Created by Orbital ATK, the XM25 Counter Defilade Engagement System is a shoulder-fired rifle equipped with a built-in ‘target acquisition and fire control system’, enabling soldiers with basic shooting skills to operate the weapon. What sets it apart from other rifles is its ability to use bullets that are programmed to explode after having traveled a set distance, up to 2300-feet away.
