PAPOP 2

The redesign of the original version of this weapon is a vast improvement.

Here is the number scheme:
1. Assault rifle (5.56 mm)
2. Grenade launcher
3. Orientable screen
4. Camera
5. Laser designator and telemeter
6. Batteries and computer
7. Weapon selector

The weapon fires an undersized round from inside a 5.56mm standard NATO round that has an outer sabot that rips away shortly after leaving the muzzle. It has an incredible muzzle velocity of 1800 meters per second. The grenades are 35mm and have different explosive yields and different shrapnel dispersion patterns that can be programmed and then set by the computer for a given target.

From your friends,

from the research ryo have done on this rifle, it seem to have very good capabilities. it shoots very far. it is accurate to 600 meters. it use computer control targeting too. the rifle also feeds information out to other units and even another rifle can take the shot base on the information from a different rifle. it is a little heavy, but it's a lot lighter that the original idea for the PAPOP, which weighed over 8 kg. usually only two grenade are loaded into the grenade magazine, but for some operations it can hold as many as 5 grenades, however this does add a considerable amount of weight. it's a really high tech weapon and like heisenberg teaches us, if there is a need for this very high tech solution then they will still have a need for a lower tech solution too neh.

I don't want any computers or batteries on my rifle. Mechanical I can fix it to fire. This is crazy.

PAPOP is one of several of these high tech rifles being developed around the world today. Beretta in Italy, FN Herstal in Belgium, Crane here in the states, Howa in Nihon, and Singapore Technical Industries in Singapore are all developing this fire and forget, guided bullet assault rifles.
