Gene Simmons, eat your heart out. It would seem that guided bullet technology is close to coming to fruition. I doubt that this technology will be able to perform miracles. You’ll still likely need to get the bullet somewhere in the neighborhood of a man sized target, with the bullet doing the real precision work. Any change in bullet’s trajectory is going to dissipate energy and reduce range, and you’d need range to be able to affect a large change in the point of impact. I’d say that for shooting people at ranges under 500 yards, this isn’t likely to replace plain, ordinary bullets anytime soon. I’d also imagine the bullets themselves will be rather pricy. I’d almost imagine you’d be better off using a small, portable mortar launcher, with a guided mortar. If you’re going to incur the cost for guidance, send the enemy something that goes boom.
What do you all think?
