If a human was caught grappling with a 'real' adversary robot, you would want to tie it up with cables / ropes / adhesive / a net / whatever, to
restrict movement first. Impacts, and even gunshots? Hmmm … yeah they look nice, but they don't do much against robots. What is the 'wounded'
robot supposed to do: lose blood, feel 'pain', or 'bruise'??

He sensationalized a bit, or a lot.
But really just make something that runs on wheels, or tank treads, add some weapons to it a gatling gun or two, maybe even a rail gun and sniper,
make it armored and very maneuverable, hell a few missiles and a flame thrower equipped, and even something kind of like Johnny 5 from that old Short
Circuit movie, only on steroids.
You can have it autonomous or to be remote controlled like a drone, either way.
A few thousandths of those, and most armies would stand little chance against them, most especially third world counties or anything that cant call in
a rain down fire at will.
Hell if they took all the billions they spent in the middle east they could have just copy and pasted a whole bunch of johnny 5s, and ISIS would be
toast easily years ago. And so would most nations foot armies.
Let just say that these guys, would stand somewhere in the negative numbers of a change against an army of Johnny 5s. And most modern army's
boots on the ground, would not fare to well either.
