The method employed in the recent assassination of the Iran nuclear scientist has elucidated the frightening realities of the emerging battlefields where troops may not confront fellow humans but intelligent robots controlled remotely.
According to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, General Fadawi, the deputy commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, said that after careful investigation, it can now be proved that the Iranian nuclear scientist Fahrizad was assassinated. On that day, 11 armed members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard were also with Fahrizad at the scene, and there were no criminals or assassins at the scene.
On the day of the assassination operation, there was a Nissan vehicle 150 meters away from the scene of the operation. A remote-controlled machine gun equipped with an intelligent satellite system is installed on this car. This machine gun can use facial recognition and artificial intelligence systems to lock on Fahrizad. The machine gun was actually fired from behind and directly penetrated the car.
This remote-controlled machine gun fired only 13 rounds, and the other bullets were fired by the bodyguards of Fahrizad at the scene. The guards fired fiercely at the target, but there was no one on the target. What witnesses saw was that Fahrizad’s guards were shooting at suspicious targets. At the same time, a car explosion did occur at the scene.
But it was not a self-destructed car, but a Nissan car with a remote-controlled machine gun. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard stated that after investigation, it was discovered that the Nissan car exploded for two purposes.
The first was to self-detonate and destroy all evidence. The second purpose was to kill the guards at the scene. After the guards finally approached the Nissan car equipped with a remote-controlled machine gun after the firefight, the car suddenly exploded. Only that way was it possible for 13 bullets to kill Fahrizad, 11 guards and 1 driver: 13 people, not to mention that Fahrizad was hit by 4-5 bullets. In other words, many guards were killed by the car bomb.
The 11 well-trained elite guards were all masters selected from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. Good at shooting, fighting, and very brave. At the scene, it was surmised that a guard used his body as a human shield to block the gun for Fahrizad, but the scientist was still accurately hit by 4 to 5 bullets. Satellite remote control machine guns equipped with artificial intelligence systems are just too scary.
This did raise several questions. There was no killer at the scene. All shots fired by the bodyguards of Fahrizad were wasted. At first, some bystanders were arrested as suspects. Now it has been discovered that the arrest was wrong. The third is that humans cannot beat the artificially intelligent satellite remote control machine guns in gun battles. 13 hits, no human opponent, and was the opposition completely wiped out in 3 minutes.
Furthermore, if an artificial satellite remote control machine gun is installed on a miniature tracked vehicle, it is an invincible robot.
This becomes very frightening to imagine where hundreds of such robots whether they are defending positions or breaking through defenses. For the human army, it is a huge test because the robot gunner is stable, not afraid, and not psychologically fluctuating. If in addition to machine guns, there are 30 mm machine guns and anti-tank missiles, then the scenario becomes even more dramatic.
Sadly, this is the likely scenario troops may now have to contend with in the emerging battlefields.
