US Army introduces $35,000 rifle called the XM25 Counter Defilade Target Engagement System

by Gareth Mankoo

There’s no frill intended in the extension of names, especially of modern weaponry but that belief is countered when one hears about the XM25 Counter Defilade Target Engagement System. The awesomeness of this rifle is its projection of small grenades that automatically detonate in mid-air. It has an accuracy of 1-meter over a distance of 800-meters. It can prove to be a rude shock to combat warriors who hide behind a wall. The grenades explode at least a meter behind them.
