Britain to Start Making Star Trek-Style Force-fields


That is right you heard me. According to the Telegraph, British scientists have come up with a design for an electromagnetic field. According to researchers this field will be able to repel rockets, gunfire and other damaging weaponry as well. Military scientists claim that by using a super-capacitor, they can release waves of electromagnetic energy directly into the armor for a given period of time, greatly slowing down and altering the course of even RPG rounds.

    Electric Reactive Armour? Not force fields by a longshot, but still incredibly promising for anti-RPG defense. Basically any RPG round hitting the armor completes a circuit in the armor, dumping a ridiculous amount of electricity into the round and liquefying (yeah, liquefying a metal and explosive compound is a lot of electricity lol) it to the point of impotence. It’s still a contact-triggered defense, and won’t be as useful against explosions that happen simply in proximity of the armor, like IEDs. Still, it blunts the potential of guerrilla ambushes by a lot.
