forget shotguns, why not this for anti drone warfare?

forget shotguns, why not this for anti drone warfare?

"The Fliegerfaust-B, also known as the Luftfaust, had nine tubes of 1.5 meters in length. The nine grenades (90-gram explosive grenades with a caliber of two centimeters, carrying 19 grams of explosive) were fired in two volleys at intervals of 0.2 seconds and formed a hit circle of about 60 meters in diameter at a distance of 500 meters. The 6.5 kilogram weapon was simply placed with the rear part on the shoulder, there was no recoil."

replace the dumb projectiles with each being capable of airbursting and get everything in that 60m circle peppered

    would the issue be targeting? Jammers be cheaper than active defense?

    Because this exists and has already been delivered. I don’t know about networking capabilities, but potentially turning every vehicle in your arsenal into an CUAS platform sounds better than some shitty shoulder fired weapon.

        Given the saturation of the modern battlefield with drones, you cannot produce man portable solutions other than EW/DEW systems because soldiers simply cannot carry sufficient ammo. One could argue for smart 40mm grenades fired from man portable launchers, but that’s about it and the abysmal ROF makes their effectiveness dubious at best.

          yet a vehicle only solution for a country like ukraine with a real hole in their supplies might as well be the same

            There is no viable man portable solution to the problem. It has to be either vehicle based due to size/weight/energy requirements or suicide drones, of which you would require massive amounts of, leading right back to vehicles to transport them with.

        Aka every fricking vehicle across the army potentially. And western armies haven't regressed to WWI-era unmotorised meat waves and chinese golf carts like the Russians. moron.

      Imagine blasting some poor bastard with this thing at a range of 50 meters.
      It'd be horrific if it wasn't so fricking funny.

    Downing these little drones is easy. Just use proximity explosives. They already make them for 40mm. The US used proximity flak guns with huge success in WW2 especially against the Japanese. Take the 40mm version, use a 40mm grenade launcher and bye bye drones. The truth of the matter is that Russia doesn't think the lives of their soldiers is worth the investment or cost of squad anti drone guns. They issue out the jammers in small quantities, but let's face it, individual hobby drones while fun to watch, are not causing enough casualties for Russia to invest in an anti drone solution.

    why not just use a net-launcher to hit the drone out of the sky?

    can't they just have a swarm of mini drones that are designed to go after the blades on bigger drones? we already have target recognition stuff for guns like the CIWS, just scale it down a bit
