TALON™ robots are powerful, durable, lightweight tracked vehicles that are widely used for explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), reconnaissance, communications, sensing, security, defense and rescue. They have all-weather, day/night and amphibious capabilities and can navigate virtually any terrain.

Rugged -- TALON robots can take a punch and stay in the fight. One was blown off the roof of a Humvee in Iraq recently while the Humvee was crossing a bridge over a river. TALON flew off the bridge and plunged into the river below. Soldiers later used its operator control unit to drive the robot back out of the river and up onto the bank so they could retrieve it.

Mobile -- Climbs stairs, negotiates rock piles, overcomes concertina wire, plows through snow and surf; can right itself.

fuck, even the daleks couldn't climb stairs

If it got blow off the roof of a Humvee, I like it's chances in a brick fight.

Unless by blown they just meant a strong wind.

Rocks: 'we want more rocks on our pile!'
Talon: 'please rephrase the question'

More concise than Darkstar, talk about a backhanded compliment.

Even when people are on Ignore, you still see their threads. You just get the "Click here to see this post" thing when it displays their posts.
