They don't pull their weight, they don't pay their share. We don't need allies.

Quite the opposite. They've turned their backs on liberty, so we should turn our backs on them. How does that mean war?

Alliances are not for the purpose of protecting something as nebulous a "liberty," they are about mutual defense against military aggression. An alliance, at least in most cases, rarely results in influencing your partner's internal/domestic policy as that would kind of be a gross violation of national sovereignty, which most government's take very seriously. So threatening to withdraw from a longstanding and objectively beneficial alliance on the pretext of making them pay us more money for the privilege of being our allies is not only incredibly exploitative, but dangerously short sighted.

Well have no fear, because they discontinued the project, and the remainders are probably gonna either be scrapped and/or put in a tech museum.

Yet you are wrong. The US Marine Corps is testing these beasts of burden robots to go where the Marines go in the field to carry things like food, water, ammunition, comms, etc.

"At the end of December 2015, the BigDog project was discontinued. Despite hopes that it would one day work as a pack mule for US soldiers in the field, the petrol-powered engine was deemed too noisy for use in combat. A similar project for an all-electric robot named Spot was much quieter, but could only carry 40 pounds (18 kg). Both projects are no longer in progress."-Wikipedia on the discontinuation of the BigDog

Also don't ever fucking tell me I'm wrong when you're clearly the one who isn't keeping up with robotics.

In case you are wondering, the US Navy is also testing a ton of other robots. The unclassified ones are a bipedal robot firefighter that can walk through the hallways and hatches of Navy vessels and identify and put out fires. There are also various UAV types that they are testing, some that can be launched from a destroyer which is insane. I believe Navy Unmanned underwater vehicles have already been tested and deployed but one of my friends was talking about it over the summer.

Even back in 2012, we had firescout rotary wing drones on our frigate, not to mention the little man portable tube drones who's name I don't remember, so drones on a destroyer is kind of standard these days, even if it's always just test platform stuff.
#51 - rousingloki (10/19/2016) [-]
I know there are SEVERAL robots being made for the military, and the unclassified one you're talking about is known is Atlas, a robot that was given to several sources to be modified to fit multiple needs. Listen dude, I have nothing against you, and as a robotic engineer it makes me sad that Bigdog had to die, but that's what we're talking about, I didn't say that all robots were cancelled, or that military robots were being halted, all I was saying was that Bigdog will no longer be developed.

Perhaps bigdog, but I trust my friends when they say they've been doing mock patrols with a "robot cow" that's "loud as a motherfucker".

Suck my dick. I have 2 friends that are comms Marines, their company is testing something that looks like the robo cows at 29 Palms. Field radios are retarded heavy and so are the extra parts and batteries. Just because the military does not report everything they do in the news does not mean it isn't happening.
