Life in the future

The Russians went and built themselves a mech:

Russia has unveiled a terrifying 4.5-tonne bulletproof robot that can walk and hold weapons in its giant claws – and looks straight out of sci-fi films like Avatar and Robocop.

And it’s made by Kalashnikov.

    I’ll believe it when they actually show it move. Until then, it has no more credibility than those Iranian wonder weapons.

    Let’s see – We never see it move, there are no hydraulic lines to any of the hydraulic cylinders

    Cool static model that doesn’t do crap

    The Russ also built a missile with “unlimited range”, a nuclear engine. first four of them they’ve flown have crashed…

    After never flying more than 2 minutes

    A missile with a nuclear engine? Sounds like the USAF’s 1950s “Project Pluto.” A cruise missile with a payload of small nuclear weapons and a nuclear-powered ramjet engine. In terms of weapon efficiency this was brilliant: the engine exhaust was itself radioactive, so besides dropping its payload of nukes wherever it was told, the thing left a trail of fallout wherever it went.

    It died an ignominious death when they realized there was nowhere they could safely test it.

    They also lost one

    Cool looking mech that, if ever operational, might top out at 5-10 mph? I suspect every squad with an AT-4 will be praying for one of those things to show up near them. Talk about “Pop-up, disposable, biodegradable targets”. Well, the pink squishy things inside will be biodegradable, anyway.

    Russia can’t afford the weapons they’ve got, let alone the ones they want. Big whoop.
