 New report: shoulder mounted weapons will cause brain damage to users.


According to the US star and stripes 2 reports, according to the latest research report of the new American security center of the think tank, the explosion overpressure produced by the launch of shoulder - type weapons will lead to brain damage, such as loss of memory or difficulty in decision-making. Such dangerous weapons include the US Armys Karl Gustav recoil gun, AT4 anti tank rocket launcher and 12.7 mm large caliber anti equipment rifle. The report says that since 2000, The Pentagon has been tracking and studying brain damage on the battlefield, but mainly focused on the damage of the improvised explosive devices, ignoring the harm of the shoulder - type weapons. According to the simulated tests of pigs and rats in the Journal of neurotrauma, the explosion pressure of these weapons is enough to cause animal brain hemorrhage. In animal tests, the symptoms of brain damage sometimes occur only after 3 launches, and our soldiers have much higher frequencies in daily training, and sometimes more than 20 times a day. The report recommends that the US Army immediately limit the number of daily launches of such shoulder type weapons and minimize the damage to soldiers. The wearable devices that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is developing may also come in handy. It can record the soldiers operational experience and the severity of the explosion, and remind the medical and ambulance personnel to check the possible brain damage of the wounded in time. In addition, the US Army is developing a full face helmet, which reduces the impact on the brain by 80% when it explode. (Wu Yan) source: Global Times - World Wide Web.
