Robot Dogs Now Have Assault Rifles Mounted On Their Backs
Robot dogs have been met with equal parts fascination and fear by the public, but their utility for military applications is becoming undeniable.
By Joseph Trevithick, October 12, 2021, The War Zone

Ghost Robotics and SWORD International have teamed up to create a rifle-toting "robot dog." Called the Special Purpose Unmanned Rifle, or SPUR, the system adds a 6.5mm Creedmoor rifle from SWORD to one of Ghost Robotics' quadrupedal unmanned ground vehicles, or Q-UGVs.
The SPUR made its debut on the show floor at the Association of the U.S. Army's main annual convention in Washington, D.C., which opened yesterday. Though Ghost Robotics is partnered with a number of other companies to explore defense and security applications, among others, for its Q-UGVs — which you can read more about in this past War Zone feature — this appears to be the first example of one of these unmanned systems with an actual weapon mounted on it. Unarmed examples of the Q-UGV are notably already in limited use with the U.S. Air Force's 325th Security Forces Squadron at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida and are being tested by other units within that service.

Go find “Metalhead” (season 4 episode 5) of Black Mirror.

Then give your BMG 50 a nickname when you curl up next to her…
