Quadrotor killer drone with machine gun and self-destruct module: a deadly weapon of the future

Apr 24 2012 - 8 Comments

First of all let’s have a look at the following increble video.

It shows a mini quadrotor drone carrying a machine gun in order to bring remote-controlled death from above. The prototype drone, performs a short-range reconnaissance, neutralizes some unarmed suspects as well as a group of bad guys playing cards, before entering inside a vehicle initiating a self-destruction sequence to destroy it.

Impressive.

Even if the whole video is fake (at least according to some experts who have “inspected” the footage, and to Russia Today, that has published an article on the subject), the quite famous author who uses his nickname “FPS Russia” to show how to use various kinds of arms, believes that a deadly gun attached to a sort of remote-controlled toy is the low-cost weapon of the future.

Indeed, it will be an extremely dangerous killing device for soldiers. And ill-intentioned willing to shoot someone.

    Per tirar giù quell’aggeggio può bastare una ben assestata schioppettata a pallettoni ….. e, se non sbaglio, i Marines hanno in dotazione uno “shotgun” Benelli adatto alla bisogna …..

    A good shotgun blast may be enough to pull that thing down ….. and, unless I am mistaken, the Marines have been supplied a Benelli “shotgun” well suited to the task …..

    This is a fake or something
    1 it would not be able to carry enough ammo to be of any use on a batlefield
    2 recoil on such a small and light thing would make it flip over after 2 rounds, it wouldn’t hit a target in a thousand years.
    3 too small to carry weapons and a camera and a targetting device of some kind.

    Well, it seems that we have all been hookwinked! The quadrotor depicted is actually computer generated and it is an advertisement for the Call of Duty game from Activision. FRSRussia is out of touch on this one. Any comments or rebuttals? RJF.

      Hi Ron,
      Actually I had written in the article that the video was a fake, but maybe most readers were mesmerized by the video and didn’t care much about the text.

        David, Actually, a photo of the BAe mini gun mounted under the fuselage of the V-22 is more likely to attract attention. Ron.

    How much would one of these cost?
