Oh man, here’s another reason for those Jew-hating British academics to boycott Israel.
Amos Golan, an Israeli and former commando, has the chutzpah to invent a smart weapon that makes it easier to kill terrorists in close-quarter combat.
Cornershot allows the soldier to see and shoot around corners without exposing himself to deadly return fire by the terrorists. The soldier just nudges the muzzle of Cornershot forward, the video camera in the muzzle reveals what’s hidden round the bend, if there’s a hostile, boom, the weapon can actually fire around the corner.
That’s one shocked and very dead terrorist.
This baby even sports a 40 mm grenade launcher.
Yup, this is an adaptable piece of weapons technology that should be invaluable in urban warfare. Take a look at this video of Cornershot.
I know that some elite anti-terrorist units in the IDF have been using this weapon secretly and quite successfully—and making recommendations for further refinements. I wonder if the slow-as-molasses Pentagon procurement offices have stepped up and given Cornershot a serious field study. I cannot believe that our troops would not welcome such a weapon in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the forty-five other countries where our troops are currently deployed around the world.
