The XM25 “Punisher” Being Field Tested in Afghanistan

Posted: April 6, 2011 in Uncategorized


Come get some! The XM25 is bringing a world of hurt to Afgan baddies right now. The Army is apparently field testing the (ready for the street name?) Punisher in very limited numbers right now. You must click through to see the very first demo of the weapon in action. It shows the fancy targeting system that guides the 25mm burst rounds to their targets, which then penetrates barriers to explode behind enemy combatants. DefenseTech states the Army just signed a $65 million check to ATK for a bunch of XM-25s at an estimated price of $25,000 each. Who says America doesn’t make anything cool anymore?
