‘Black Knight Transformer’ drone takes first flight (VIDEO)

Advanced Tactics’s “Black Knight Transformer,” a multipurpose drone that can be used to evacuate wounded troops, made its first flight recently.

The Black Knight Transformer may look like a Go-Go-Gadget boxcar on wheels, but the autonomous machine is only in the first stages of development.

Guns.com previously reported that the U.S. military hopes to use the Transformer to fill the need of a “Multi-Mission Medical and Casualty Evacuation Unmanned Air Vehicle/Unmanned Ground Vehicle.”

In other words, not only can this unique drone evac the wounded, it can also resupply those that are still fighting on the ground.
