Developed during the height of WW2, the Government Robot series defined the European battle lines for years.
The Experimental Autonomous unit was developed in 1976, due to an increased risk of Communist computer viruses infecting the ranks of the U.S. military robotics division.
Developed near the end of the Cold War, the XA-82 marks the beginning of America's reliance on fully autonomous robotic warriors that would completely replace the ranks of its' citizens.
The XA-82 boasted technology that is the standard for today's GR units, but was considered quite exotic at the time.
Rudimentary cloaking abilities enabled the XA-82 to slip behind enemies without being seen or detected even in infra-red.
