Tesla Troopers in today's armies A possibility on making a tesla weapon

This is it : You have a pressure pomp that projects thin small metal pieces in a linear direction. From the muzzle, you generate electricity. The distance between the dense particles that form the "beam" being small, electricity'll pass from particle to particle. It's practicaly a cable with air being the isolator and the thin metal concentrated powder, the conductor. It would be good for a small-to-medium range weapon, but not good against armoured vehicles, electricity leaking in the ground through the vehicle without passing through the ocuppants. Allso, it would take a Lot of energy to kill a tank crew, so, a soldier simmilar to the Soviet TeslaTrooper in RA1 would be possible.

also, your gear would have to be computerized to time it correctly, because one miscalculation and either the bolt wouldn't go far, or wouldn't connect. doesn't it also have to be a complete circut. there has to be different charges otherwise I think.
