Velocity and mass, that's all you're concerned about with a kinetic energy
weapon. Want to knock out a satellite? Just put a couple ball bearings
in its flight path. Poof. A 35mm round with enough velocity and mass
(like the depleted uranium slugs in the Warthog's Avenger cannon) will
cut through anything.
