Crusher UGCV shows up for duty

Sibling blog Engadget posted about this six-wheel military spybot. The unmanned Crusher UGCV (Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle) will be used for troop assistance and be capable of carrying four tons of payload over the most rugged of terrains. The spybot is powered by a hybrid turbo diesel/ battery engine with a top speed of 26 miles per hour. Cameras and other sensory equipment allow the Crusher to function solo up to a kilometer away.
