The gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
So, it merely puts a greater premium on accuracy, terminal ballistics and head shots on predatory goblins. There is no individual panacea for .30-06 AP yet.
Oooh. Gotta get me some o' that!An even more practical application for that material might be aircraft windscreens and car windshields.
It may be thin and light, but can you say "blunt force trauma?" Give me a hard plate any day.
quote: ".... MIT's Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies,..."unquoteYou mean to tell me a University has an "institute"..that helps insulate "soldiers" by inventing technology that protects them? Well, by any other standard..that probably appears as a noble endeavor..unfortunately, as we know..eventually these technology's will be used against the citizenry. By virtue of common sense, its also blindingly obvious these type of "institutes" that develop Military capabilities, are also funded by the USG..and as such..means WE pay for the means by which tyranny will ultimately try to kill us. What I don't understand is..as smart as some of these people THINK they are..they don't have a clue to the Law of Unintended Consequence. Perhaps..one day..they them self will discover their folly..at the end of a rifle barrel. Such is the material of my dreams. Along with the digital age..which WILL come back to bite us in the ass...and it's only one huge solar flareup away.
Still some years off from deployment. Anyhow, you should be aiming for heads and groins.
Chunks of titanium drill bits, in hollow points bullets, held by loctite, will penetrate anything.
How is it any different from the situation today when the round is unable to penetrate body armor? The target still has to absorb the momentum of the round. A 180gr .30 cal projectile moving in the vicinity of 3K ft/sec has a LOT of momentum to absorb. Anybody on the receiving end of that isn't likely to be interested in killing anybody for a while. After the firefight they can be dispatched with a .22LR to the head.I also wonder how well the substance would respond to a 62gr M855 SS109 ($499.00/1Krd box on CtD). If sending the projectiles at normal .223 velocities wouldn't do the trick, a 10 cent plastic sabot will let you fire it from a .30 cal in the vicinity of 5K ft/sec. And like the man said, there're always head or groin shots. Although a torso is a whole lot easier to hit than a head.
"Chunks of titanium drill bits, in hollow points bullets, held by loctite, will penetrate anything."Huh-uh. Tungsten dart bodies.
