 The US army wants soft killing weapons: destroying enemy tanks but not hurting civilians.


The United States Army faces a problem, the reference news network reported on May 7th by the American Journal of national interest, published by Michael Peck in April 28th, army to destroy tanks but not to destroy a city. In urban combat, if armored forces meet enemy armored vehicles, these vehicles need to be suppressed. The problem is that any explosive powerful enough to destroy enemy tanks - such as the Russian T-14 amaga tanks - could destroy the surrounding buildings and civilians. Therefore, the army wants a soft kill weapon that destroys tanks without destroying the urban area. The social and political impact of collateral damage, especially the type of damage caused by traditional anti armored weapons, makes these armored soldiers more and more difficult to fight with light armored vehicles, the Army Research Collection said lightly. But the army has another idea: instead of blowing up enemy armored cars and surrounding urban neighborhoods, why not use some kind of non lethal microwave weapons to destroy them? Interestingly, the army believes that the remote control weapon station of armored vehicles is their Achilles heel. The remote control weapon station enables the occupants of American Striker and other vehicles to safely launch external weapons inside the armored vehicle. Take the Russian amagta tank as an example, the crew can operate turrets inside the tank. The army explained that these remote control weapon stations often have a strong ability to provide vision, ranging and weapon stability. He said: if we can interfere with the detection equipment or destroy the stability, then the risk of the armored troops and civilians who have already gotten off the train will be greatly reduced. If the entire electronic equipment of the remote control weapon station is disturbed, the basic launch function will fail. Another weakness is to target the maneuverability of vehicles, such as engines. The army said: it is extremely important that these systems should not be considered fatal to spectators. However, this anti - armored weapon also needs to have enough range - more than 100 yards (1 yards for about 0.9 meters) - to keep the soldiers from heavy armored vehicles far enough. Its weight must be less than 5 pounds, and it can suppress enemy vehicles in less than 5 minutes. In addition, the army solicitation book shows that such weapons should also be able to target buildings.
