XM25 Individual Airburst Weapon System (IAWS)


The XM25, designed by Minnesota’s Alliant Techsystems, has been in development for about seven years and the first prototypes have been in use with combat units in Afghanistan. The 12-pound, 29-inch system, which costs up to $35,000 per unit, is so sophisticated that soldiers are proficient users literally within minutes. It has been nicknamed “the punisher” by troops who have found it to be an effective weapon on the battlefield (U.S. Army)
