Same programme from HK I was watching about the exoskeleton... this is amazing work being done now on underwater projectiles. The bullets fired underwater impact the target almost immediately after they're shot, such high speeds, greater than those of current projectiles in use by the military. Then you have the torpedoes but this seems to be slightly more problematic when you read about the Kursk.

Yeah the Kursk made a mess of itself with that Shkval...I hope that the torps rumored to be testing aboard the new Virginia-class boats are more reliable than those.
