The German Army’s Mantis Cannon is Some Superb Air Attack Protection

German Army's Mantis

The German Army’s Mantis is ready to take on all air threats with little mercy.

The German Army MANTIS (Modular, Automatic and Network capable Targeting and Interception System) is quite a formidable weapon. The system is automated and employs six 35mm cannons to knock any threat out of the sky. 

Witness the German Army’s Mantis and see some serious firepower.

This short range air defense system has come  in handy for base defense in Afghanistan. It will knock out incoming rockets, mortars, and artillery with superior firepower.

Just when you think your 12-gauge shotgun is the end-all for hitting aerial targets, you’ll think twice now. This video proves the MANTIS is ready for a fight.
