Soon Coming to an Impovrished Iraqi Neighborhood, The XM25

The XM25 fires a High Explosive (HE), air bursting 25mm round capable of defeating an enemy behind a wall, inside a building or in a foxhole.

The advanced design allows the operator to program the round so that it flies to the target and detonates at a precise point in the air. It does not require impact to detonate.

The XM25 is ideal for urban combat. It puts precision firepower in the hands of the soldier, allowing them to eliminate threats without causing significant collateral damage.

"The initial field tests are very promising," said LTC Matthew Clarke, U.S. Army project manager, individual weapons.

"A weapon system like the XM25 will prove invaluable to our warfighters. It will be a clear differentiator on the battlefield."

The revolutionary fire control system for the XM25 employs an advanced laser rangefinder that transmits information to the chambered 25mm round.

As the round flies downrange to the target, it precisely measures the distance traveled and detonates at exactly the right moment to deliver maximum effectiveness.

The XM25 increases the warfighter's probability of hit-to-kill performance by up to 500 percent over existing weapons.

It also extends the effective range of the soldier's individual weapon to more than 500 meters.

ATK Successfully Demonstrates XM25 Airbursting Weapon System

ATK'S Advanced Weapon Design Gives the Warfighter Unmatched Precision and Lethality

XM25 Ideal for Urban Combat Environments

Minneapolis, June 22, 2005 – Alliant Techsystems (NYSE: ATK) and the U.S. Army’s Project Manager-Soldier Weapons successfully demonstrated the XM25 advanced airbursting weapon system with developmental ammunition at the International Infantry & Joint Services Small Arms Systems Annual Symposium on May 19, 2005.

The target for the first shot was a small window located approximately 170 meters down range. After exiting the chamber, the round flew right through the target and detonated inside the virtual room. The next four shots in the demonstration sequence also successfully engaged targets at ranges approaching 500 meters. The demonstration was the latest in an on-going series of successful field tests for the XM25. It was designed to simulate a realistic urban combat challenge and the XM25 met all test objectives.

When fielded, the XM25 will fire a High Explosive (HE), air bursting 25mm round capable of defeating an enemy behind a wall, inside a building or in a foxhole. The advanced design allows the operator to program the round so that it flies to the target and detonates at a precise point in the air. It does not require impact to detonate.

The revolutionary fire control system for the XM25 employs an advanced laser rangefinder that transmits information to the chambered 25mm round. As the round flies down range to the target, it precisely measures the distance traveled and detonates at exactly the right moment to deliver maximum effectiveness. The XM25 dramatically increases the warfighter’s system performance while extending the effective range of the soldier’s individual weapon to more than 500 meters.
