XM-25, Coming to the battlefield

The US military has deployed at least five futuristic Individual Airburst Weapon Systems in Afghanistan capable of firing specialized rounds that explode at precise locations in enemy territory.

"The XM-25 makes our forces more [deadly], it makes them more effective and it keeps them safer," Lt. Col. Christopher Lehner, the project manager for individual weapons at Program Executive Office Soldier, told ABC News.
