i don't understand what this thing is.
but it would be challenging to try and grab that thing in mid air.
A hunter-seeker!... It can't get me if I don't move... It's too dark in here for it to see clearly...
I've got to grab it -- the suspensor field will make it slippery on the bottom -- I must grip it tightly.

Someone better tune that hovercraft, it's backfiring like crazy!

They have been working on these things for years - my dad got to see a test firing of one out at Aerojet back in the early 80's. This is some Reagan era tech that looks like it's making a comeback.

I dont understand the point of a pulse-jet engine on this. I mean, helicopter blades have made their proof and they're a hell of a lot quieter.
Still, 4 stars because it's still cool.

Helicopters don't work at high altitudes.

Aww, it wants to come out of its cage and play.

Oh yay its one of those bullshit swarm enemies from every FPS ever
I'm pretty sure I've seen this in a few Mega Mans.

Can someone tell me what the hell it does? Explode? Does it have a tiny gun on it? Or maybe it delivers rolled-up messages by crashing through your upstairs window?
This is a test of the propulsion core of the MKV. It's launched into a matching midcourse trajectory with an cloud of warheads and decoys, and realigns to each valid warhead target, releasing a 10 lb kill submunition.
In theory, at least.
I imagine it'll be a billion times easier to come up with a counter to this thing than it'd be to perfect this.
Just like all ABM technology.

"T08?" Is this from the new Terminator movie? That is the sound of hell, friends.

Hey, that was great. Can I have some health care now? Please?
So, I can die at the hands of some Russkies or I can die from my own government's neglect? Sweet.
Everyone knows that the Russians were just coplaying complete ineptitude in order to get us to put our guard down. The second we do, they will band together with the old soviet states and form ULTRAMEGASOCIALISM.
The Ukraine and Latvia will be the legs.

QUIT ARMING THE ROBOTS...or even planning on it.
Fuck, haven't they seen ANY of the Terminator flicks?
