Didn't they unveil this like 4 years ago?

Although, I still think it's cool as shit and I would love to see the first production shoulder fired designs.

Friggen lasers and railgunz, still no hoverboard...

Seems like an incredible waste of money, to me. Unless there's a cost/benefit analysis I'm missing.

7300 FPS. Sounds like a good varmint round. Cost benefit? Have you priced powder lately? Wink

If you watch the video it mentions it costs a fraction of what a standard missile costs.

Eliminating the need for explosives aboard ship ( thereby reducing the risks of secondary explosions if attacked), the ability to run smaller vessels with more firepower and less crew, and a projectile that can't be intercepted by enemy missile defense means less fired rounds and more enemies destroyed per shot. That seems a lot more efficient.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

Probably at least tens of millions in R&D. Remember though this can supposedly do more than a missile can. It appears to be more flexible than missiles.
