There's also a 6 legged walker out that does actually step over whats in it's way. It's designed to be used in forrestry, with safe removal of trees in mind. It looked like a scorpion, but it was completley ready for commercial use. Actually is in commercial luse if I remember correctly. I'll see if I can't find the link.
Looks like a big paintball robot to me. I can just imagine the military looking at this and modifying the concept. Make it fast and maneuverable over land and add very good AI and you have something resembling a big, fast, smart dinosaur.

Explosives... Of course, such a trap would not work for a 6+ legged walker.
For my walker I want a Chevaline.

I dont see much use as a military weapon. That thing would just be a hige target sticking up like a sore thumb, and I bet one 120mm round would knock it on its butt and then what
