Secret missile doesn’t explode, but brandishes knives to shred target

"Both the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon have used the weapon while closely guarding its existence. A modified version of the well-known Hellfire missile, the weapon carries an inert warhead. Instead of exploding, it is designed to plunge more than 100 pounds of metal through the tops of cars and buildings to kill its target without harming individuals and property close by.

To the targeted person, it is as if a speeding anvil fell from the sky, the officials said. But this variant of the Hellfire missile, designated as the R9X, also comes equipped with a different kind of payload: a halo of six long blades that are stowed inside and then deploy through the skin of the missile seconds before impact to ensure that it shreds anything in its tracks."

This is extreme as F.

Yeah, there’s a lot of crazy things out there. Like shaped charges for instance, which essentially blow a small hot charge that smelts copper into a directional liquid spear and shoots it through armor which it pierces like butter. When it enters the hull of the vehicle the temperature inside immediately spikes to thousands of degrees and the thermal shift boosts pressure and creates an explosion. With that in mind, watch this incredible video about a recently banned bomb from textron that the US created and has used since the cold war:


America, fuck yeah!
