Lawgiver! Awesome.

Judge Dredd smartguns are to be issued to the 101st Airborne (via Warren Ellis).

It's all go in the world of futuristic Judge Dredd style guns today. Reports suggest that a battalion of US airmobile* troops in Afghanistan are to be equipped with the XM-25 computing smart-rifle, able to strike enemies hiding round corners or in trenches. A successful "proof of concept" of a guided homing bullet for use in sniper rifles has also been announced.

Briefing: The Lawgiver.

Bah, they're the outgrowth of the 25mm grenade launcher technology from the OCSW/OICW programs.
