LS3 Robotic Pack Mule Field Testing by US Military
From Boston Dynamics
However, a pack mule is employed in rough terrain and mountains.
One wonders if this robotic mule can walk on mountain tracks and foot path which does not have a pre-described gradient nor the rise and fall of the track, footpath or trail symmetrical.
On the face of it, it does have value, if it could be used in the plains to move reorganisation stores in bulk through a infantry safe-lane cleared in a minefield after an objective has been captured.
If the robotic mule can be folded like a paratrooper's bicycle, then carriage to the battlefield in the F echelon vehicle would be feasible.
A trifle noisy though and that can give away the position.
Beautiful as robots. Almost cute. But frightfully noisy. How do they reproduce?
