A pack of this thing is hunting you day and night in the woods you live in, they wont stop until it kills you.
How would you survive?
Ok so what if it had a battery that lasted for 24 hrs of fully operational action. ie: Hunting, Attacking, Running, etc.
Standard patrolling was out 12 hrs, relived by secondary, RTB, battery relplaced, on standby to relive secondary.
Runners carrying ammunition and new batteries, capable of mechanical refreshment available during advanced tactics and firefights.
Forrested area too thick for direct unmanned over watch except for thermal target sighting.
How would you defeat 20 total?
Fugg that's ballzy.
But how does that kill any of them? You alone would be forced to ride back to the FOB where they kill you. If you fell off it would notice you and kill you. If you killed it then it's robo pack buddies would notice you and then kill you. .
honestly you could probably disable it just by jabbing a screwdriver into various parts like the camera/whatever that thing is on top (lidar?). the probelm would be getting close enough
Almost as good as that Russian CGI weapons system.
It will be years and years before they can get it to balance the recoil on a decent caliber weapons system. They will be field tested in battle with grenade launchers or small rocket propelled explosives.
Sometimes I wonder if darpa or other groups use k to ask questions to see what a random mix of people think of things. Like in this example, Boston dynamics wants to know what k would do to stop one of their robots. I'd try tiger pits everywhere
camouflage, cover and concealment for the daytime TV camera, find and blend with an object close enough to body heat (or lower my own body heat enough to blend with something, ala Ahnold's mud scene in Predator). If I have enough time to, drastically change the terrain enough to give the pack a real challenge in terms of vertical movement. Traps and distractions to divert the attention and sensors. trip wire flares, punji pits, etc. I don't expect to kill them. I just have to outsmart them. Part of outsmarting them would be to find their limitations and exploit them.
How do you know I didn't drape a camo poncho over the top, eh?
Anyway, it's not a person. It might not even make the connection that "metallic thing in forest" = "target acquired"
If their camera sensors are anything like the FLIR and shit I work on, which I'm pretty sure they are, all things considered... Then, yeah, they actually can, lol. But that's assuming they're decked out with the latest and greatest that most normal military units don't even have yet.
Military things are illegal when the government wants them to be.
If the government wanted to come after you, they'd probably do it based on you exporting munitions or military-related information, because it's accessible online.
You may laugh, but it's very real, and the American government has used the argument before.
I don't think the original question gives enough information, and any expansion on the question is a fuckall stupid situation that's guaranteed death, but you somehow feel that people should answer seriously. How spread is their patrol? What's the actual armament, and capabilities of said armament? If you have good enough firearm and aim, I'd go for hitting the camera's that they use for aiming, to make the gun blind while fleeing further. If there's multiple in a close enough area, maybe stick to that plan, but have to account for flanks quickly closing. Maybe make destraction devices to draw attention away while disabling the nearest.
Load 12 ga. shells with magnets.
Spray paint grenades to fuck with cameras/sensors.
looks pretty simple to defeat. come up behind it and throw a blanket over it. bash with a rock anything with a lens/glass.
or you could just, you know, trip it with some wire so it falls on its side.
easy just call uncle Sam
>uncle sam speaking
>"yes I am in the woods, could you help out"
>say no more
>bring a roll of snare wire
>make a bunch of snares
>make a ton of them between you and pursuers
>"OH NO THE ROBUT WILL GET ME NOW"
>WERWERWERWERWER as robuts chase you
>millions in cutting edge hardware rendered useless with a few bucks of wire
Just wait until you can hear it stomping and grinding and whirring through the woods, then jog away.
The US Military decided against using them because they were too fucking loud.
A pack of this thing is hunting you day and night in the woods you live in, they wont stop until it crushes you.
How would you survive?
Assuming that there is a rotation for battery changes.
>my woods is majority swamp
>go out as far as I could in the center
>bring big rifle
Wait for each one to go by and shoot the MG on top. Run up to it when they are all rendered defenseless and rape it with an blunt instrument.
I would capture one and teach it how to love, then we would slowly repeat the process with its brethren until they all decided to revolt against their cruel masters. Then I would become the pack-leader and rule the mecha forest.
>the woods you live in
I'm in the middle of a big city. How good are they at recognizing faces? Are they willing to hurt other people in order to get me?
Anyway I'd love to see them open a door. Opposable thumbs are a beautiful thing.
