    Not angry, coz world knows it is just a shell. But how good they can imitate the copy is something to be really admirable.

    they're probably just as inaccurate as predator...they kill 1 tango and 25 civilians.

    if you put them on the battlefield, they'll kill 1 enemy troop and 40 PLA troops
