Smart 'auto aim' rifle lets snipers shoot from more than half a MILE away

Post  wyatt1 on Tue May 20, 2014 10:32 pm

User RatedRR shoots a smartphone with a smart rifle from 1km away


Precision Guided Firearms (PGFs) that can automatically aim at targets? Terrifyingly, there’s an app for that.

Known as TagTrackXact (TTX), Texas firm TrackingPoint’s software is used to enable an advanced array of weaponry.

And in a new video, one YouTube user shows how TTX lets him hit a smartphone with a rifle from one kilometre (0.62 miles) away.

Bloody Hell,  smartphones might be annoying but I think buying that lot just to get rid of one is a bit much.  


I can think of more deserving targets .     Suspect   Twisted Evil

Didn't a Brit soldier get two Taliban at a mile and a half away a few years ago?

He did indeed. With a proper sniper rifle it can be done.

Knowing little of the things to be taken into account at these distances and how long the bullet takes to travel it, well I have no idea about targetting anyway, I was intrigued to find out that the earth's rotation is one of those things.

Wind, humidity,  angle of sunlight if any and whether shooting uphill or downhill,  but a lot is instinct and not everyone has it. You can feel the bullet on its way to the target, strange but as I say not everyone has it.
