n*gga did you even read it?


"The military isn't overly concerned that the weapon might be captured by the enemy, because they would be unable to obtain its highly specialized ammunition, batteries and other components. Lehner said he expects other nations will try to copy its technology, but it will be very cost-prohibitive."




this s**t is wild, technology is only going to get crazier.
u think they wouldn't get the ammo if they got the gun ur being fooled somebody on the blackmarket will sell them that s**t how u think they got all the other guns and she we had

What an ignorant post lol. Of course there is no such thing as a Russian War machine, Chinese war machine, the collective Middle East's war machine, India + Pakistan have nuclear weapons. Just as we are developing technological weapons so are they [they might even be ahead of us in certain but less aspects << scary thought huh]


Dumbs**t you sleep comfortably in the heaviest guarded country in the world, turn off your computer.

WASHINGTON (AFP) – It looks and acts like something best left in the hands of Sylvester Stallone's "Rambo," but this latest dream weapon is real -- and the US Army sees it becoming the Taliban's worst nightmare.

The Pentagon has rolled out prototypes of its first-ever programmable "smart" grenade launcher, a shoulder-fired weapon that uses microchipped ammunition to target and k!ll the enemy, even when the enemy is hidden behind walls or other cover.

After years of development, the XM25 Counter Defilade Target Engagement System, about the size of a regular rifle, has now been deployed to US units on the battlefields of Afghanistan, where the Army expects it to be a "game-changer" in its counterinsurgency operations.

"For well over a week, it's been actively on patrols, and in various combat outposts in areas that are hot," said Lieutenant Colonel Chris Lehner, program manager for the XM25.

The gun's stats are formidable: it fires 25mm air-bursting shells up to 2,300 feet (700 meters), well past the range of most rifles used by today's soldiers, and programs them to explode at a precise distance, allowing troops to neutralize insurgents hiding behind walls, rocks or trenches or inside buildings.

"This is the first time we're putting smart technology into the hands of the individual soldier," Lehner told AFP in a telephone interview.

"It's giving them the edge," he said, in the harsh Afghan landscape where Islamist extremists have vexed US troops using centuries-old techniques of popping up from behind cover to engage.

"You get behind something when someone is shooting at you, and that sort of cover has protected people for thousands of years," Lehner said.

"Now we're taking that away from the enemy forever."

PEO Soldier says studies show the XM25 is 300 percent more effective than current weapons at the squad level.

just like the chopper that can change to a fast flight plane, it can land like a chopper, yet it can fly at over 250 MPH, that the marines spent 28 BILLION YES BILLION and it failed...just b/c a prototype is released doesn't mean it'll ever make it to production, and the fact we know about it, says it won't...ever wonder why we dropped a MOAB and the us public found out it existed for 40 years before we knew about it?????????....yeah, b/c all this new s**t we have, takes 20 years for our gov't to mass produce and over pay some a**hole...


people are so stupid, there's a new gun every day by top gun makers for the military and only one out of every 500 or 1000 make it to production, there's no f**king way this will
