Metal Storm and iRobot team up

    Metal Storm seems to have survived the … uuuggghhh … storm. This video shot by the US Navy (who funds Metal Storm research) shows a Metal Storm FireStorm 40mm grenade launcher mounted on a iRobot 710 Warrior unmanned ground vehicle.

    The four barreled FireStorm holds 24 40mm grenades.

    [ Many thanks to Daniel Watters for emailing me the vid. ]

    I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!
