    A brief read-up makes it look very, very similar to BF2142's airburst rockets. Huh.

    edit: More in-depth article here
    edit2: I'd like to point out that said weapon does not only kill "bad guys" behind cover, but, in fact, just kills.

      how quickly we forget where the idea for airburst rounds came from:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Objecti..._Combat_Weapon
      " The idea was refined into a combination of a short assault rifle and semi-automatic, low-velocity cannon firing air-bursting munitions"

          Looks like the military unlocked the PK Rockets and the Voss at the same time.

            Bah, cant wait until the "bad guys" get this in their hands as well... Gonna be maybe a decade but it will happen sooner or later..

                Not to start a debate in GD, but I'd like to point out that the military has been using grenade launchers for decades and we haven't seen bad guys leveling schools with them or anything similar...

                I think you should do some research into what the BATFE considers a 'destructive device'.

                    considering its the usa government they will just do a special money print that day and buy a bunch. Seems to be the new theme of the government.
                    that sounds like a good idea trooper.

                      Print the currency on the ammunition. Then use the new gun to "deliver" the Wall Street bailout. ;)

                        Will this be initially offered just to special forces/specialists or is this going to be something in the arsenal available to soldiers who need it?

                            Imagine the potential for collateral damage. Single piece of lead at 1500 FPS, or expanding sphere of 100 tiny fragments + high pressure shockwave travelling at 1200 FPS, each with it's own peculiar trajectory...wow. Wonder what the penetrating power of the fragments are.

                            I also wonder what the lethality of the airburst is , given different distances and body zones exposed? 3 feet from a guys face=instakill probably, but 5 feet? 15 feet? Or 3 feet above the legs of a prone combatant? Sounds like a design where debilitation and a lot of pain is more likely than traditional ballistic weapons.

                            The most effective weapons against enemies, it has been suggested, are those that maim and injure, but don't kill--higher psychological impact, drains enemies resources to rescue/heal/rehabilitate their troops.

                            Isn't that what gave rise to the Geneva COnvention? Mustard gas in WWII? Speaking of which, don't even try and tell me they don't have a chemical weapon delivery round as well. Perfect gas-dispersion mechanism for lethal or non-lethal chemical agents, wouldn't you think?

                            I bet THAT's where they used the magenta! ;)
