We saw a blurry image of the XM-25 grenade launcher before, but it sure looks dangerous and menacing in the hands of a soldier. So dangerous and menacing that they could include them in an Aliens remake.

With its computer-controlled projectiles, the XM-25 grenade launcher has everyone amazed at the Pentangon. The key to its destructive power is how the projectiles can be programmed wirelessly to explode at a laser-measured range. That means that you can fire a projectile over a wall or barricade, and have it explode over the enemy, without having to make contact with any object.
