Boston Dynamics has so far refused to allow its robot dogs to be used as weapons. The weapons manufacturer “Sword” has now developed a similar robot-like dog with a sniper rifle attached.

The new war machine was shown at the US military exhibition AUSA in Washington. The armed robot is able to fire precisely within a range of up to 1200 meters. The system called SPUR (Special Purpose Unmanned Rifle) is controlled remotely.

Thanks to its sensors, SPUR can be used both day and night. According to Sword, the equipment includes a thermal imaging camera, a 30‑x optical zoom, and a special ceramic coating that is supposed to offer camouflage options and protection against modern night vision systems.
