That weapon system is very impressive no doubt, but what happens if the weapon is exposed to an Electo Magnetic Pulse or static discharge of some type on the battle field? I believe that you would be left with nothing more than an expensive paper weight, and those gas operated and inertia operated weapons will still be shooting.
metal storms are usualy just an attachment for a normal rifle.
I've heard Metalstorm has Star Wars applications. Its electromagnetic firing system would be more effective in zero g environment than conventional firearms and the high rate of fire would obliterate an incoming warhead.
Metalstorm debunked Sorry hadn't heard that.
Who's JUN YANG? Min Qiang? Who's the "powerful Chinese bureaucrat" and whom did he contact?
Where did this come from? - "O'Dwyer's concerns are shared by the US government which has classified Metal Storm as a technology which must not fall into the hands of America's enemies…"
And how the hell did they supposedly qualify under SBIR/STTR? It's a small US high-tech business support initiative under DoD cap.
As far as I know last year Metal Storms DoD contract was dumped indefinitely, and their stock has been slipping ever since. For example, from 4+ in Nov 05 they bottomed out at 0.5 in July 06, and slowly climbed to 2.5 in Sept do to some projected UAV/UGV 40mm tests.
However in regards to Ballistic missile defense, a satellite firing rounds tipped with depleted uranium at a rate of 10,000/sec
