London, Jun 29: Dogs are ready to fight against Taliban! The British Army revealed their latest weapon 'cyborg dogs" to fight against terrorist group Taliban.
Scientists described cyborg troops as mechanical mutts, which would be in action within months. The so called Big Dog echoes the 'AT-AT land walkers" from Star Wars films.
Early tests shows that these 'cyborg dogs" can identify the direction of incoming bullets, lock on to a target and then return fire. Its blast-proof boxer shorts can also protect British troops.
“I tested them with an air rifle, they match the ballistic standards we need." said Matthew Searle, scientist in Cardiff-based BCB International.
Other prototypes being developed include a four-legged 'mule' to carry kit and a robot to transport wounded soldiers from battlefields.
