    Even before the U.S. army began experimenting with it last year in Afghanistan, the XM-25 rifle was already being hailed as a game changer. Now it appears like the futuristic weapon has more than lived up to the hype.

    Army officials were so impressed with the technology that they recently awarded defense firm ATK a $65.8 million dollar contract to develop it further in preparation for mass production, which is slated for sometime in the year 2013. And for anyone who wants to know what the big deal is, the military has just released a demonstration video that showcases why you wouldn’t want to mess with anybody armed with what some have nicknamed “The Punisher.”

    The XM-25 Counter Defilade Target Engagement System is a semi-automatic airburst grenade launcher that’s specially designed to overcome a common problem faced by troops in combat situations. Insurgents who attack often take cover behind walls, trees and trenches, making it difficult for soldiers to score a direct hit. But rounds fired from the rifle can be programmed to explode at a set distance, such as right above or behind the enemy target.

    I did a search before posting & didn't find anything. I guess the search function doesn't work well.

    Now I have no military experience whatsoever and don't know much of anything relating but as awesome as that rifle is...I see its size being a problem. Maybe its just me.
