The U.S. military has every confidence in the CPS. They have already begun training 4,000 troops with modified CPS weapons. The CPS 1200 Lance is being well-received by troops.
Marines complete a hard day of Hydro-Endurance Training at Parris Island.
"For its balance, rate of fire, and reliability in the field, the 1200 is the foot soldier's best friend. And the d--- thing is just so easy to clean," reports Srgt. Moore of the USMC.
The handheld CPS 40 Marlin pistol is already being carried by officers overseas.
Heavy gunners will soon be replacing their M-60E4s with the CPS 6000 Eroder. This massive weapon is capable of spitting out 4 gallons of highly pressurized water every second at a whopping 6,000 psi. This is powerful enough to saw a tank in half from 90 feet (27.4 meters) in less than three minutes.
The CPS 12000 replaces the conventional shoulder mounted RPG. Troops call this anti-tank weapon the "can opener."
For close-quarters combat against multiple adversaries, the CPS 1200 Mako, or "splatter gun," as it is called, is an effective replacement for the combat shotgun. The Mako produces a water pulse capable of knocking down a brick wall. This gun fires a sheet-spray of water 15 feet (4.6 meters) in diameter, traveling just under the speed of sound.
"It will literally tear the uniforms off of enemy soldiers. It's a devastating weapon," reports Srgt. Moore.
In addition, there have been CPS kits developed for submachine guns and shoulder-mounted RPGs.
For heavy firepower, the CPS 60,000 Poseidon Cannon and several of its variations are being retrofitted onto tanks and other armored vehicles.
The M-1 tank will be retro fitted to use a variation on the 60,000-psi Neptune Cannon.
The DewDrop hydro-grenade explodes on contact, releasing a sticky liquid mixture soldiers call "apple juice."
The military is not limiting itself to projectile-based weaponry. The W-4 DewDrop
is a replacement for a traditional hand grenade. The DewDrop contains carbonated water mixed with a powerful narcotic, a noxious gas and an adhesive. Soldiers call this sticky fluid apple juice
The apple juice is first contained in aluminum modules called zippers. To use the DewDrop, soldiers connect a polyethylene sack to a tab on the zipper. Pulling the pin on the zipper releases 15 ounces of apple juice into the sack. The apple juice also contains small metal abrasives that pass rapidly through the slip, a tiny opening in the zipper. The friction between the abrasives and the slip causes the aluminum to heat. This heat melts the polyethylene, fusing the now empty zipper to the sack. The zipper adds weight and balance to the otherwise hard-to-throw DewDrop. Once thrown, the DewDrop explodes on contact.
When the DewDrop explodes, it releases its contents in a highly destructive splash. The noxious gas and narcotics are also released, disabling any enemy soldiers not killed by the blast. The adhesive in the apple juice causes it to stick to enemies, ensuring the success of the narcotic.
