No matter how fast you're driving, no matter the weather conditions, if someone fires a Brimstone missile from a MQ-9 Reaper drone and you're the target, you're dead. This slow-motion test compilation shows its terrifying precision and the destruction that follows. Just look at that shockwave moving.

You can fire this thing against any target moving at 70mph from a maximum of 12 kilometers away and forget about it—it's implacable. In fact, you can target the driver with a missile without a warhead and kill that person alone, leaving the rest of passengers (mostly) untouched.
