    Looks like it's just for transporting gear. Estimated payload 340 lbs. That would be great for bugging out! Load it up with three hundred pounds of gear and program it to follow you.

    WOW, that is cool, I want one!! A dog I don't have to clean up after LOL

    Although for bugging out I would want it to be alittle bit quieter, it's a bit noisey

    That payload is before uparmoring, but still, I imagine it can haul a few thousand rounds of 5.56 to the front. Can't help wondering how long it will run on one charge --. Wonder if we can teach one to change targets downrange, if we give it a pair of arms and hands?

    Ah that's two privates head to head in a sleeping bag ,
    Sounds like a small gas engine probably spinning a hydraulics pump and maybe an air compressor.
