this is a video of a variant of the hellfire that has no explosive warhead, but in its place are 6 razor sharp hardened blades pop out and blend the target with a combination of KE and the blades.


I saw pictures a few years ago of a VIP convoy that was hit by these things and it looked rather nasty, but there is no collateral damage so thats a plus.

A long range laser guided or self guiding broadhead. Doesn't harm the surroundings. Nice.

Very interesting. They should line it with ball bearings or shotgun pellets too for some extra oomph.

Why use a low collateral missle on a single vehicle in the desert unless they wanted it revealed or wanted to make sure it was the right person or wanted to have his remains offer a new visual.

Using a ninja bomb doesn't change the fact we executed a foreign national in there country without a trial - in this case it seems necessary but so many others not so much. IDK if making death easier with less bad publicity is really the move for the US.

I'd imagine that anyone who saw the mess left is pissed.

I always liked the idea of a microscopic smart missile that can shoot through a target's head ripping through their body killing em without leaving telltale signs of the attack

I'm all for punishing muslim extremists - where my wife is from, which is a muslim country if you are "too muslim" they send you off to the concentration camps in china.

But I live in a country that has no problems calling sneak attacks cowardly and then does them everyday. Those IED are to drive out invaders from there perspective so which is more just?

If we are willing to kill, we should also be willing to die to do it, personal feeling.

Or maybe I just like the visuals of hearing some religious leader calling death to America right before he hears the sounds of a fleet of b52's.
