The U.S Pentagon has been tasked with creating new technologies, and has done so by creating a new drone that can carry out a mission without a human pilot. These drones can talk to other drones to collaborate on getting the job done. The drones are capable of withstanding ejection at speeds of up to Mach 0.6 and temperatures as low as minus 10 degrees Celsius. These Perdrix drones have abilities such as collective decision-making, adaptive formation flying, and self-healing. The U.S Pentagon and the Department of Defense have revolutionized the technologies used by the United States military.
In the Vietnam war, the U.S helped South Vietnam in 1975. The northern half of Vietnam was supported by China and the Soviet Union. The Soviets had mass produced amounts of armors, (High Class Military Tanks), and the U.S need a way to penetrate their systems. This led to the invention of the “Raytheon M47 Dragon Portable Wire-Guided Anti-Tank Missile System”, or M47 Dragon for short (millitaryfactory.com). This shoulder-fired system anti-tank had a hollow charge warhead directed by a guided wire for maximized control. In conclusion, this system has been very useful in weapon history.
The Type 99 Arisaka “The Type 99 was one of the standard bolt-action combat rifles to be utilized by the Empire of Japan during the Second World War.” The Type 99 had a fragile looking monopod under the fore grip for added stability. The new Type 99 Arisaka was supposed to replace the commonly used Type 38 due to the higher caliber of the 7.7x58mm ammo cartridge used in the modified Arisaka. The Type 99 never fully replaced the Type 38 as it was intended to do.
The Blunderbuss “The Blunderbuss (born of the Dutch word "Donderbus", appropriately meaning "Thunder Pipe" or "Thunder Gun") came to prominence in the early part of the 18th Century (1701-1800) and was more akin to the modern day shotgun than a "long gun" musket or heavy pistol of the time.” The Blunderbuss was mostly used for Naval warfare. It is more like a shotgun than a musket. The Blunderbuss is a short ranged weapon.
