First Robot on Robot Combat Kill

Here is another "It was bound to happen sooner or later" From Gizmodo the first combat related autonomous machine kill of another robotic device. A week ago in Iraq, a MQ-9 Reaper killed a remote controlled vehicle carrying a bomb. The MQ-9 destroyed a RC car using a laser-guided 500-pound GBU-12 bomb in southeast Iraq. It was the first recorded incident where the UAV searched for, found, fixed, targeted and destroyed another autonomous/robotic threat.
