    But it's most realistic in a combat setting, especially when we're talking about mass production for, say, a very powerful security force.

    Realistic? What do you mean?

    I think continuous tracks are the most efficient mechanism for movements. And with a rotative canon you have the most efficient weapon for combat and warfare.

    What? No.

    I'm just saying that continuous tracks are the best mechanism for movement, and that bipedal, quadrupedal or any mechanism that us legs is downgrading technology. Like the best that quadrupedal movement can do it would be to go up stairs, but ones you are developing the technology for that you can make continuous tracks to be able to do that too.

    Tracks is your best bet for reliable mobility, especially over rough terrain. Now if you can figure out how to make something that has the flexibility and sense of a human or any highly agile creature, then there's a bit of a game changer. Otherwise you're gonna end up with C3PO shit.

    building a huge robot would not be wise specially the amount of metal you will use to build one... unless you are fighting a huge alien. lol

    Um not true at all. We build tanks and fighters, right? That takes a lot of metal.

    I think materials are the least problem.
