Bedazzled

In its latest installment of Russian military modernization, the latest in anti-pirate technology has been unveiled. The aptly named "Dazzle Rifle" the design for which was no doubt based upon multiple viewings of the "Fifth Element," emits an extremely bright light which causes temporary blindness; thus preventing small boat approaches. Yargh!

(They've also created the DP-54, a grenade launcher capable of discharging without creating a jet stream, but it's not nearly as awesome looking.)

Now we know where the guns in Star Ship Troopers came from.
