So there are a few sources, saying that Slugthrowers are outdated/archaic, useless for modern armies etc.
But is there any novel or comic evidence of Slugthrowers vs armor? It's noted that even the weakest armor can stop a Slugthrower bullet and by other sources, makes sense.
However I'm just wanting to know, if anyone knows of any evidence of this? Weither it be from a comic or novel and could give a source to such evidence? Thanks!Wolfscar45 (talk) 04:04, January 16, 2015 (UTC)
The souces contradict each other. As you have said, some sources claim that modern armor can stop all bullets, but on the other hand, the .48-caliber Morelian Weapons Conglomerate Enforcer pistol is said to be able to punch through any kind of personal armor. Most sources claim that blasters are more popular because they lack recoil, are easier to aim (gravity and wind affect bullets but not blaster bolts), have better range, are silent, their batteries occupy less space than slughthrower shells (a 50-shots heavy blaster battery is about as big as a 10-shots slugthrower magazine) and have a stun setting.--Brokendroid (talk) 10:04, February 8, 2015 (UTC)
It's not really contradicting, considering the .48 is made by a blaster corporation and it is noted that abnormally large rounds, which considering the .48 can punch through vehicle armor. Can punch through armor.
It's also noted blasters have more stopping power too compared to the general Slugthrower.
I'm looking for more in general really. I know in the Han Solo Trilogy, Han used a Slugthrower carbine against an armor piece and it literally did nothing. I'm just curious to see if there's other examples.Wolfscar45 (talk) 02:44, February 9, 2015 (UTC)
