TTAG has chronicled the rising fortunes of the XM-25 grenade launcher, a “12-pound, 29-inch gun can fire 25mm airbursting rounds up to 500 meters (546 yards) for a precision target and 700 meters (765 yards) when firing on an area.” That’s how cnet.com describes “The Punisher,” and we’re not arguing with that—especially if they know someone who has one. Taliban forces in Afghanistan might, as the Army is busy testing five of the weapons system on their ass. Or what’s left of their ass. “Under the [new] 30-month contract with the Army’s Program Executive Office (PEO) Soldier, the XM-25 will be further designed and tested to ensure the final weapon meets all requirements.” So that will be 36 more please. Followed by, oh, 12,500. Wait. Executive Office Soldier? Does the Freedom Group borg know about this? God I hope not.
