    Just slap a machine gun on it and call it a day.

    Is it just me, or does that robot just look like a juicy target to destroy by the enemy?

    Going to need a bigger frame, in order to put a gun on it.

    (Unless you don't care about accuracy. If that's the case, just put a bomb on it....)

    Besides....the robots you see, aren't the ones you need to worry about!

    THAT'S what I am talking about!!!

    The real beauty to this is not so much as a weapon's platform, but, as a literal "Mule."

    A small squad, with one of these, could:

    --Carry in far more supplies. (Food, First Aid, Water, Ammo....)

    --The platform itself could be converted to carry a wounded soldier (So, instead of two men, being forced to carry a wounded buddy, these "Mules" can do it better, and safer, while allowing those two men to walk armed....)

    --Can serve as a separate weapon platform.

    --Who knows what other "gadgets" could be attached? (A small, flying drone for recon. A small radar system. Etc.)
