Weapons technology has gone this far. Now the most powerful yet army gun can be operated wirelessly, comes with a built-in fire-control system that can program each of the weapon's 25 millimeter rounds wirelessly, in real time, so soldiers can take down enemies around obstacles:
As you can see in the schematics, the fire-control system uses thermal
optic, day-sight, laser range finder, compass and IR light to exactly
measure the distance to the target, programming each of the rounds'
fuses so it explodes next to the target using a wireless connection.
According to the US Army, this gives maximum destruction power and
minimum collateral damage, while allowing to save barriers that
previously didn't allow to reach the target.
The capability to program the rounds is what allows this weapon to
go "around objects". If, for example, there's a sniper hidden behind a
trench, the soldier can program each round so they explodes just above
the target. The bullets will explode at that exact range, taking down
the target thanks to their air bursting power.
The XM25 is capable of firing an air-bursting round out to 600
meters with a 360-degree explosive radius, all with extreme precision
according to testers. However, each round doesn't have to be lethal:
There will be two kind of non-lethal rounds (blunt and airburst) to
neutralize enemies without killing them.
