Black Night Transformer
Source : Naval Open Source INTelligence: U.S. military look into remote controlled 'helicopter truck transformers' that can be sent on rescue missions WITHOUT a driverIt utilizes the vertical take off and landing of a helicopter and couples it with the off road driving capabilities of a truck. And, what's even better, is that this robotic warrior is remote controlled.
Introducing Black Night Transformer, a specially made truck that comes complete with eight rotors - four on each side - that will spring out for take off and then fold in while driving.
The machine was built as part of a U.S. military desire for a 'multi-mission medical and casualty evacuation unmanned air vehicle/unmanned ground vehicle', according to Pop Science.
