Anyone know how to make effects like cannon fire, bullet impacts and other effects like the sparks in the attached photo?

Aw... Disappointed...

 

If you are into electronics, you can of course use a small but bright led here. I've seen this kind of arrangement on some HO scale model railroad where a blinking led with quite a realistic blinking pattern was simulating welding.

I was more looking for using the "sparks" in the photo to simulate rifle/tank caliber rounds hitting armor.

 

I was also hoping to simulate the moment a weapon is discharged, including the casings ejected from infantry weapons.

The sparks in that image?  Photoshop.

Sure about that? I'd be curious to see other shots of that build because I would have said it was done with thin fiber optics and a well placed LED but maybe not. If it is PS I'm disappointed too.
