WATCH: Marines Test Robotic Vehicle-Mounted Machine Gun

The Marine Corps just wrapped up a round of experiments with new and cutting-edge technology in the California desert, including tests with a gun mounted aboard an unmanned vehicle. This system, the Multi-Utility Tactical Transport Vehicle, or MUTT, from General Dynamics, is designed to take the load off dismounted troops.

According to officials with the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab, the system will allow just one Marine to move a .50-caliber machine gun downrange--a job that typically takes five.

Watch the system in action during testing below.
