The V-RAMBO. The Ferret does not enjoy popularising tools of death, but this is really beyond. A wrist mounted LCD monitor named after some sly bandana-clad dork – aka the Video Receiver And Monitor for Battlefield Operations – which lets the poor sap infantryman watch
South Park battlefield conditions prior to rushing out and shooting at something. If we spent as much time and money on making happy gingerbread bunnies….
The exceptionally small and compact unit receives and displays real-time video images captured by a UAV or other airborne, surface or ground platforms – directly on the device´s LCD display. It thus provides vital tactical information and supports cooperation with other forces in the area. What’s more, while reading vital data, the soldier’s hands are free to fire weapons, dramatically shortening response time and assuring accurate action. The unit’s miniature receiver, battery and antenna are carried in the soldier´s jacket pouch.
