We aren't replacing humans, for what he's talking about here, there will be a human controling them, plus it keeps human safer, a warzone, you put a robot out there instead of a human and we lose less people.

they are doing that now. Go to the US Army official website and search for FCS Future Combat System and youll see that they will soon have more droids and drones.

I saw on some show recently that they have manless robots (remotely-controlled) that can have a ton of different guns mounted on it (including a multi-barrel gernade-launcher and an anti-tank rocket) and sent into dangerous situations instead of troops (they can even climb stairs pretty quickly!). They also said that these robots might even see action in the current war.

robota allready are, TALON and the aerial UAV drones are some of the first. COmming soon would be ground absed combat drones and a UAV class2 vertical flight recon drone (exactly like in CnC Generals) Generals is set in the 2015s and these tech are expected at that time too.

Yes but Xeno, what we are talking about here are Mech's, or Mecha. A humanoid robot that is controlled or programmed by a human for war/rescue/research purposes. Not those little things you see rolling around on the ground, and a UAV is more like a fancy remote controlled plane, as well are the ground vehicles.

UAV class2 is a vertical flight "flying fan" with eyes. Why on earth would anyone want to replace a human? There is no better and smarter soldier than a human as a robot is limited to what the human programs into it. Anyway, since droids are coming who knows maybe mechs wont take so long and I have an idea who will probably be making these - japan.

Actually Germany and Korea already have quite a few prototypes, Japan is just getting there, I belive Germany has one that actually walks and is not a fancy roller blader, thats all the one in that movie is doing, it's sliding around on some wheels. The Koreans had a simple one, but never got very much further.

By that you mean small humanoid or large mech like machine somewhat similar to the APU in the Matrix of the mechs on BF2142 and Tiberian Sun?

Ha, well they are getting bigger, some countries start out big and never work up to it. Korea has one like 8 meters tall.It's the classic design, and not really a huminoid, it has the bent back legs, and more like a clamp for a hand than an actual human-like hand. Germany though has one about 10 meters tall, is a humanoid shape, forward legs, arms are more like arms, etc etc.... And it also has probably one of the greatest achievments, a hand with all fingures than can manipulate quite well. It's not clumbsy, but very smooth and fairly quick. :D
