Interesting times we live in. I think I'll invest in some drone "nets".

Exactly.

I wonder what nasty little surprises our friends the Chinese have in store for us?

And as a backup,, Bring back the Flechette round for the free floaters..

The 105mm launched 7,000-9,000 darts, at 300 yds the pattern was 300 yds wide.

We are talking Crowd Pleasers..

For the 12ga crowd,, but I think 3inch #6 shot would do as well??

I got to 3rd Ranger Batt in 1989 and they were still humping the “stovepipe”. I eventually got to fire a flachette round. We always kicked off our ambushes with the “90” and always an honor to help carry it on road marches (but difficult because the 90 teams were very proud)


M590 Antipersonnel Canister

The Antipersonnel (Canister) Cartridge M590 (XM590E1) or M590 cartridge is a flechette round designed for close-in defense against massed infantry attacks. The cartridge consists of an aluminum cartridge case crimped to an aluminum canister. The canister consists of a thin-walled, deep-drawn, aluminum body that contains a payload of 2,400 eight-grain (0.5 g), low-drag, fin-stabilized, steel-wire flechettes. When the canister leaves the muzzle, the pressure ruptures the canister along inscribed score marks to release the flechettes, which disperse in a cone angle of approximately 8 degrees.

Cartridge weight: 6.79 lb (3.08 kg)
Cartridge length: 19.19 in (487 mm)
Projectile weight: 3.97 lb (1.8 kg)
Muzzle velocity: 1,250 ft/s (381 m/s)
Maximum effective range: 328 yd (300 m)

I remember firing flechete rounds out of the 106mm recoiless in the Q. Kept a couple of them in my soft cap for years but they have finally disappeared.

Had them for the M-79, too, but weren't they banned in VN?
