I'll be bahk.Not only savings, I am one of those who believe that we are toying with really dangerous stuff in inducting robots into military service. As self-learning computers gain maturity robots are also gaining autonomy and potentially with this development, humans will get less control over them. There must be an international agreement on the limits of the robots that can be sent to war. And there must always be a man in the loop to override or shit down the system.
Then interntaional law and laws on war should be amended to reflect/include these new technology. Who is responsible in case an autonomous robot runs amuck and indiscriminately start killing people?
Fortunetly robots never will replace humans nor human operated vehicles. Because of many reasons. And fully autonomous robots are out of armed forces interests.
However robots can be good support for soldiers and manned vehicles, for reccon or send to hot zones for force reccon and as decoys... expensive decoys.
Besides this, it is really more easy to manouver manned tank with crew and vision blocks + hatches that if needed can be opened, that vehicle with cameras only... it is much easier to use aerial robots than land ones.
they can take out heavily armed terrorists in urban area, not only that but vehicles with remote weapon station is good for CT and urban combat. These are not autonomous, they are remotely controlled.bots can only assist and not fight a direct war. there is a limitation in the utility of bots in battlefield. one cannot rely completely on the robots for getting into the house and freeing hostages. one glitch in software or sensor and instead of terrorists/enemy hostages are roasted. moreover final assault and plunder even in rise of nation is done by ground troops.
robots can do wonders in intel gathering- drones like harop, they can deploy missile and artillery in far away dangerous regions thru land or sea- eg N/A. but they can never replace a man in army uniform
nothing can match human capability and flexibility and not to mention on the spot use of BRAIN.they can take out heavily armed terrorists in urban area, not only that but vehicles with remote weapon station is good for CT and urban combat. These are not autonomous, they are remotely controlled.
