One thought on “Trope-a-Day: There Is No Kill Like Overkill

  1. Speaking of overkill a rather boring weekend lead to me running some stats from your IL-15i Battlesystem. If I was anywhere close in my math that standard rifle will have a meat penetration of over 14,000 U.S. miles. I took the mass and size of a grain of sand slug of iron and the (best estimation from you mentioning at one point “significant fraction of the speed of light”) mind-crogling speed of 40% light speed of said slug.

    14,000 Miles of penetration from a single handgun means that it could probably kill the guy and the building he is in.

    Even if I was hilariously off that is one scary common weapon.
