Russian police have a new “non-lethal weapon” for crowd control at protests. Tear gas and pepper spray sometimes are lethal and tasers kill at an alarming rate here in the states. Water cannons would kill by the hundreds in the Russian winter…if they didn’t freeze solid first. Thus the Russian weapons designers have come up with the 22mm, fully automatic, pneumatic badminton birdie launcher.
It launches birdies with a 300 atmospheres of pressure blast of air either one at a time or fully automatic. This ought to give the Russian constabulary the upper hand…unless the Russian tennis team joins the protests.
Be seeing you.
