Civilians will never see these.

Too much like KTW rounds which will penetrate vests.

I suspect the ability to cause a lot of damage at low angle trajectories will be more valuable than the water penetration ability. Agreed that if they can get this figured out for guided technologies like subs and torpedoes it will be yuge.
