Abstract
This paper describes the use of static remote-controlled weapons as an ambush tool that allows guerrilla/terrorist forces to more accurately inflict casualties and damage with less personal risk than a car bomb. This is possible due to the inexpensive and ubiquitous technology that exists in today’s society worldwide. This paper provides a different perspective about what will appear on the battlefield in asymmetrical threat environments and why.
