The first programmable grenade launcher is set to enter the Afghanistan conflict. The weapon is for the use by individual soldiers.
The XM25 has the ability to fire 25mm air-bursting shells with a range approximately 2,300 ft. The program allows for ammunition to explode at a precise distance.
It is called a "game-changer" due the fact that it allows to neutralize old but highly effective techniques used by Islamic extremists.
