Improvised Rockets

Crude.

Simple.

Not sure of the damage causing capabilities of these rockets, seem to be more like noise making fireworks, but you get the idea?

It's effective at keeping the cops back.


Think improvisation.

The concept is there, just needs a little fine tuning.

  1. I would say, hell you can buy bigger mortars than that at every fireworks stand in the US just about. =) might be time to stock up. Feeling all 4th of july-y all of a sudden.

  2. The only way to really make them effective for anything except simply making foot-mobile folks piss themselves would be to develop a shaped-charge laden warhead....Not undoable. Consider the toy your buddy brought to the class, and consider the implications of that with workshop manufactured munitions for it....the same applies to other indirect-fire weapons.

    1. Note they have shields to repel any gas grenades or beanbags, which is good for a riot until they break out the hard ammo.

      They COULD tape some bb shot around the warhead. They might also dig around the internet and find out how the Congreve rocket was made-which was spin stabilized. Or a even simpler method might be a unspooling streamer or fins instead of that crude and heavy long stick. Did like the launch method though, but you need two people; one to ignite and one to ram home the rocket and he needs gloves.

      Other than that you got to hand it to them for their ingenuity and will.
