Killer robots from China

Please discuss

"CHINA is aggressively unleashing lethal fully autonomous drones that can carry out targeted military strikes, a think tank has warned.

The killer drones and pilotless aircraft fitted with AK-47 rifles are being exported to Asia, Africa and combat zones in the Middle East."

I wonder how they keep them from killing their own guys? Or maybe they don't care? As long as they kill equally effectively? Maybe you only deploy them in areas where your people ain't? They shoot at anything that moves inside a set of coordinates?
I wonder if they can it "Puff the Magic Dragonfly"?

What makes me wonder is its said to be armed with an AK 47 which would put it close to the ground to be able to hit anything. Either it flies fast or has armour.

if it flies fast, nets could probably be deployed to snag them.

High powered targeting lasers could be placed around any perimeter. Or perhaps even crew or vehicle deployed.

And if all that fails, you hand out a few of these to those enlisted country boys.

Something isn't right. Chinese machines aren't very reliable. Chinese programming isn't very good. The Ak is overly heavy for its chambering and magazine fed. The 7.62x39 wouldn't be a very good round for this application..

A human flying a drone fixes an awful lot of programing complexity. The programing would need to be so complex it would be indistinguishable from AI.
This would make the drone a huge target just for its AI capability.
