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...

Most people don't understand exactly what a longobws purpose was. It wasn't to kill knights, though if it penetrated a gap or weak point in the armor it certainly could. It was meant to kill horses thus unmounting the knight at least if not trapping, crippling, or killing them outright.

Once the opposing armies charge was swarmed under a rain of arrows as the longbow had both range and rate of fire, the real killing would be done by the English knights who usually fought dismounted, billmen with their bill hooks with could easily penetrate armor, or the yeoman bowman themselves using long daggers to stab through gaps and weak points in the armor.

Longbowmen also didn't draw and fire from quiver. They stuck the arrows point first into the ground and took them from there. It was faster to draw and shoot that way.

There are still so many IF's involved with this jet, its lack of maneuverability and speed will cost it dearly in visual range encounters against Russias stable of speed demons

And in a real war, there WILL be visual range engagements, all of the F-35s sensors wont do it much good when a bunch of our satellites get taken out

Having said that, such a high-tech weapon with this ability is pretty damn cool, they can stage these "jump jet" variants in all kinds of small, farflung places

First is that the Tartars and Cossacks of the Ukraine and Crimea used lassos in battle to lasso and pull down cavalry and the wings prevented that. Another is that the ostrich feathers in the wings made a whistling sound at full gallop which unnerved horses not used to it. A final theory is that is was simply for flamboyance and to strike fear into the opposing army as the Winged Hussars were the premier cavalry in their age.

Great post, Delaney... when watching those rounds impact, you'd never guess they carry no explosives

To have that kind of destructive ability sans explosives is truly revolutionary, its basically a Rod from God that doesnt have to be lugged into space

They seem to be hitting a few snags with consistently and reliably powering them up with, the compromise might be using conventional powder propellants that allow the round to still move twice as fast as a conventional round while they decipher the electrical power problem

I was just watching a documentary on the development of the SU-27, and noticed this:





The side profile from mid-point forward are very similar between the YF-23 and Su-27.
