Defense company Milrem out of Estonia has developed a new robot called THeMIS, an acronym for Tracked Hybrid Modular Infantry System.

At six-and-a-half feet wide, about three feet tall, and capable of hitting 20 miles per hour, the completely autonomous THeMIS robot could be a major force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

The THeMIS robot is tank-like, can carry a machine gun to aid in a firefight while also having the capability of acting as a medevac.

Production is expected to begin sometime in 2017 according to Milrem, citing that all the testing on the THeMIS robot has already been completed.
