I don't know about putting a C-6 on the back of a 9 inch, 4.5 lb robot but I seem to recall some years ago a movie that showed a swarm of those things armed with needles injecting acid into the hero (and ultimately swarming the villain to take him to his necessary untimely demise - it was Hollywood after all). I can't remember the name of the movie.

Although these things only move at a foot a second imagine the chaos if a swarm of them were loaded with a pound (half a kilo) of C4, or even just a charge and a load of buck shot like a mobile Claymore.

The possibilities......cameras, remote control and walking claymores = a search and destroy minefield.

Is life getting interesting enough yet?

Imagine waht a claymore will do to them  8)

I can see one in Somilia getting swarmed and taken apart in 5 minutes. I am sure the russians will happliy sell jammers in the next couple of years.
