I found this interesting just to see where the current status of ground robotics are.

As for seeing a weaponized ground " not sure if you would classify this as a vehicle or unit or maybe both"
1:50 is where they test fire a unit and other uses for them

Because killing someone half way across the world with the press of a button wasn't enough, let's give drones their own autonomy. What could possibly go wrong?

Nope. You'll always need boots on the ground, especially when it comes to infantry combat.


The same thing was said about cavalry prior to World War I.

Any option that gives you a military advantage will be used in war.

The Army Infantryman and the Marine Rifleman will be with us awhile.

I support the future robot wars as a smarter alternative to human wars.
it changes the game from mashing soldiers together until someone gives up
to a contest in technology that tests the availability of resources, the education of the people and leadership without putting anyone in danger.
The winner is trusted to know how to run a country and is given more power to do so and the loser gets to lose their job for failing to find a diplomatic solution to a more powerful opponent.

I just watched Chappie last night.

No thank you, Sentient Robot.

Better to have metal die than a human with a family.

War is stupid, so don't let people die for it.

I don't think it has a place in warfare. I don't know how they would program a robot to differentiate between civilians and enemies.

"Tags" was a short story about how man can fight wars while not dying. See if you can find it and read it, it's older than you.

If we have robots to fight then why don't we use them to take care of all the manual labor and throw the idea of money out the window.

No need to even set foot on foreign soil these days. Hack infrastructure, restrict trades/etc, cut off any aid sources. Plenty of ways.

It's dreadful how people drone on about this.
