    USA always tried to make the world safe from terrorism and always face them in front. USA is good on its place. Don't care what terrorism supporter says.

  • jeralden monato says:

    nice,, man

  • MrRahja666 says:

    you should put there high diameter but thin motors not normal type

  • MrRahja666 says:

    gun / cannon is awesome but sound of e motors quote – suck balls ''

  • DAN Malinowski says:

    the first thing to take out is the Honda generator, then the gunner,run over,grab the fifty..if I was a terrorist,just sayin..

  • Defcon says:

    Nice ! :O

    But what is the name of the machinegun on the UGV ? I know this an M2 but the barrel is strange, anyone know the name of this variant ? (I see this model on Stryker too)


  • crazy.scott NB says:

    the brrt at the end was amazing XD gets me every time

  • Simon Fottrell says:

    It's a bloody noisy thing

  • Harbor Lights says:

    This soldiers are not prepared to go to the war they worried much more about their wages and insurance

  • Dark Ronin says:

    I prefer more, the Russian robots, those things are a beast, 30 mm cannon, ATAKA anti-tank missiles and a coaxial machinegun. Those things burn..

  • Alfonso Castro says:

    we metal gear now.

  • Joseph Elias says:

    Yet more American waste…spending billions on this instead of pursuing welfare and happiness for its own people.
    Oh and btw, good job on building those buggies…One blast, many casualties…
    Good job murica

  • Joseph Elias says:

    so pretty cumbersome, unreliable and still requires human intervention during jaming.

  • wigon says:

    What a fascinating look into the future of warfare. I noticed that they cut out some of the audio right as a soldier was going into details on these systems. lol! Nice OpSec on the editors part.
    Still I'm curious why they had human soldiers gunning on the UGV's mounting the M2 .50 cal MG's. While it's nice to have the ability for manual control of the system, ideally a two-man team of remote operators should work as a team driving and gunning.

    As some people pointed out, certainly these could be knocked out easily by RPG's, however if costs can be brought down to a bare minimum, they would be far cheaper than the cost of a soldier.

    It's true however that the Russians are FAR ahead in this area as they have developed small cameras and sensors able to track vehicles and human beings autonomously as can be seen on their T-14 demonstrations. The T-14 is designed, btw, to operate as a UGV depending on the ECM environment.

    What is not stated here or in most public forums is that ECM can render all of these systems useless. For that reason both Russia and the U.S. are rushing development of truly autonomous systems that do not need ANY human operator in situations where they are essentially sent into free-fire zones far from friendly troops (and hopefully civilians). Current prototypes have sensors to detect muzzle flash, dust/smoke puffs, incoming small arms fire, human heat signatures, advanced motion detection, and advanced AI IFF.

    As such the technology is almost there. But with every technology comes counter-measures. The Iranians for example, already hacked into and captured one of our most sophisticated stealth UAV's. If Iran can do that, you can be assured that their allies in Russia can do this as Russia has some of the best hackers in the world.
    Even with autonomous systems, there will be remote codes and BLUFOR transmitters that provide the potential of being hacked into especially if one is damaged, captured, and analyzed by the enemy.

    As such encryption modules will have to be changed daily and will have to include a vast range of different forms of encryption that leave no pattern. The modules themselves should likewise be of different types with a range of interfaces so as to keep an enemy guessing which one is being used. This can include sensors that pickup audio cues to activate communications with a ground station. Secondary comms units can also equip the unit along with fail safe's that cause a unit to self-destruct with a small explosive charge.

    So the challenges are immense and we should not kid ourselves that these will fully replace humans until the AI becomes near-fool proof regarding IFF.
    Likewise BLUFOR tracking systems, need to be highly modular with daily code changes along with the ability to change the codes immediately if a BLUFOR soldier is captured and his tracker is compromised.

    Did you see russian new robots they shoot alone this is crap

  • Nostro200 says:

    Why is this classified as a robot'?

  • Moinuddin Qazi says:

    what is the name of the jeep on 8:03

  • Jah Reigns says:

    Can I play?

  • Winbean winlite says:

    That roller with the gun mounted on it looks cool but, I don't know about the gas looking container in front of it?

  • blokkbozz Megadon says:

    the next step is a machingun on the cheetah robot or on the robotic dog…

  • Donald says:

    holy metal gear

  • Homing Liu says:

    T-1 Battlefield Robot !!!!!

  • AGNUS says:

    Yeah, I did the correct thing ti watch all the video. The ending brrrrrt worth all ☺

  • Nick Mckeehan says:

    it would suck ass to fight a do u kill it?

  • Myballsitchsomethingfierce says:

    They need to find a way to dampen the sound, a guided missile would take these things out a mile away.

  • ป.v นุนะ says:

    not work on rush time … only 30% robot 70% man control

  • dragon888193ftw says:

    Lmao, just spray it with water. Or do as we did back in my country, blow these fuckers and their machinery to pieces with $10 IEDS.


    Not fair….the military get all the best stuff!

  • صقر كوردستان says:

    Not save and tooo much sounds….

  • MrSlidthunder says:

    Can you imagine Isis getting their hands on one of these?

  • Jason Fuentes says:

    With this current operational design, I suppose these robots could take the place of a heavy weapons section, carrying fiddys, mortars, and ammo. All the operators need to do are range cards and firing.

  • leakagetrip says:

    super expensive I bet

  • Alex says:

    A weapon to surpass metal gear?

  • Wayne Wright says:

    I think you guys are missing the point this is a man portable 12.7mm machine gun

  • Cave Johnson says:

    where's liberty Prime?

  • Dazel Charm Dayondon says:

    lol.. f'cking badass..

  • M Skallywagg says:

    how noisy

  • Divinus Secreto says:

    It's in early stages but this is definitely how the future of combat will look in about 5/10 years.

  • Chino Duh says:

    the military is getting lazy, and this is the early stages of Skynet

  • Nucleus Mang says:

    yea the end is definitely in site. I'm sure there already working on automatic enemy detection/engaging technology.
