XM25- Game changing killing ability.
Anyone seen this thing in action?
The XM25 does seem like a game changer, although I am by no means a military man. I would like to hear if anyone has any stories, or if they knew of it. Supposedly it is deployed in Afghanistan and is quite effective, as it should be for what it is supposedly able to do.
Being able to kill a hiding enemy seems like a bonus, I wonder how long until this kind of thing is standard issue.

I myself am hoping that we get a bunch of them in our guys' hands and they're taking it to the enemy with them.

I have no doubts that it has been around in prototype for ages, as I imagine many other forms of weaponry are as well, they don't just make a weapon and stick it in the field hoping it will work. I'm just wondering if any of the military guys have got their hands on one, or even the prototype.
Also, yes, the troops are entitled to copious amounts of badass weaponry, but I was under the impression that our (Allied) troops are under equipped considering the technological advancements we've made.

Fair enough, as I said, not a military guy. Just seemed like an interesting piece and when I searched, nothing came up.
