rbrander writes “Don’t call it a ‘rifle,’ call it the ‘XM25 Counter Defilade Target Engagement System’ and get your $35,000 worth. Much more than a projector of high-speed lead, this device hurls small grenades that automatically detonate in mid-flight with 1-meter accuracy over nearly 800m. The vital field feature is the ability to explode 1m behind the wall you just lazed — the one with the enemy hiding behind it.”
