Do we have any such similar technology? Attaching AK-47 to drones is a good idea. As they are remotely controlled, we can use them for border patrol in difficult areas. It can be effective in checking infiltration from across the border. We have several drones and are working on attaching bombs/missiles to them. Something or the other is causing delays. But since AK-47 are light weight, can't we get smaller drones in large numbers? It can save precious lives of army jawans.https://governmentslaves.news/2019/...kes-without-a-human-pressing-the-fire-button/
SLAUGHTERBOTS China is unleashing killer robots and stealth drones that carry out targeted airstrikes without a human pressing the fire button

Emigrate While You Still Can...
CHINA is aggressively unleashing lethal fully autonomous drones that can carry out targeted military strikes, a think tank has warned.
The killer drones and pilotless aircraft fitted with AK-47 rifles are being exported to Asia, Africa and combat zones in the Middle East.
US national security think tank Center for a New American Security (CNAS) said in a report that Chinese officials see this AI ‘arms race’ as a threat to global peace.
Gregory C Allen, the author of the report, said China is rushing to integrate ever more sophisticated artificial intelligence into weapons and military equipment.
He pointed out that drones, both large and small, are a particular example of a type of weaponry that is increasingly becoming automated.
In the US, drones are capable of basic autopilot, performing simple tasks like flying in a circle around a target.
But China is being “more aggressive about introducing greater levels of autonomy closer to lethal use of force,” he says.
One example is the Blowfish A2 drone, which China exports internationally and which Mr Allen says is advertised as being capable of “full autonomy all the way up to targeted strikes.”
‘TARGETED PRECISION STRIKES’
The Blowfish A2 “autonomously performs complex combat missions, including fixed-point timing detection and fixed-range reconnaissance, and targeted precision strikes.”
Depending on customer preferences, Chinese military drone manufacturer Ziyan offers to equip Blowfish A2 with either missiles or machine guns.
Mr Allen wrote: “Though many current generation drones are primarily remotely operated, Chinese officials generally expect drones and military robotics to feature ever more extensive AI and autonomous capabilities in the future.
“Chinese weapons manufacturers already are selling armed drones with significant amounts of combat autonomy.”
China is also interested in using AI for military command decision-making.
FUTURE OF WARFARE
According to the report, Zeng Yi, a senior executive at China’s third largest defense company, said AI will be at the core of future warfare.
“Mechanized equipment is just like the hand of the human body. In future intelligent wars, AI systems will be just like the brain of the human body,” Zeng said, according to the report.
He added that “AI may completely change the current command structure, which is dominated by humans” to one that is dominated by an “AI cluster.”
This opinion is consistent with broader thinking in Chinese military circles.
We should be wishing for demonstration of this capability by Chinese ASAP.China is building a long-range cruise missile fired from a shipping container
(Russian Club-K picture)
China is building a long-range cruise missile fired from a shipping container that could turn Beijing's large fleet of freighters into potential warships and commercial ports into future missile bases. The new missile is in flight testing and is a land-attack variant of an advanced anti-ship missile called the YJ-18C, according to American defense officials. The new missile also could undermine China's current buying & building spree for international commercial port projects. The missile will be deployed in launchers that appear from the outside to be standard international shipping containers used throughout the world for moving millions of tons of goods, often on the deck of large freighters.
The YJ-18C is China's version of the Club-K cruise missile built by Russia that also uses a launcher disguised as a shipping container. Israel also is working on a container-launched missile called the Lora. The YJ-18C container missile also is being developed as China is engaged in a major global program called the Belt and Road Initiative that will provide Chinese military forces and warships with expanded access through a network of commercial ports around the world.
China operates or is building deep water ports in several strategic locations, including Bahamas, Panama, and Jamaica that could be used covertly to deploy ships carrying the YJ-18C. Other locations include Pakistan's Gwadar port near the Arabian Sea and in Djibouti on the Horn of Africa close to the strategic choke point of the Bab el Mandeb at the southern end of the Red Sea.
Navy Capt. Jim Fanell, a former Fleet intelligence chief, said a containerized YJ-18 anti-ship cruise missile would add a significant threat to the Navy given the volume of Chinese container ships that enter US ports on the west & east coast, within range of the US fleet. "If this capability is confirmed, it will require a completely new screening regime for all PRC flagged commercial ships bound for U.S. ports," Fanell said. Additionally the container-launched missiles could be targeted in foreign ports used by Chinese-flagged merchant vessels.
"Potentially, Chinese missile launching containers could be stored near the Port of Seattle, waiting for the day they can launch an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) warhead-armed missiles over the Bangor nuclear ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) base," Fisher said. "The EMP blast might take out electronics on submarines & all over the base without having to launch strikes from China. Washington would be in chaos, would not know against whom to retaliate & perhaps China uses US distraction to begin its real objective, to attack Taiwan."

For a country that wants to dominate global sea trade it really is the dumbest thing they could do.We should be wishing for demonstration of this capability by Chinese ASAP.
This will the right excuse to restrict Chinese container ships 300-400 km from anti OBOR countries.
