Comment Straight line vs crooked path killing (Score 1) 983

A bullet also kills remotely, it just gets transported over an almost straight line and hits where it can be seen directly by the shooter. A killer robot moves around obstacles and the operator can see via a camera. However, a missile, grenade or mortar travels in an arc and explodes where it cannot be seen at all. So, using remote vehicles to deliver a killing blow isn't really a new idea.
