    Helloooooo CornerShot! I don't think it really counts, though, because if memory serves it's basically a standard rifle with an underslung Glock, the sights of which are connected to the screen you see on the side of the stock.

    @RenThing

    1. The shell's probably hardened to take external stressors? I figure the only reason one would have to fire these through walls or other "soft" barriers would be because the Tango is behind it, and it's a shrapnel-based munition so if the first round doesn't get them, the second round will. And if I had a Tango who thought he was in cover that I could hit, I wouldn't skimp on rounds.

    2. Shrapnel-based munitions always have that problem. Same with grenades: if you try to "cook" it, your gauge of the fuse may be wrong. The fuse may have been made in China. Perhaps your trajectory is wrong. In any case, it might explode in mid-air and suddenly you're looking at an airburst right over a friendly Line, instead of over Tangos. Like pitching screwballs, you just gotta practise.

    @ Puckett, Kosmo,
    One hundred percent agreement. Whenever we're on line patrol and somebody springs an ambush or something, unless you're some extremely well-trained cucumbers half the combat unit you'll have with you will be taking cover, the other half'll somewhat dazed and trying to figure out where the hell they are, which is pretty important...! Because if you don't know what their assault vector is, how can you know whether your cover is adequate? The real prize goes to those who instinctively, by some gestalt of all their senses, can call Tango positions without a doubt and act accordingly. And even then, most of the rounds expended are suppressive fire. Marksmanship is great, but you'll never get range conditions in the field, and nothing beats overrunning a Tango position.

    And this is just for training sims. I haven't been in any real combat, with actual bullets flying. I don't see this as being a weapon for every infantryman: most infantrymen just want a reliable rifle that shoots straight. Trained in it? Sure. But this is more likely to be the new M203 than M16.
