looks IED/booby trap proof :roll:

It is the chassis from their previous anti-IED robot, with a new top section added on to provide lots of extra fire power. :p :p :p

bring it on mr insurgent! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Although it does bring back memories of the terminator films

just imagine, 10yrs from now, we may be fighting them 8O 8O 8O

Now we just need the insurgants to fight for four hours at a time - because that's how long the batteries last!

As one Marine fresh out of boot camp told Quinn upon seeing the robot: "This is my invisibility cloak."
That wouldn't happen to be a certain Marine Potter H. would it? :roll:

"It eliminates the majority of shooting errors you would have," said Tordillos.
Trouble is, it won't eliminate the one septic shooting error that really matters...'is it ours?'

Mmm, I'm getting ideas like 'grappling hook' and 'paint'. The only problem that the insurgents will have is finding an orange jumpsuit to fit it.

And it appears that this robot is not totally American in origin ....
It was a joint development process between the Army and Foster-Miller, a robotics firm bought in November by QinetiQ Group PLC, which is a partnership between the British Ministry of Defence and the Washington holding company The Carlyle Group
(source http://msnbc.msn.com/id/6852832/

and a quick look at the directors of the Carlyle Group it appears that it is advised and owned by a number of prominent individuals such as John Major, George Bush Sr, James Baker and friends.

I'm sure they'll last about a week.

RPG, RPG shun!

This is good news:

1. You don't have to tell this dingus how long it's going to be staying over there, and,

2. You don't have to explain to it why it was sent over there in the first place.

Dont even need a RPG, just kick it over so it falls on its side, job done!

It reminds me of the old wheelbarrow bomb disposal robot

Throw a sack over the little bleeder and drag it into the bushes! Then I suppose you and your mates can moon at its camera before you start sending it to the manufacturer, screw by screw

It suffers from the same problem as the Daleks: all set to dominate the universe until they came across a staircase :D
