Military robots for over 65 years!

It is possible that a Goliath self-propelled mine and not fully specifically be called a robot, but still when viewing those technological accomplishments that were made during World War II, sometimes you are amazed.

Briefly about the main thing:
wheelbase: tracked, diamond type
engine type: 2 electric motor or gasoline engine
armor: 5-10 mm, sufficient against most types of small arms and fragmentation weapons
control: wired
ammunition: up to 100kg of explosives
maximum speed: 9.5 km / h
Dimensions: 1.5 x 0.85 x 0.56 m (LHD)
crew: 1 remote operator, 1 remote gunner
resource: 1 explosion (single use as intended), the range is not known
price: 1/12 anti-tank gun
I want to pay attention: the mine is supplied with the real suspension

The petrol engine is connected with a drive with caterpillars and there are differential mechanisms, the mine is quite playful - it drives like people run, suitable for carrying heavy loads.
Such is the microtank during the Second World War.
