A new statistic came out revealing that for every 50 soldiers there's one robot drone out in the battle field, with this number increasing. The obvious theory is for every bullet a bot takes it's a life saved. Spawning from the makers of iRobot comes Foster Miller's Talon.
These armed robots travel 5.2 MPH and carry a variety of different weapons including an M16 rifle, a 5.56 mm SAW M249, a 7.62 mm M240 machine gun, a .50 cal M82 Barrett rifle, a six barreled 40 mm grenade launcher or quad 66 mm M202A1 FLASH incendiary weapon. Remote operation of one of these bad boys is as easy as handling an XBox controller.
