Think of an enemy hiding behind a rock. An enemy you cannot see. An enemy you can pull the trigger and hit anyway. Our military will eventually have this game-changing smart weapon as early as next year. See a fascinating video below.
The name of this new weaponry technology is XM25 Counter Defilade Targeting Engagement System
The XM25 – which is not much bigger than a standard service rifle – fires 25 mm rounds that can be programmed to explode on impact, in front of or behind an object. The weapon allows soldiers to kill enemies hiding behind walls or other cover by firing above, or to the side, of the wall from up to 700 meters away.
