Gladiator to Join the Marines

Posted 8 Jul 2003 at 03:52 UTC by The Swirling Brain Share This

The Gladiator robot looks to join Marine Corps says the Honolulu Advertiser. The Gladiator is a highly lethal Unmanned Ground Vehicle with more guns than... well, more than just about everything else on earth combined. And this deadly vehicle is used for of all things crowd control? Yes crowd control, I'm sure any boy with a rock that gets a look at this gun totin machine they'd be going the other way, that's for sure. But really could be handy in hot spots around the world which might be too dangerous for our Marine troops (if that were possible - GO MARINES!). It can shoot bullets or paint balls and can be operated over a mile away (non-autonomous) and can see through smoke, even in the dark and all. They say the remote operation plays just like a video game (Isn't that a scary thought?). If a dream could cast this playable station into your advanced game boy hands, it would cost a min ten dough of only $150k.

You can see lots of pictures of the Gladiator in this US Marine Corps article.
