    Wouldn't they explode things better if they were shot in a straighter line, since they're relying on impact velocity?

    Very cool, I been watching this tech develop for years now. Looks like they are finally getting it to be reliable! Love kinetic projectiles was never a fan of the chemical laser program. I think I'm like you @sun rise , I just like things that go boom!

    The highrr the velocity, the lower the trajectory.

    It becomes even easier to kill people we hate, & ensure numerous
    long term enemies. Easy to use weapons with distant effects
    divorce us from personally experiencing the horror.

    This is useful, but has the risk of leaders losing all inhibition.
    Should we trust them with ever greater power?
    We've already seen this phenomenon as leaders treat war
    & regime change as something easy, predictable, & merely
    a matter of what suits our purpose.
