South Korea on Sept. 21 announced it was developing highly sophisticated combat robots that could complement the roles of human soldiers on battlefields.

The ministries of defense and information and communication approved a joint project worth 32.4 million dollars to develop the robot system by 2011.

Tentative designs released at a meeting of science ministers here showed three different types of robots that look like a sphinx without wings.

Equipped with six or eight wheels or legs, they would be capable of walking or running through rough terrain.

Armed with weapons and sensors, the robots could be put to combat missions or dangerous tasks such as detecting mines, the ministries said.

I don't these are the CROW systems they also plan to develop, and deploy along the DMZ.

Well, there is just some stuff that wheels can't get over.

Ha ha, what a piece of #! They both look like Transformers (tm) without any of the charm --or the "transforming". Oh my god I am still laughing. It's a platform with an arm holding a rifle... Ha!

Seriously tho', can you ever see a future where the generals just sit back in their recliners and have their robot armies duke it out? What a grand day that would be.
