It's an amazing capability, but there's no discussion of resupply/reloading, or how to secure it's great sensors. The sensors aren't worth a hoot when the battery dies. Perhaps I'm showing my roots as a traditionalist here.

It may well be a great concept, that has no practical use in this stage of development. I had hoped for more input, and I thank you for yours!

Also, at the 1,000,000 rpm rate of fire they purport is possible, it does not have the capability for much sustained fire. If it is set out in an ambush situation, I don't see this system producing 100% casualties. And whoever does survive is going to be calling in every airplane and artillery piece to destroy that damn thing.
I think it is a solution looking for a problem. But, unlike other solutions looking for problems (i.e., in chronological order, the machine gun, the light machine gun and the submachine gun) this thing will never find the problem it is seeking to fix. The days of going toe to toe with a first class power on the field of battle are past in this age of globalization. I'll stop right here before I get too political. I hate it when that happens.

Why not a self propelled rapid fire weapon?
