Unique Military Weapons

Cant recall ever seeing a thread on this topic so i thought it was time we had one... this thread is dedicated to military weaponry of any kind, from any era or nation.

There is a seemingly endless array of novel, fascinating, revolutionary or even ill-fated hardware out there so subject material shouldnt be a problem.

First entry coming up shortly...

a couple of minutes later the B-52s came Hell, you could barely see the con trails they were so high.....and then the bombing started.

My God in heaven....the earth was actually shaking....and everyone in my unit was SCREAMING.....Lordy but those things were effective.

20 Minutes later - the jungle and the canopy in front of us (1,000 yards) was gone - and so was every living thing with it...from that point on, when we left the fire base to head out - we were all hoping that those damned '52s were too busy to help us if we needed them....
The days before bombs were 'smart' must've been unimaginably scary... all you could do was hope the bombardier knew what the hell he was doing

I can't imagine 40 tons of bombs x the number of 52s would be like impacting the ground nearby.

In the 80s one of the boats I was on, the USS Narwal (SSN 671) hosted the WWII vet of the former USS Narwhal (SS 167) and we got to hear from one of the crew members what it was like to be depth charged. I don't think it was as loud as what you had happen, but the one NarVet just laughed and said "if you stood it was like you had Elvis Presley crazy legs."

The military applications of this are clear to see IMO, particularly when they figure out how to put a set of wings on it and control it better, as the guy here talks about

In 10-15 years we'll be hearing about Delta/SEAL types using this technology while wearing temperature controlled, automatic wound treating exoskeleton suits, with heads-up display visor helmets that give them total awareness of the battlefield like an F-35
