I've always wondered why our highly advanced military doesn't use a non-leathal
sleeping gas before an invasion.

Or better yet,

make good use of all that doobie they keep confiscating in the war on drugs

How about a small tankette with a .50cal and a couple of 7.62mm mgs for urban combat.
Or how about parasite fighter (same idea as the XF-85 Goblin) but with more compuer guided controls and more conventional design.
Or how about a fling wing fighter like the german version in WWII but with US stealth tech adapted to it to acompany the B-2s and takeout enemyaircraft that might just get a visual lock.
Or how about a light escort carrier with a full battle arm of its own (MK 41 VLS, MK 15 Phalanx, Mk 45 5in guns, AGM-84 Harpoons, the works)

Well, I think I found my SMG= the MP5N
But, no handle, flashlight or laserpointer, but along with a Red Dot Scope and Silencer, they can be fitted on, so,

Sure, no bullpup design, but, nea....

Just wanted to clear tha up

My idea would be to have a metal storm ship board gun equiped with rail-gun technology. I don't exactly now how it would work but It definetly would be super cool.

Well you could increase the range by combineing the two, it would just be bigger and have a long rane. Say i dunno a grenade launcher with a range of about 200 miles??? ouch! dont think the grenade will last that long.

I think its all about kinetic weapons now.

Imagine huge solid Tungsten Spikes, maybe 20-25 feet long, 12 in diameter sitting in rail guns or mag-pulse guns on satellites a 100 miles up. Send those badboys shooting at a target at many, many thousands of miles per hour. Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, could withstand a hit. The target would be vaporized. Bunkers would be useless, no matter how deep or fortified. And all this with no war head, just plain and simple kinetic energy.

The crazy thing is, this tech isnt out of our reach. Its a money thing. And btw, this tech is under development as we speak. I bet we will see these or something similar within the next 20 years. Operational.

Maybe 40 spikes per satellite, few dozens of these up there. Possibly with sister satellites armed with lasers for missile defense.

Any country with this arrangement would have ownership of their foes, the world even. Imagine knowing there is a weapon sitting above you head, out of your reach that can at any time, at will, destroy anything in your land. And you couldnt defend against it or hide from it. With no radiation or after effects. The ultimate clean weapon.

You know its against international law to have space based weapons? Its designed to prevent exactly this kind of stuff. But the US is developing it anyways.

Man the future is a scary place. I know this is going to sound weird, but: If techs like this are going to be developed by somebody, I am certainly glad I live in the country that will most likely own it

Yeah aint it good feeling that america has those weapons..........
BTW i reaserched the whole rods from god idea, and one of my own ideas in that area
. I found out that you couldnt make it work, the whole atosmosphere gets in the road, i mean a rodgoing at 4K/m per second hitting the atmosphere is going to be like hitting something solid, i doubt its gona be able to surivive that, most likely burn up or break up.

They can work around that Im certain. I bet the largest difficulty would be guidance after impacting the atmosphere Im sure a solid tungsten rod traveling at thousands of mph would get through intact. Pierce it like a needle through a baloon! They could also maybe manage a simular tech from near space maybe. If they could lighten the rail gun tech a bit, maybe smaller rods. Im sure they will push this until they can deploy it or prove beyond all doubt its impossible or impracticle. Way to lethal of a weapon to not research it to death.

What if you could funnel the energy from a nuclear blast and aim it in several directions? That way one nuke could fry specific targets. Probably some special kind of rods at the center of a blast would direct the energy: and it wouldn't have to be heat, just like a concentrated microwave oven

Tuatara,

Thats basically the idea behind lasers. So in a way, thats a "common" tech. After all, laser are concentrated light/energy and burn stuff up. I bet you will see ALOT of laser based weapons in the next decade hit the battlefield

Dude remember the stresses getting put on the rod and the whole atmosphere, remember its not peirceing a balloon its like pierceing a brick. Also it goes at 2500MPH on 4 metre rails now lets say this was a control rod from a nuke reacotor, uranium 238, this would need to be fired in a 2 stage delivery system. 1st the rail gun fireing the transport vehicle and 2nd being seperation of the transport vehicle. (well thats one of my ideas)
Going from 0 to 2500 mph is not good on stress levels.

Its pretty light really, stick it on a blimb if you wanted, a pretty vunerable blimb but still a good platform to fire off.

what if there was an incoming barrage of missiles, the real one hidden among 6-8 drones? then one small nuke with rods pointed at each could take them all out!

Just trying to imagine an effective way to use a nuke beyond its normal blast range. And I can imagine that the blast range might be smaller in space. Another expanding idea on this note: If it can be used this way, then space debri or even satellites could be cleared.

I meant having the super rapid launching capability of metal storm launching regualar land bombarding shells. Like say the DD-X destroyer's EM guns just think if it could fire really fast that's alot of destructive power. Athough that would take a lot electricity, and when I think about it I don't know if we even need that much firepower, cool idea thought.

The guns on there ARE rail guns, all you really need is the ships tubines and some capacitors, i mean you could have 7 shots a minute each fireing a projectile at about 2 km/s ouch.

What the military needs is a better "wall of defence" that can fire about 30 shots per minute for a few minutes to keep enemies at bay. It would work well in the navy against other ships, because they would sink quite quickly.


Otherwise we need a few ships like Promeotheus [Stargate] that are able to attack, defend and deploy.

My idea would be to have a small unmanned rotor craft that can fit through small open windows and then search for enemy's hiding out in public buildings. It would also have small cannons and a couple of rocket pods for defense and to use to kill insurgents inside the building's.

I just thougth of the coolest idea, how about an all electric battleship?

It would use the DDX's intergrated power system for propulsion, and like the DDX it would transfer electricity from the engine's to the guns. Just think of huge 16 in rail guns, it would take a lot of electricity but when they fired WOW that would be some awesome destruction! But of course you have to count in the recoil after it fired, but maybe if they could control it somehow it would work what do you guys think?

My idea would be to have a helicopter that is armed with those metal storm gun pods on the bottom hull of the copter. Also on the weapon rack thingy I would have like 15 joint common missile's on each weapon rack. These weapon rack's would be bigger than most racks but they would also be able to retract in to a compartment in the helicopter. So if they neede'd to be stealthy the huge rack wouldn't show. I would also have a rocket pod inside the helicopter's body near the cockpit right above the bottom hull. These rockets would be for more heavily armored vehicle's, like armored fighting vehicle's or APC's. And on top of that I would have an 30MM electro-magnetic chain gun and some smaller rocket pods on the rack, these would be for really light armored vehicles like anti- air craft artillery, or artillery rockets.

It would also be equipped with a uav launching dock thing so it could send out mini drones to scout the area it was about to go into before it did go into it. That way it could be warned of any AA guns, or mobile SAM's that were in the area.


please some one comment on this or I'll be felling like this

Blue cell can i ask , what size are the rails?
And you do know that you'll need a capacitor to reach the necessary power, right?

Of course I do, and according to the info I found about the regular 16 in guns the barrel was 800 Inch's long so I imagine the rail's would around that long. Sorry I don't know that much about how rail guns, or regular guns work, I just know the basic stuff.
