The German Army was equipped with the “IFEX Hand-Water-Pistol”. The pistol uses a new “impuls technologie,” that works like this:
- one liter water is pressed into the water tank with six bar
- the pressure chamber is filled with air up to 25 bar
- the shot is fired by a high-velocity valve that opens for 20/1000 of a second
- this impuls shot hits the target with 400km/h or about 250 miles/h
Advantage in case of fire : the normal cooling space for one liter water gets decupled; from normally 6 square meters up to 65 square meters—with one single shot.
People say Europeans are more culturally, socially advanced than Americans. And yet, give them a big gun, and the first thing they do is get a little blond girl to shoot it on video, too.
