They're only supply carriers - glorified pack mules. But I imagine our troops will be able come up with some good tactical advantages with them.

Yeah I guess it could look a little creepy. The thing is so lifelike when it's slipping on the ice you almost feel sorry for it. :D

But just wait. Right now the only AI in this is to keep it standing up and walking. In the not-so-distant future it'll be smarter than us.

Those are very cool and smart- protect the boys as much as we can and keep them out of harms way, when possible
