Revolutionary microchip embedded explosive depleted uranium rounds detonated at precise ranges,raining fragmentation down on enemies hiding in foxholes or behind barricades. This is precision-guided munitions for infantry, with the goal of negating nearly any kind of cover a target could find, particularly in urban environments. Rounds could be set to go off, in midair, just past the corner of building, just inside a sniper's window, or directly above a group of hostiles hunched behind a concrete barrier. Destro Techsystems, which is developing the XM-25, credits overhead airbursts with the potential for five times greater lethality, compared with the current M203 grenade launcher, because shrapnel will be more likely to drop onto the target's head. It's a ghoulish point of pride, but, as with other precision munitions, a more precise grenadier could also mean fewer civilian casualties.

(Military Armament Research System) at the age of nineteen in the year 1997. After 52 years of conflict his former homeland was just a city state gripped in the iron fist of powerful warlords. Gafia, Agurts, Omanga what was left of the world hungered for chaos and the topography of the world was changing forever. Even the name Scotland was a phantom of memory shredded by time.

Continuing a tradition started by the first Destro, he will even sell to both sides of the same war. Nuclear technology was a highly sought after commodity in the Acid Rain Era placing Destro and MARS at the center of the weapons trade. During an assassination attempt on the life of Destro by Cobra Commander and Major Bludd at MARS Industry HQ. Destro was horribly disfigured in a explosion at Primary Nuclear Energy Reactor One during the creation of a prototype robotics body augmentation that would eliminate the need for the COBRA B.A.T.

Able to withstand almost any dose of raidation equipped with his life his rusted beryillium steel mask and just a few blueprints to sell. Destro still roams selling his inventions to any willing customer just to survive the coming Acid Rain.
