EXACTO

EXACTO is a guided a missile intended to be launched from guns and be interchaingable with existing ordinance increasing weapon accuracy and reducing the chance of collateral damage.. This is not at first blush in any way unusual. However, the guns in question are not 155mm weapons nor 105's.
EXACTO is to be launched from 12.7mm barrels.
No that decimal did not slip.

Fifty.
Caliber.
Guided.
Missile. 


Wow!

There is more here, here and here.

2 I think I read about something similar five years ago or thereabouts; the Navy was trying to replace the R2D2s with guided bullets like this for anti-missile defense. 'Course, if they ever get a working laser it'll make this all redundant. Either way, what was science fiction less than 30 years ago is very soon to be reality.
