Military.com article on the US Marine Corps’ use of the robots.

 

 

Sample quote from 2nd Mar Div Gunner CWO5 Joshua Smith :

 

He said the Marine Corps-commissioned study found the targets could increase individual marksmanship effectiveness on a moving target dramatically over the course of just one day.

 

“A Marine went anywhere from a 20-30% hit rate on a moving target to 80-90%,” Smith said. “Imagine, if I can do reps and sets like that all the time, how I could increase lethality at the individual level.”
