[This is another article suggested by Danny Ashton - Thanks again, Danny!]
This is similar to his last article (the "Deadliest Robots" one). This one is Sci Fi weapons. Unlike the robots, ALL of these are real (that was true of only three of the robots)!
So next time you need to go all Rambo on someone, you can do it in high-tech, sci-fi style with this list!
The XM-25 Airburst Weapons System (Grenade Launcher) - can be programmed to explode at any distance up to 700 meters, or on impact. It can be deployed in seconds and attack targets behind cover!
The Railgun - pretty much the definitive sci-fi weapon! Projectiles fire at a velocity that causes air to literally burn!
( Note that the picture in the article is actually taken from a much less… High end project, here )
The so-called "Rods From God" is a space-born weapon system that simply drops 20 foot long tungsten "darts" from several miles above the earth! The energy released on impact is similar to a nuclear blast sans radiation!
