Mechanization is starting to get scary

March 19, 2008

Check this out:

I’m glad to see U.S. developers getting in on the action of mechanized combat systems.  Even if this thing only serves as a supply transport it would be quite useful.  Just think if future iterations were quiet, faster, and able to carry more.  Just the walking itself is somewhat unnerving.  Imagine a full unit of combat mechs running down the streets.  If that doesn’t make you pee your pants, you need to see a urologist.

    Yea, no doubt, that is quite impressive. Especially the jumping like a deer bit. Mount some machine guns & missile launchers on this with armor…phew. There’d be no getting away. I like the noise. Maybe make it more like the ‘Rebel Yell’…high pitched unerving, dibillating sound…that could be a double whammy. Too bad the gov’t is making it. God help us all!

    Yeah, making it purposefully noisy would be a possible remedy, but that would limit its capabilities in combat. I think they would be more useful if they could find a way to maintain a degree of silent movement and surprise.

    True…imagine if it could do both! You know, stealth, and then when they bust upon you, go into disarray mode and scare the heck out of you with just explosive sound.

    yeah, would be cool.
