Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just seen this, I think it looks very interesting indeed. Sorry if it's been posted before.

    Read the rest of the article and see the video here: Army Creates Fleet of Robots On Segways! | Singularity Hub
  2. Assuming they don't need to train against targets that are on the first floor,they'll be great.
    Still bloody freaky though.
  3. That's phenomenal!

    Fun but I suspect not cheap.
  5. Sheeeite! £3.5K! You can get a half-decent second-hand motor for that - or three brand new Tommy motor scooters!

    Still a good live-fire training tool though.
  6. This is great! Teaching troops to shoot hoodies!!!
  7. DE&S are working on a British version which has a Sinclair C5 driven by a Speak & Spell.
  8. Shot your muck up KP fast enough though didn't you?
  9. Great idea, until they actually go on ops and some poor bugger on a skate-board or roller blades happens to go past them!

    Dish to goods!!!! KP?
  11. I had no idea he was a 'wide receiver'.
  12. I rather like the way they'll be able to segue from one scenario to the next ...

    It might be interesting to put some in uniform, have the 'terrorists' shoot them as part of an exercise, and then see how people respond to the robotic shout of 'Medic!!'
