The Chinese army presented a robotic dog with a weapon – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

A mechanical dog with an automatic rifle on its back was at the center of China’s recent joint military exercise with Cambodia, according to footage from Chinese state broadcaster CCTV. During the exercise, the dog was accompanied by a quadcopter equipped with the same weaponry, during which the vehicles were paired with human soldiers in urban attack tests.

Although these robots may be technologically advanced, they are not yet autonomous. CCTV footage shows the dog Go2 being controlled by a soldier using a handheld device, The Guardian notes.

The robot dog archetype was developed by Boston Dynamics, which was once a subsidiary of Google. He has long-standing ties to the US military. The original version of the BigDog “quadruped robot” was designed as a potential mechanical workhorse for the military. In 2021, Ghost Robotics demonstrated the Vision 60 robot dog, armed with a special gun, and in 2023, the US Army confirmed that it is actively exploring the possibility of using such a system in the field. In 2022, China will demonstrate an armed robot carried by a drone and delivered to a training center.
