Apparently these explosively formed penetrators are causing a certain amount of grief to the Amerikan troops overseas. Not hard to see why; they're formed out of plastic, filled with plastique, and have only a couple of metal bits, but are tremendously effective. This Discovery Channel vid raves about them (the hardon this guy gets from things that go boom is one of the reasons I don't watch FutureWeapons), but I have to say, this is the sort of thing that makes a large military force terribly vulnerable. The whole clip amounts to a sales/training manual for guerilla fighters.
