Russia Developed a Terminator-Style Robot That Can Shoot Guns

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin shared a propaganda video on Friday publicizing Russia’s unmanned warfighting capabilities.

The video showed images of an unmanned tank and small aerial vehicle taking out targets on an established course. The most striking visual, though, popped up at the end, when a human-like robot tore through targets using handguns.

Rogozin’s accompanying tweet roughly translates to “Russian battle robots – guys with an iron character.”
The video, aimed at unabashedly promoting Russia’s technological capabilities in the best possible light, exemplified an expansion of unmanned warfighting machines across the globe.

Evidence has shown that Russia had used an aerial drone to monitor civilian movements after the Assad regime’s chemical attack on civilians in Syria last week. After the drone observed chemical attack victims seeking aid at a local hospital, a Russian warplane bombed the hospital in an apparent effort to cover up the attack.

As Rogozin’s tweet showed, Russia will continue to develop unmanned killing machines.
