Absolutely, but I mean...we're down to trying to bring in boots on the ground in Syria as if that somehow negates the fact that they just used a 3D printer to do something? That should tell you all you need to know about the ridiculous lengths people will go to just so they can attempt to crap on something.

Well it is still under the testing phase and probably something the military is still experimenting with. With partnering with existing heavy duty 3d printer manufacturers and just tell them what to build. 3D printers have revolutionized the industrial sector. Have you seen one build a small house?

What is the material it was made with?

Is it that sturdy?

you do understand that practice rounds function just like real rounds except they don't go boom like the real one do at the end of it trajectory. other wise it would be useless to use them to practice with.that's why they are called practice rounds. they also have gas and flare rounds that don't go boom. they could use those also and prove the weapon works.

This is true, but other projects have actually started to test printing the actual explosives and the rest of the warhead.

This is very likely to the sort of silver bullet that vastly increases lethality, decreases weight, and results in what should be cheaper better weapons that go where they're meant to, have less likelihood of being duds, and are likely much safer to things like mortar crews etc.

It will be weird to see ammunition blowoff panels and etc go the way of the dodo and the tank still chugging along decades after the most recent greatly exaggerated reports of it's demise.
