The prototype was presented at the American Army Association convention according to BFM Buisiness.

For now the model is awarded and tested only by the US military who could use it to provide assistance while keeping soldiers safe.

The weapon inserted on the robot’s back is an ML-17 Mod 1 and can accurately fire 6.5-millimeter bullets up to 1200 meters.
