is about to have radical Muslims all over the world wetting their pants.
America has always been known as a nation that has the latest, hottest, and most deadly technology and weapons around, and this new kind of ammunition continues that proud tradition.
Seriously, Mr. Jihadist. I’d hate to be you right now.
According to the Daily Mail, the U.S. military recently tested the first bullet that can successfully change directions in mid-air with a .50 caliber sniper round. This opens the door for snipers to take – and hit – nearly impossible shots.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) commented on the mind-bending bullet.
“For military snipers, acquiring moving targets in unfavourable conditions, such as high winds and dusty terrain commonly found in Afghanistan, is extremely challenging with current technology.”
A bullet that has the capability such as this one will enable snipers to engage targets faster, with better accuracy and bring new levels of safety to snipers. A missed shot can leave a sniper’s whereabouts compromised and with this bullet they have a much larger range in which they’re able to hit their targets, according to Darpa.
That. Is. AWESOME!
If a bullet that can change directions in midair isn’t enough to make every terrorist on earth scream with fear, then perhaps the fact this new ammo will be in the hands of the most highly skilled, highly trained military professionals in the world will.
Having top of the line gear, tech, and ammunition is critical in helping our troops maintain an advantage over our enemies, who want nothing more than to destroy our country.
I can’t wait to see what other neat “toys” our men and women in uniform get to play with next!
