These models are fitted with a 28 mm and also with smart missiles and the type of the missile varies according to the terrain and the circumstances.
One may think that the judgement day has begun, but the real truth is that there is always a human involved in controlling them. These robots are fitted with state of art audio and visual receptors which are instantly transmitted to the controller. Ultimately the controller is the person combating with the enemy with the robot as his weapon.
Even the military laws are binary coded and fed to the robot. These models are capable of combating on their own and the big surprise is that these machines can make even wiser decisions than human beings.
