POLITICS:

THE MULTI KILL VEHICLE (MKV-L) - LOCKHEED FINALLY PRESENTS THE FLYING KILLER ROBOT

Yes, it does sound like "Terminator", but it's real!

Check out the hover test in the video. It's pretty frightening.

Terminator-like Killer Robot Unveiled by U.S Government:"Lockheed is the world's #1 military contractor, and responsible for the U-2 and SR-71 spy planes, the F-16, the F/A-22 fighter jet, and Javelin missiles.

In the event of an enemy missile launch, a carrier vehicle would be fired into space to unleash hordes of weapons, which would then lock on to their targets and destroy them.

Specifically, the plan is to mount one or more MKVs onto carrier missiles, which would launch into space to engage enemy nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles at the apogees (or peaks), of their trajectory arcs, the Pentagon said.

The MKVs would then break off from the carrier vehicles and shoot at enemy warheads with big bullets, "kinetic interceptors" in military-speak, before dropping back down to Earth.

The weapon is the latest addition to the US's controversial missile defense shield, formerly referred to as "Star Wars" when first announced by the Reagan administration in the 1980s at the height of the Cold War.

The US Missile Defense Agency said that rival defense contractor Raytheon, is also working on its own multiple kill vehicle program."
