Looks like the US military has developed the small version of Jerry Pournelle’s “Rods from God“.  I’ve been watching this particular area with interest.  With private space companies bringing the cost per pound to launch items into orbit way down, I have thought for some time that within 7 years we’d have actual heavy inert rods in orbit.  Combined with precision guidance, this will make for an awesome non-nuclear capability.
