The Japanese company Suidobashi accepted the challenge of American engineers from Megabots, who offered to arrange a duel of giant robots.
Representatives of Megabots announced the response of the Japanese side on the company's official page on the social network Facebook. Judging by the message, Suidobashi agreed to a duel on condition of hand-to-hand combat between multi-ton robots. “Well, everyone will die someday,” American engineers commented somewhat vaguely on the Japanese decision.
Recall, as Naked Science wrote, at the end of June, the Megabots company from Boston challenged the Japanese Suidobashi Heavy Industries, the creator of the Kuratas robot, by offering to organize a duel between him and the MegaBot Mark-2. The Mark-2 giant combat robot weighs 6 tonnes and is piloted by a two-man team. It is capable of firing paintball-like three-pound cannonballs at speeds up to 161 km / h. Kuratas is lighter - it weighs only 4.5 tons, but it has a pair of Gatling guns in its arsenal and is equipped with an advanced spatial orientation system with a HUD display.
The location of the duel has not yet been determined, the details of the future duel in Megabots promised to be announced later, after negotiations with the Japanese side.
