I envision a mother ship launching a swarm of dinghy sized boats that are armed with cruise missiles. Maybe armed submerged buoys that surface when an enemy ship comes near and blasts the fuck out of them.

I’m not comfortable with robots that carry guns the size of a freight train


As someone who maintains high end automated systems that nonetheless break all the time: hahahahahaha


What’s the point of robots fighting robots? The country with the best supply chain wins as it produces its robots faster. So war makes no sense unless human lives are lost? So what’s the point of war just to end lives fighting for some dumb cause?
