In the US, patented "stopping" bullet

70
Engineers of the US Army Design and Development Center received a patent for a bullet with interrupted flight, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to the website of the American Army.

“A controlled bullet differs from a conventional bullet with a camera with a small powder charge and a slow-motion igniter leading to it. When fired, the powder from the cartridge case ignites the fuse and it smolders during the flight of a bullet. Then the ignition ignites the powder in the chamber, the powder gases pass through the channel of the fuse and create a jet stream, ”the website reports.

According to the developers, "the jet violates the aerodynamic stability of the bullet and it instantly falls to the ground."

The meaning of this invention is that during a miss, the bullet “did not travel for a long time after the shot” and did not hurt innocent citizens. Such ammunition is particularly relevant in the conditions of the city.

According to the developers, "the firing distance can be set by the time of burning the fuse."

“The engineers did not carry out full-scale tests, but modeled on the computer the behavior of 12,7-mm bullets of type M8 and M33. The invention can be applied in any type of ammunition: from bullets of caliber 5,56 millimeter to 155-millimeter artillery shells, ”the publication says.

      Why make a bullet that stops when you miss, if you can make a bullet that does not miss? (Adjustable Ammunition)
      Why stop the bullet if you can detonate it? (ammunition with remote detonation)
      Why make a rocket out of a bullet when you can shoot a rocket?
      If I were to develop such a weapon, I would dwell on one of these options.

      PS
      By the way, I was thinking here - after all, the bullet after being hit will activate the fuse, which will "spit out" the bullet from the victim's body, and even cauterize the wound so that the victim avoids bleeding. Maybe you will immediately shoot at the victim with bandages with an antiseptic?

              And in active combat, how will they adjust the range ?! Or so, by eye !? Well, about 50 meters to the target, takes a horn with bullets with a range of 60 m, shoots, but it bang, made a mistake and the bullet fell a meter away from the target, it would be necessary to release the turn so that you would not be removed, but no, you need to put the horn with bullets on 80m And if God forbid, they didn’t fill up the gunpowder a little, you won’t understand, it’s flying into a lope. You must then run towards the target, shooting in short bursts, you see, the target does not retreat, and some kind of bullet, but it gets where it is needed.
              In my opinion, a useless invention, at least for now.

                laughing Yes this is nonsense - where they will find such exact fuses? Given the average flight speed of a modern weapon bullet 350 m / s - 50 meters is 1/7 second, if 400 m / s - 1/8, rifles are several times higher and the actual flight time of the same 50-100 meters is very different. For the scheme they proposed, they will have to drill bullets, put some kind of charge inside, various gaskets. most difficult balancing - as a result, a smart bullet will be priced like a third of a pistol / rifle. wassat

          Interestingly, the authors of this ingenious invention, thought about what would happen if the bullet still gets, for example, in the abdominal cavity, after which the reactive charge will just ignite. Good guys like that care about people's safety.

          I support - it turned out to be a bullet with a variable trajectory. Pull it into the crowd - strike !!!!

          But seriously - why does she immediately fall to the ground? Maybe because the created jet stream is ejected in the direction opposite to the flight of the bullet? Then the jet should not be pulled out of the fuse channel, but vice versa.
          If you simply violate the aerodynamic stability, it will start to somersault, the flight range will decrease, but it will not "immediately" collapse to the ground.

          Somehow they’ve calculated shitty on the computer ... or the computer was infected ..

        Yes, garbage is all, or the author even did not understand it. Bullet speed, well let 500 m in s. Mass let 9 gr. To stop a bullet, you need to give it energy equal to the energy of the bullet, only with the opposite sign. This is nonsense. In their version, the bullet will lose some part of the energy, lose the stabilization of the flight. T e where the hell will fly and who will kill him

          it will just explode. those. the Americans have developed bullets for the army and police, which will explode when hit into the body, because this is the fragmentation and deformation of the bullet, so on "smoldering?" the fuse will roll the main charge, and an explosion will occur, a small one of course. only the use of such cartridges in the armies and the police is prohibited by the Hague Convention of 1907.

