    semi-autonomous vehicle.

    Speaking of the gun... [It] isn't real. It's decorative. Because the Army isn't quite ready yet for armed semi-autonomous robots that are armed and armored like that. What's that you say? SWORDS, the armed robots currently in Iraq? There's no autonomy there. They do what human controllers tell them to do - not what a software algorithm thinks might be a good idea.
    Also, this thread is pretty aged. I'd suggest checking when the last post was made.
