If you are into assault rifles or have served in the military in combat roles, you’d be familiar with tracer rounds. It is usually loaded every fifth round to help gunners or snipers to enable them to see where the shots are headed during the night. It is not perfect, though. Tracer rounds expose a gunner or sniper’s position, plus it is only useful at night. But one company wants to dispense with the use of tracer rounds, while still allowing gunners and snipers to see clear where the rounds are landing.
