This Vehicle Can Launch 12 Suicide Drones

The Beijing Civil-Military Integration Expo 2019 on Tuesday has witnessed perhaps one of the most thrilling military inventions ever made — an armored military vehicle. Disappointed? You won’t be. This vehicle can unleash 12 suicide drones that can be used for reconnaissance and for wreaking havoc.

The 5.7 meter-long, 2.4 meter-wide 4x4 off-road vehicle was developed by Beijing Zhongzi Yanjing Auto Co Ltd. It has a max speed of 125kmph and can adapt to the various demands of highly mobile troops. The vehicle can operate in difficult terrains including jungles and mountains, Global Times reported Tuesday.
The wheeled vehicle uses what the company calls "missile-vehicle integrated technology." It carries 12 pneumatic launch tubes that fire drones into the air, which then spread their wings and become operationally controllable.
These launch tubes are usually hidden within the vehicle and are only revealed upon use. This provides an element of surprise as enemies will have difficulty distinguishing drone launching vehicles from standard ones, an employee of the company said.

To be honest, I wouldn’t call this amazing. I would call this scary. What are your thoughts on this one?
