The Terminator days are here

(INTELLIHUB) — N³’s Gary Franchi breaks down the top 5 most killer military toys for 2015.

“This is like straight out of the movie Terminator,” Franchi said, talking about the autonomous HDT Global Micro Utility Vehicle that can be outfitted with an auto turret. What a mean piece of machinery.

Franchi went on during the broadcast to talk about the “Switchblade” drone which “shoots out of a mortar” and “can make your day Hell if you are on the receiving end of it.”

Another not so “sexy” unmanned aerial vehicle called the “Arrow”, which “looks like a small plane”, was also showcased at the Association of the U.S. Army’s (AUSA) Annual Conference. Apparently the robot has autonomous takeoff and landing capabilities as well.

Lastly Franchi spoke about an autonomous gun-turret wielding riverboat that looks scary a Hell.
