Iraq Built a Robot with Guns

Irag has put together a nice Roomba - but their version has guns and is designed to take out ISIS. I love the idea, but see so many ways that this could go wrong. Still, anything that keeps troops safe from the bad guys is not a bad thing. It looks like a cross between a Halo Warthog and a Humvee. I like it.

Since details about the robot are scarce, one has to wonder how often Iraq plans to use it and if the country's government is planning to build more. Elliot Zweig, deputy director of the Middle East Media Research Institute, shed some on the country's plans for it. He told DefenseOne that the video with Baghdad Post's story talks about how Iraq will deploy the robot to retake Mosul, a city in Northern Iraq that ISIS occupied in 2014.
