9 Most Deadly Modern Weapons in 2020 – Let’s look at the ten most dangerous and deadly weapons in the world, created by mankind. You will not be surprised that all these weapons are inventions of the 20th century, although some of their ancestors can be traced back thousands of years.
9 Most Deadly Modern Weapons in 2020
MilitaryEzyInfo.com offers you a brief overview of the most terrible and deadly types of modern weapons.
9. Extended bullets
Also known as “unfolding” or “dum-dum bullets”. They have more killing power than ordinary bullets, as there is no chance of a bullet being shot: when hit, the bullet “unfolds” like a flower, tearing apart internal organs. It is very difficult to retrieve such a bullet.
8. Chlorine and its derivatives.
Chemical weapons were banned after World War I because they have a huge radius of destruction: it is enough to put gas on the battlefield, and in a few minutes all those present wills “go”. However, despite all the prohibitions, there is evidence that mustard gas and other chlorine derivatives are sold on the black market and may be available to terrorists.
7. Barbed wire
Simple and very effective. Barbed wire was used everywhere during World War I – to overcome it, a soldier must straighten, that is, become an accessible target. Even more terrible is the prospect of getting entangled in the ‘thorn’ under enemy bullets and waiting for the right death.
6. Depleted uranium
This is what remains after uranium enrichment. Depleted uranium can be used as a shield against radiation, in addition, its high density makes this metal suitable for the production of strong armor. However, when reacting with oxygen, depleted uranium explodes in a fireball, spreading the tiniest radioactive particles, which, when inhaled, enter the lungs of soldiers and cause a lot of unpleasant consequences, up to cancer.
Three in one: it ignites well, burns for a long time, smoking black smoke and burning oxygen, sticking to any surface, continuing to burn. Napalm is produced by condensing gasoline. It was most actively used during the Vietnam War. Terrible thing.
4. White phosphorus
Despite the UN ban, white phosphorus has been used and is still used in military conflicts. Most often it is used to create a smokescreen. When it reacts with air, it explodes and burns at temperatures above one thousand degrees. It causes very severe burns and poisons to death.
3. Cassette bombs
Cassette bombs are multiple rounds of ammunition for the same or different purposes, packed in the same bomb. They cover a large territory, destroying both the enemy and the civilian population. Random victims account for over 90 percent of the weapon’s “effect”.
2. Nuclear weapons
Of the 16,000 nuclear warheads existing in the world, 90% are in Russia and the United States, the rest are shared by France, China, the UK, Pakistan, India, Israel, and North Korea. The existing nuclear stock on Earth is not enough to destroy our planet, but it will definitely be enough for all of us.
1. RGH rockets
They look like cluster bombs, but they are stuffed with nuclear shells, each of which can aim at a target independently. The appearance of the technology of the creation of missiles with separating head part in the 60s of the last century significantly aggravated the arms race. Nowadays, the USA has at least two RSH systems, one of which contains 3 warheads and the other – 12. Anyone of these systems can easily defeat Europe.
