Just trip it with wire as the Ewoks did in Star Wars. Easy!

I suspect they have at least blueprints for add-on weapons ready. I wouldn't be surprised if the chinese army would already have that kind of equipment hidden somewhere, they like tech. I mean, weren't they the first to make fully automated laser weapons that shoot down drones with insane accuracy?

Why pay for all that research if you never intend to use it as a weapon? If you really think about it, all missiles/rocket/torpedoes/etc are the equivalent of a vehicle driven by a computer instead of a person which destroys itself when it reaches it's target, and not that different that the suicide/kamikaze planes used by armies that have the resources to make 'smart' bombs.

Many machines are built to do the dirty work that is either too dangerous and/or to costly to do by human beings. Wars just happen to be one of those areas where automation can reduce the costs (as well as casualty rate) when deployed successfully. Who wants to spend several million dollars on the cost of training a soldier, sending them overseas, and then paying millions of dollars in medical and disability cost when something like a $50K-$500K machine could be used instead. Why do you think drones and similar devices are constantly being used more and more by the military?
