Submission + - Tale of the Teletank: The Brief Rise and Long fall of Russiaâ(TM)s Military (popsci.com)

malachiorion writes: From Popular Science: "Seventy-four years ago, Russia accomplished what no country had before, or has sinceâ"it sent armed ground robots into battle. These remote-controlled Teletanks took the field during one of WWIIâ(TM)s earliest and most obscure clashes, as Soviet forces pushed into Eastern Finland for roughly three and a half months, from 1939 to 1940." The workings of those Teletanks were cool, though they were useless against Germany, and Russia proceeded to fall behind the developed world in military robotics.
