As a point of interest, a similar weapon appears on
Arnold Schwarzinagger's movie "Eraser". In the movie,
the bulky nb warhead was fired from a rifle. It
dropped onto the floor, then suddenly it shot towards
mid-air and instead of exploding, the warhead spinned
at high speed to disperse the nails at high velocity.
IIRC, Arnold & Venessa Williams dodged the nails with
a broken fridge door but still he catched one nail at
his palm.
