More pics of the XM-109 August 16, 2004 Posted by Murdoc XM-109 25mm Sniper Rifle At Strategy Page. See my post on this weapon here. Updated: August 16, 2004 at 12:45 pm ◀ Was another Stryker RPGed at some point? Various Little Things ▶ Comments The link to your earlier post doesn’t seem to be working. That’s a weapon to be carried in a vehicle. The old M60 was about the heaviest thing I’d ever care to lug for miles. Link fixed. Thanks. My post just notes the SP entry when it first appeared, but I dug up a line drawing of the XM109 somewhere and included it. And yes, that thing looks like a monster. The earlier post includes some commentary about how the weapon will be mis-portrayed by Hollywood. From the image the ammunition for this weapon seems to be more like grenade-style ammmo like that for the XM-25 than cannon ammo as in what a Bushmaster on the M2 Bradley might carry, which makes the XM-109 sound a little less immpressive somehow. Wasn’t there something somewhere about the Army wanting to replace it’s M2 Browning HMGs with a belt-fed full-auto version of the XM-25?
