What ‘Future’ Weapons Is Science Dreaming Up?

In March, 2016, the US Army demonstrated a laser weapon “still in development” which is code for “we already have it.” Billions of dollars are earmarked annually for “Black” programs too secret for taxpayers to know what their money is being spent on. And that’s (probably) good. So, what information is actually out there? Turns out, there are some mind blowing weapons scientists have already been able to create that would make even Darth Vader tip his hat. Oh. Wait…

Heat Rays

A few years back, a CBS reporter stood up to a new “Heat Ray” device intended for crowd control – for about a second. Had he stood there any longer, he would have been fried from the inside out. Unofficial reports from some battlefields in Iraq indicate the weapon has been tested in combat. That’s why you can’t put eggs in a microwave…

Hyper Stealth Weapons

After the Bin Laden assassination mission, the world was stunned when the charred remains of a Stealth Helicopter were left behind after it crashed. Since then it’s been revealed that Stealth Tech has been extended well beyond the spy plane scenario. Right on down to the Jeep…

Electromagnetic Rail Guns

Here’s one weapon still in the Sci-fi realm – we think. The idea is to have a gun fire a “bullet” at double its current high speed using just electricity and guided to its target by a rail system. That means no gunpowder or propellant. So far, declassified reports have hinted that the technology exists, but, without sturdier materials encasing the “barrel” of the gun, its repeated use is not effective enough to warrant actual battlefield deployment. Exactly what they said about the Winchester…

Space Weapons

Since the launch of a beeping bowling ball called Sputnik, the high ground has been space. Since then, moonwalks and lousy renditions of David Bowie songs aside, it’s still the primary goal. Despite NASA acting all proud it invented Tang, the US government has been secretly developing space weapons that will shield the Northern Hemisphere, while blowing the other half of the globe off the map. And it won’t be accomplished by throwing Moon rocks…

Hypersonic Cruise Missiles

The hypersonic jet is already a reality, with a test aircraft reportedly exceeding Mach 6 speeds. Imagine firing a hypersonic cruise missile from it. That’s Mach 12. Not only would you not see it coming, you’d already be blown to bits before you even heard it going…

Sentient Unmanned Vehicles

Military “pilots” of unmanned bombers flying the aircraft from thousands of miles away have been grappling with their conscience at bedtime. What if the anguishing decision to drop bombs and launch missiles were left up to a robot able to tell in a split second the difference between friend and foe? Problem solved…

Aircraft Weaponry

Fighter Jocks are the Captain of the Football Team equivalent in all the US military branches, despite public admiration for peaceful astronauts growing daisies in space. The USAF intends to give them a new ball to play with by 2020, by arming X-51s with laser weapons. If a war does break out by then, expect a whole new breed of cheerleader. And Homecoming Queen…

Rocket Weapons

This type of weaponry is most well-known to Sci-Fi fans and the general public. But, its technology is now reportedly being employed on weapons not intended for space flight. We’re talking Rocket Torpedoes, folks. Has that even been thought of before? Go ahead. Look it up…

Laser Weapons

The Holy Grail of military weapons has, apparently, become a reality. The main barrier has been scaling down the technology to a handheld version. Just like in the development of the ballistic rifle, the laser pistol is not far behind. In fact, like most of this “futuristic” military weapons tech, it’s probably already here…
