Yes, nothing says "family fun" more than a killer robot firing blanks at the crowd. smile

I like the Logitech gamepad controller...

I could probably control that thing way more accurately with keyboard/mouse but then again Im an old fart who will never understand how the kids use those console controller thingys these days. My thumbs alone have never been very accurate at anything really. smile

As far as we can tell, Putin does not fire blanks unlike some President.

Irrelevant of the crowd control application, the blanks and the controller, as a former armored recon guy I would have loved to have had one of those in my scout section. Save a LOT of lives and expensive equipment.

There seems to be a rolling track record of the Russian military being unsafe to the point of looking like a gang of drunk tards. Firing "blanks" at random people lovingly continues that stereotype.

If yes, the Russian miltiary staff would be as dumb or corrupted as the French one, for obvious reasons, putting aside the financial ripoff and the tax evasion

I think it's refreshing to see a modern society not driven by lawyers.

It's just like the RWR in BF4.

I have the Logitec gamepad but bought an Xbox360 (wired and black) gamepad for Windows and it is better.

Unfortunately in this case it shows itself to be highly unhinged and incompetent.
