Bullet technology today has been surpassed by the technology of personal body armor and that of vehicle armored plate. A new generation of high power systems is required, that will change current defense paradigms through performance, range and accuracy.
So, high power bullet technology is now reconsidered by Stiletto Systems.
In general, the effectiveness of small arms ammunition depends on the armor-piercing core of ammunition: the quality of core material, its form and importantly the kinetic energy being delivered. According to defence-blog.com, the operating principle of the improved bullet is identical to existing ammunitions except for the fact that it is developed with new bullet design and included new materials for producing.
The company states that developing a new generation of bullets that have 3 parts is designed to revolutionize how bullets impact and pierce targets protected by up to 20.5 mm armor plate.
The company has demonstrated the ability to penetrate modern body armor using small caliber weapons and the ammunition’s abilities against heavy armored plates, indicating that the future soldier may be more than capable of engaging an armored vehicle without recourse to heavy weapons or artillery. This may also result in smaller and lighter payload carried by soldiers.
The significance lies also in more agility yet reduced fatigue of the soldier. Operatives can also carry a variety of different ammunition for different applications to suit the circumstances. An infantry soldier can convert his rifle into a weapon capable of stopping an armored fighting vehicle with a single shot and then switch back to standard ammunition.
