    You mean "The most stupid race and people in the world, right?"
    Think about it. Developed countries like Japan, US, German, British have very smart people whereas South Korea, undeveloped country, wants to appeal or impress development countries so South Korea did something smart countries never did and wanted to boast "Korea is number one! Our technology will help Japan" meaning "Our Korean technology is higher than Japan". Lmao! There is no place such a huge hunk of robot can enter any building in the world! Lmao!
    But all the countries are developing robots for the war that don't use humans anymore. Only South Korea is going to use Human lives to sacrifice for Wars. Lmao!
    I am sure, genetically Koreans are demanders and claimers. They will soon accuse South Korea , "Why only South Korea has to sacrifice human lives while all the rest of the world don't!?" Lmao!
    Even for ecomonic use, robots are designed to be used without humans (Artificial Ingelligence). Only South Korea is using human brain. Lmao!
    It is a time to know all Koreans are stupid being unable to get Nobel Prize winner which even Taiwan got. Lmao!

    Place armour in the body, replace that glass with Transparent Aluminium, put one minigun (can be .308 or .50 cal) and a 20mm grenade launcher in each arm, and maybe a Javelin launcher on the back and you can get, maybe the best combat vehicle for urban warfare. Urban environment are a nightmare for tanks, once their long cannon keeps it from maneuvering in confined spaces. A mech would have no problem to move through confined space and even through debris. In other words: "Small" Bipedal Mechs can reach in some places most armoured vehicles can't. The only effective weapons infantry would have against it would be launcher and anti-tank rifles, but only in stealth attacks, to not be shredded by it's minigun. However outside Urban and Jungle areas it would be vulnerable to tanks, so a Javelin on it's back, pointing up would be essential to defend against it, once going face-to-face against a tank or even a AFV would be suicide.
