Bye Bye Jihadi: XM25 Supergun Goes to U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

A tactical game changer...cover has been the basic standard of ranged warfare ever since projectile weapons emerged. The XM25 shoots active rounds with timers which explode the warhead in flight after passing the cover.

!!NEXT GENERATION WEAPONS:THE XM25 AIRBURST!! 12/2009 (6 min 3 sec)


Take cover...you're blasted from above or behind it. Break cover and run..you're blasted. Jihadi, you're dogmeat...God Willing.

As long as ther has been figting, there's been accidental fratricide ... one can mitigate that through training, technology and tactics ... but you'll never be able to eliminate it completely.

As for the weapon ... I believe this was a component of a weapon system that was originally intended to replace the old M-16 right?

The Jihadis don't need to be downtown Now they will simply be downrange.

this is what happens when you invite jihadis to a wedding. I suggest a wedding with no terrorist invites, reducing the likelyhood of an uninvited visit from a passing JDAM.
