      Israel National News TV takes a look at two Israeli developments at the annual Israel Defense exhibition (ISDEF 2010). The two weaponry developments were produced by the "Silver Shadow" company and are aimed at improving the use of personal weapons in combat.

      The Gilboa is an assault rifle "based on the M-16, but with all the necessary improvements" and the Corner-Shot is a special Israeli technology which allows soldiers to shoot from behind a corner with the use of video camera and a special rotating rifle.
