US Army makes Judge Dredd style smartgun a standard issue by 2014

The US Army recently confirmed whispers of equipping all of their infantry squads and special-forces teams with the XM-25 Judge Dredd style computer smartgun by the time 2014 rolls around. Just how fantastic is the XM-25 supposed to be? Let’s just say the enemies will swear and curse at it, as it can hit enemies who are hiding around corners or behind rocks. Once initial testing is complete and with the necessary Army approvals in place, up to 12,500 systems will be produced and issued from early 2014 onwards, which is a figure that is large enough to support one per infantry squad and Special Forces Team. We wonder whether there is a built-in self destruct mechanism just in case the XM-25 falls into the wrong hands during the heat of battle.
