The XM-25, computer smartgun from ATK that recently received a $66 million contract and is being moved into production stages has just been shown off in an impressive video demonstration. The futuristic weapon is more than just a collection of metal and bullets – it packs a computer that makes the gun even more dangerous than ever. An advanced aiming and tracking system that allows users to take down enemies precisely and quickly, it also features the ability to detonate frag shells at different distances. This allows soldiers to make use of different tactical approaches when dealing with targets hiding behind covers or around the corner. The XM-25 also supports several different types of ammo, for different uses depending on the situation, and as a last resort, the gun can also effectively work as a regular combat shotgun when used in close range. Hit the break to watch the demo video of the XM-25 in action:
