XM-25 rifle shoots tiny laser-targeted smart bombs

Let's hope this XM-25 rifle with its smart bullets doesn't find its way into enemy hands. The system is clever enough to detonate its exploding 25mm bullets within 3 feet of their targets, picking off unfortunate foes with uncanny accuracy, even when they're hiding behind obstacles.

After calculating the target's distance with a laser rangefinder, this lethal weapon sends a radio signal to a chip inside the bullet. That brilliant projectile can precisely measure the distance it's traveled, exploding at precisely the right distance for maximum killage. Ouch.

The U.S. military will begin field testing this crazy tech this year, with the goal of rolling it out on battlefields everywhere in a couple of years. Let's just hope U.S. troops won't need to be on battlefields then.

Holy crap, 25 mm rounds are larger than most anti-tank rounds. Imagine the recoil when shooting that f*cker. O_O

H&K is a German gun manufacturer. I doubt it will be a US military exclusive. While the recoil is in question, there is a new firing system called the SUPER V which pushes the recoil down rather than back at the shooter.

Its implemented in a .45 SMG called the KRISS

      I did not know Michael Bay was going to make another transformers. This is a series I would like to see rebooted and have nothing to do with Michael Bay.

      I liked this movie. Good gunslinger action, special effects and alot of killing. Anyone else see it? Angelina Jolie is in it, but shes mostly a secondary character. The gun fight on the train was sweet.
