Fresh roasted Iraqi's anyone?
(A soldier holding the PHaSR rifle)
No, this isn't something out of a live-action Buck Rogers movie, this is actually the PHaSR(Personal Halting and Stimulation Response) rifle. This little piece of equipment can be aimed at a target and used to blind any biological entity; in this case, it's Iraqi's.
The weapon's effects seem to be temporary and probably won't be making anyone burst into flames, but one can't help but think, "What's next?" To that, I would have to give you nothing more than a shoulder shrug. Between our tank melting "Direct Energy Weapon" and high energy lasers that will shoot down missiles, something tells me a nuke won't be our biggest problem for long.
(The "Dazzler", which can cause temporary blindness)
I have read some unsupported claims that this gun can also make the victim feel as though he/she is on fire. Haven't found any sources to back that up as of yet.
