Corner Shot I.

This is coolbert:

Here is one of those "advancements" you have to wonder about.

A technological innovation that has a lot of merit??

The Corner Shot.

A weapons system that allows a person in combat to shoot effectively around a corner without exposing themselves. Has applicability in terrorist situations or in the close-combat situations found in urban warfare?

An "apparatus" consisting of a housing for a conventional auto loading pistol, a video camera with light [infra-red and laser designator both?], a swing-mechanism with stock.

Has several variants to include:

* A 40mm Personal Grenade Launcher.

* A "Panzerfaust" type weapon that fires a shaped charge round capable of defeating lightly armored vehicles.

Is this something that will "fly"?!
