I'm sure LL realised but hoped it was for more.  But what was her reason?

Chain gun? Rockets? Twin shotguns? Just how big is this bloody hexacopter?  eeek:

Quote
“Fixed with twin stabilised shotguns, [the i9] is also expected to undergo trials with other weapons including rockets and chain guns,” reports The Times. The i9 hexacopter is absolutely built to carry weapons, and to use them.

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

I suppose an automatic shotgun wouldn't have too much recoil but I'd have thought a chaingun would be difficult to cope with...  rubschin:

That's why I wondered just how big the platform was

According to The Times, Strategic Command in the United Kingdom is working with an unnamed British company to develop a 3-foot long, six-rotor drone, designed for urban conflict and named, simply, the i9.

a 3 foot long stable platfom capable of mounting a minigun and firing accurately? Something tells me that aim will be shunted a little.

I smell something....  rubschin:  turd:

Fact is, for indoor you don't need a minigun do you...? Or rocket or bazooka or whatever...  noooo:

A short-barrelled, unchoked shotgun with a light (~24g) load would fill most rooms and barely needs to be aimed. I reckon a light load auto shotgun (recoil absorbed by the loading mechanism) would be easy to accommodate...  Thumbs:

But you could still disable it by throwing a tea towel over it... ::)
