Malcolm O’Neill, the assistant secretary of the US Defence Force’s Acquisition, Logistics and Technology division:

I see in the future a US army with 547,000 active soldiers like we have today and 547,000 ranger buddies – wingmen that would hopefully go into combat with them and hopefully stand in front of them and sacrifice their robotic lives for the human who they’re fighting with.
