Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

A new robot for urban warfare and counterterrorisme made by Elbit Systems in Israel. The Viper.
Viper has a special machinegun with a laserpointer capable of firing 1 round and bursts.
It can throw fragmentation,stun and smoke grenades.
The Viper weighs 5 pounds and is about 1 foot long.
It has an electric engine and it can operate on its own with a special program or operated by remote control.
Its capable of climbing stairs, overcome obstacles and at the same time check its surroundings for humans and explosives.
A soldier can carry the robot on its back in a special case.
Its ideal to operate in buildings to take out terrorists, for instance like in Gaza where risks for personell are substantional.
