I am neither cheating nor inventing a new language. As part of the A - Z challenge, I am posting a simple post on weapons everyday *fictitious / real*. To know more about my theme and about the challenge visit this link. I intend to post about Closed Atmospheric Field De-stabilizers (aka Warbler) today.
Wizard popped up out of the manhole, his grenade launcher raised. He fired it three times, each shot emitting a loud puncture-like phump.
The rounds that burst out of the grenade launcher looked like grenades, but they weren’t grenades—fat and round and silver, they fanned out to three corners of the giant cavern, little red pilot lights on them blinking.
The Europeans heard the first shot and by the third had located Wizard.
A French sniper on the cabin of the crane swung his rifle round, drew a bead on Wizard’s forehead, and fired.
His bullet went haywire.
It peeled downwards almost as soon as it left the barrel of the Frenchman’s rifle—where it struck an unfortunate croc square in the head, killing it.
The ‘Warblers’ at work.
The three odd-looking silver rounds that Wizard had fired were more formally known as Closed Atmospheric Field Destabilisers (Electromagnetic), but everyone just called them ‘Warblers’.
|Gun Free Zone|
One of Wizard’s rare military inventions, the Warblers created a magnetic field that disrupted the flight of high-subsonic metal objects—specifically bullets—creating a gunfire-free zone.
Ain't that an awesome invention? Ever imagined something like that? You are in enemy controlled zone and yet their rifles, bullets and snipers can't get you just because you fired a Closed Atmospheric Field De-stabilizer (Warbler)?
This fictitious weapon is from Seven Ancient Wonders by Matthew Reilly. Read any of his books? Know any of this cool weapons?
with warm regards
