Less than lethal: the latest in microwave

Silent audio, telepathic scream ... call it whathever you want, the MEDUSA boils down to: a microwave weapon that makes you hear things in your head. That is INSIDE you head, so a pair of earplugs won't keep it out, a rather obvious defense against "traditional" arcoustic weapons.

  • ... the biggest issue from the microwave weapon is not the radiation. It's the risk of brain damage from the high-intensity shockwave created by the microwave pulse.
Duly noted: concussion grenades are also "less than lethal", and capable of turning ones brain into scrambeled eggs ... joy.
