the next generation of super soldiers can be rendered ineffective by a small pothole

what is this thing supposed to do ?
Accidie
Well, of course it would be good for reconnaissance applications.

gravelstudios
It's supposed to make the terrorists laugh so hard that they don't notice the drones coming.

SteamPoweredKleenex
Reconnaissance applications? Like what?

"Day fifteen. The other three tires have accepted me as one of their own. I just hope this falafel truck doesn't get used in an embassy bombing. More later."

Roll around campgrounds. Obviously.

namtar
Well, one good thing would be that it could sit still and observe.

The US Armed forces need options when spying on brown people they're about to kill.

Accidie
I'm sad that nobody got my Venture Brothers 'Walking Eye' reference.

Jimmy Labatt
All my stars for Mr. Kleenex (best laugh in many moons)

Seems like if you made it a little more tire shaped but still able to stand up via gyroscopes or however those things work, it'd be pretty hard to detect. Nobody expects a random tire, especially one that moves around on its own when nobody's looki-- fuck it. Stars for SPK and Accidie, I should watch more of that show.

fedex
yeah SPK, these are for you

That guy
Are you saying you would NOT have fun with this at the park?

Get your head checked, man.

baleen
SPK made me laugh too.

But I think if you mounted night vision cameras on these and put bombs inside, they could make cheap land predators. They look like they are able to navigate over rougher terrain than a small remote control vehicle, and if they fall off a cliff, they are fine no matter what side they land on.

I imagine a thousand cheap versions of these bumping around the mountains and streaming all the footage into a truck somewhere. They would be able to collect a lot more than a drone 5,000 feet above.

baleen
Which means fewer dead people that shouldn't be dead.

SteamPoweredKleenex
...because the stationary land mines have such a low civilian body count.

I'm not saying you don't want bad people dead, but I fear you over-estimate the accuracy with which the military can deliver on the promise of even halfway-morally defensible warfare that doesn't result in dead innocents and more radicalization. Not to mention what eventually becomes of the ordinance if one is damaged and can't be recovered.

Caminante Nocturno
Do you have any idea how disappointed I am that this thing isn't big enough for someone to ride in?
Bus_Aint_Comin
oh! i thought there *was* somebody in there D:

Just wait. I've seen research into manned war balls in paleofuturistic magazine articles, for both WW 1 and 2. It is immediately apparent that its a retarded idea that will never get past the drawing board, which means it will never become a well-known military tragedy, which means it keeps getting suggested every few decades.

If you play World of Warcraft, you may recognize these from the Siege of Orgrimmar.

They oughta see my robotic war balls. Kick 'em and I'll warble.
The Mothership
Just aim for the tire, it'll blowout and then it won't be able to move.
StanleyPain
Hey, wait! It's not the end! He's been reincarnated as a tricycle!

This is supposed to keep Number Six in the Village, obviously.
Spaceman Africa
I hope they make it like Gantz where it can produce assault rifles
ashtar.
I just hope it will mock the marines when it assigns them points for their kills.

oddeye
just wait till it uncurls and raises it's shields, jedi will be running scared
