Pentagon's 1969 Quadruped Hotrod
A bit of random war nerd porn from my Surveillance Valley archive research. This one comes courtesy of a taxpayer funded military rag called "Army Research & Development." It shows a rare specimen: a 1969 vintage Pentagon Quadruped Hotrod. Kinda looks like Google's Cheetah Drone, which as it happens was developed with Pentagon funding but is now controlled by Google.
Interesting side note: a few years later, in the mid-70s, Army R&D would be renamed Army RD&A — the "a" is for acquisition. Not surprisingly, the mag slowly morphed from just a straight up info bulletin on army research into a kind of "Men's Health" for military procurement nerds — a sales catalogue with fancy full color covers and picture spreads that drummed up fears of Soviet military might and showcased overpriced (and mostly useless and rarely used) military toys.
