The XM-25 makes for a very bad day

Reach out and touch someone

The US military is showcasing its latest weapon this week: The XM-25 Individual Airburst Weapon System, a weapon that can pretty much shoot behind walls. Essentially a high-tech grenade launcher, the XM-25 comes equipped with a laser designator scope that “talks” to the round being fired, allowing the projectile to adjust to a variety of factors, in order to deliver a devastating round on target.

If an opposition solider is hiding behind a wall, the XM-25 can determine the appropriate distance to fire the 25x40mm cartridge to allow it to explode after the round clears the wall, killing the target ensconced behind.

At $25,000 a pop, the gun isn’t cheap, but it is expected to give soldiers a decided advantage in the field.

The weapon is one of the few production models to grow out of the Objective Individual Combat Weapon, a multi-year R&D project to design the “next” generation of rifle to replace the ubiquitous M-16 rifle, the current military standard issue assault rifle.