        The corrected bullet will be much more expensive! Exploding a bullet, if innocent people are next to the criminal, also seems to be not worth it. You can make a bullet with a rocket to increase the flight range, but in our case, it will be a brake engine. hi

      in fact, it will be complete crap. The distance may differ from the ignition time (hence undershot). In addition, judging by the development of ammunition (expansive in the form of saws and other crap, now also this one which, after being hit and triggered by a jet stream, will deliver so much torment "), then one gets the feeling that the police are interested in killing the suspect in a perverse way. a safe bullet is one that is not fired from the barrel (not needed) or at least released prudently (a sober-minded shooter).

      Well, not really, the effect you described happens when it enters the body.
      With the described principle of action (in the article), the bullet will simply begin to rotate randomly, it will lose energy unambiguously, but it is unlikely that it would harm it at all.

    Not feasible in the form described. The mass of gunpowder necessary for braking a bullet in a relatively small portion of the trajectory is commensurate with the mass of the bullet itself. Roughly speaking: it’s easier to make the bullet itself out of gunpowder. It flies for two seconds, lights up and evaporates. That's just the hell with whom you kill.

    It is not clear how to solve the problem of triggering the "self-destruction" of a bullet after it hits a person. But they have developed frangible ammunition that does not ricochet and fragment (disperse) when it collides with a solid obstacle. It seems to have been developed specifically for counter-terrorist operations during the hijacking of aircraft, etc. Also shots for knocking out door hinges and locks seem to work.

    Either they translated it wrong or they explained it wrong, but in fact some kind of heresy.
    There are too many questions for such an "invention".
    They would have been from g ... and they would have blinded a bullet.

    "The meaning of this invention is that in the event of a miss, the bullet" does not travel for a long time after the shot "and does not hurt innocent citizens. Such ammunition is especially relevant in the city."
    Who do they want to shoot with this bullet? As I understand it, this is "one-shot" ammunition. If you shoot the presidents? (Or), then yes, there will be no wine people nearby. If you shoot the leaders of any gangs and (etc.), then what kind of innocent are there next?
    So for what purpose is the bullet intended ??

    Why make a bullet that stops when you miss, if you can make a bullet that does not miss? (Adjustable Ammunition)


    Firstly, as one of the commentators, in the spirit of IDT, for money laundering, expressed his opinion,
    Secondly, instead of teaching fighters to shoot well, they take a different path, make falling bullets, because focus on misses and not on an exact hit ... :-)


    I am glad I can’t, how smart they are!

    Second time I hear about "managed pool". Once they even minus me for doubting. Let's source if it was done.

    And the bullet was made "stopping" apparently after a flight of some distance. Maybe after overcoming, for example, a hundred meters. Her kinetic energy is already less, either stops or weakens. And so, up to this distance, it will be dangerous as usual. Doubtful effectiveness will be from this fuss.

    In their version, the bullet will lose some part of the energy, lose the stabilization of the flight. T e where the hell will fly and who will kill him

    -----------------
    I thought about that too. Will get a different kind of ricochet. And there is no guarantee that the "peaceful citizen" will be hurt.


    But the patent is American!
    Patent Americans are stupid.
    NO! patent for Zadornov am

    (Not bullets miss, but people). The price of a stopping bullet is an order of magnitude lower than the adjusted one.

    Why stop the bullet if you can detonate it? (ammunition with remote detonation)

    And hit with splinters of random people.

    Why make a rocket out of a bullet when you can shoot a rocket?

    The price of a stopping bullet is an order of magnitude lower than the rocket.

      Can be made cheaper and easier. Just ammo of different power. For example, one cartridge per 50 m, the other 100 m. The main thing is not to confuse the stores at the right time.

    Someone threw a good idea at the Americans, enough time to work out!
    Yes, if even if with the options outlined here - cut, do not cut!
