Sitting atop the Thermonator is one of the company’s ARC Flamethrowers, which uses a built-in fuel tank filled with gasoline or a gasoline/diesel mixture to blast a 30-foot long stream of burning fuel for up to 45 minutes when using its largest capacity battery.

Meaning, I take it, that the thingy can walk around for 45 minutes. Not spew fire, however pathetically, for 45 minutes.

That kind of thing shouldn’t fall under the Second Amendment. It’s not the sort of “arm” one could reasonably “bear”.


Firemen: now the robot dogs are takin’ OUR jerbs!

Always time for IDAT.

Sooooooo…. How are things things at dealing with foothold traps or snares, anyway?

I think that’s the same robot dog that got a fancy ninja outfit and a missile launcher when it was cast as a scary domestic military product at the Army-2022 International Military-Technical Forum.

Just think of how many more forest fires I could start!
