Willing to bet that once this gets deployed it'll be called "LaSSSie"... 99.255.13.52 (talk) 06:48, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

No, it's not a hoax.[edit]

Someone put a "hoax" tag on the article. It's not. It's a real DARPA Department of Defense project. Here are all the official procurement documents, from DARPA's Tactical Technology Office[1]. DARPA and the USMC really are building legged military robots. It's not even a research project any more, as Big Dog was; it's been moved to DARPA's development and preproduction section to be turned into fieldable hardware. --John Nagle (talk) 18:26, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Article in NY Times, 22 Sep 2013[edit]

For those interested, the New York Times had an article today concerning military robots, and the Legged Squad Support robot was prominently featured. There are a few pictures as well. The article is here [2] 50.88.101.34 (talk) 18:42, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 12:02, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 21:44, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
