    Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF) was the second organization to develop a cornershot type weapon.

    POF Eye is a special-purpose hand-held weapon system similar in concept to the CornerShot that can fire weapons around corners. It was first revealed at the 5th International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (IDEAS 2008), held at the Karachi Expo Centre in November 2008.[2][3] It is designed for SWAT and special forces teams in hostile situations, particularly counter-terrorism and hostage rescue operations. It allows its operator to both see and attack an armed target without exposing the operator to counter-attack.

    'Felin' type system is more desirable, as all the rifles in the service can be equipped with a targeting camera and a helmet mounted display unit.

    Interesting Thread, ANTIBODY; I think PDF members and people coming across the web to this Thread should know the basics and information on Weapon Systems that shoot around the corners as well as long distances verity of weapons have been introduced. This is broad Topic.

    A weapon that shoots around the corners is the first of its kind. The very first weapon is from Israel simply named "Corner Shot". Corner Shot is a new weapon system designed for urban combat which enables the user to observe and engage a target from behind a corner without exposing any body parts.

    The Corner Shot consists of a segmented, assault rifle-type folding stock, pistol-grip contraption, onto which is attached a pistol of choice and a compact, detachable color video camera. A lateral left and right swinging hinge mechanism and a remote trigger control allow the user to drop the hammer on targets from behind the safety and comfort of any right-angled structure.

    However there are many weapons developed as Non Line of sight weapons without having folding stock never the less both have their usage in urban warfare and on in the battlefield.

    There are also NLOS-C [non line of sight cannon] as well as NLOS-LS [launch System].
