The Latest Cornershot Rifle
Innovative weapons designs are typically developed to serve problem areas highlighted during the heat of battle. The Israeli military, through their extensive experience with urban combat and counter terrorism operations, developed an idea to provide the war fighter with an exceptional first-strike capability. Which brings us to a recently revealed design from the Israeli firm whose corporation is the rifles namesake,
The Cornershot. With a camera mounted on the nose of a swiveling barrel of an assault pistol, a soldier wielding this rifle can get a first look into a dangerous situation and strike first. Additional models can be outfitted with an automatic grenade launcher to shoot around corners and clear rooms. Check out the video that displays the training and capabilities of squads wielding the Cornershot.
