Time, do you have any pics from this article? Also, Im still really curiouse about the deployment on the XM8. As I said In another thread, apparently CIS got some of these. Do you have any new information on it?

XM8? Is that the one with the computerized targeting system for explosive rounds?

No, that was the OICW, which evolved into the XM-8.

I think I remember the other rifle too with all the computerized balogna. It had an IFF system for those people who couldn't tell the difference between their squadmates and a Talibaner. It was rediculous. The XM 8, on the other hand, is quite a bit better. And it has a larger, kickyoass sized round.

None of the weapons listed are really "new". They have been either in service or testing for years now. Most are just mods on current issue.
