LAV-25's main gun, the M242 Bushmaster 25mm Chain gun. Each HE shell has the kill radius of a fragmentation grenade and is accurate beyond 2Km. The LAV-25 is a reconnaissance vehicle, used by Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalions of the USMC. Designed for use in Europe for deep reconnaissance against a Soviet enemy, the Bushmaster is designed to combat BMPs, BTRs, and other light armored vehicles. However, it does a number on unarmed vehicles such as cars and trucks and is devastating against dismounted targets. This was filmed on a range in Kuwait shooting at old car hulls and cardboard silhouettes.
