When will infantry get drones?

Asked by Ltryptophan (9112 points ) January 5th, 2012

The airforce gets a nice stealth drone. Why not a mini-M1 Abrams drone? Or a drone artillery piece?

Let the robot war begin…

Scientists have already developed meat-eating robots and the US military is interested. Someone really needs to tell the fucking lunatics in the Pentagon that “Terminator” is not a book of instructions.

It would only be a robot war if they were attacking other robots, unfortunately its people they kill many of whom are innocent women and children

I find it hypocritical and ironic when the USA accuses enemies of being cowards by using “human shields” whilst they attack with RC robots.

drones already exist but not in the shape or form you are thinking of. There are even invisibility clokes, or at least that is what I’ve heard.

Oh, they will. They will. Tech companies are no doubt working on whatever future war gadgets they could sell. Hope those future infantry guys don’t find themselves out of jobs when the tech themselves render them obsolete. They should hope for human dependent remote controlled android soldiers they could operate while in the comfort of there own homes.
