Here is an interesting short video on some weapons still used in warfare.

“OK, so this one is up for debate, but we’ve put together a list of the top five worst weapons that are still in regular legal use, today. From downright nasty technology to devastating to local civilians, many of these weapons are in the process of being banned, or have had campaigns launched to outlaw them. Disagree? Let us know if there’s something you think should be on the list. There’s a couple of things we didn’t include — The first is chemical weapons, because *most* countries have now banned them and they are only very rarely used, and the second is ‘dum dum’ or hollow/soft point bullets. These particularly horrendous rounds open up and expand on impact, causing massive internal injuries and making removing the bullet very difficult to remove. Whilst police and civilians in some countries still use them, they are outlawed in warfare.”
See what you think.
