How long will it take them to go from teleoperating one drone to teleoperating two, or four? Or ten?

old news.

that being said, I'd like to see the after-action report. my feeling is that these robots are nowhere near mobile nor robust enough for urban combat.
Whoops. Am I eggy.

I shall now commit hari-kari... On the person who gave me that link insinuating it was new news.

Otherwise known as murder.

In any event, an after-action of that thing in action would be good. Sadly, they look like a good rifle round could put it seriously out of action. A grenade or an IED would just wipe it out, and there goes a quarter of a million dollar piece of hardware.

Still, sometimes that beats the alternative. In any event, it's a step, an important step.
the whole idea of ground-based combat drones is rather ridiculous, given current tech.

roto-drones with assault rifles would be far better, at least then you have the speed, manueverability, and lack of navigational problems taken care of.

the only issue is flying time.
