Needs a quad javelin/HVM launcher and you have your close overwatch capability. Control from Ares (maybe carry on back davit) and fit with a networked RWS. It might be possible to control more than 1 per vehicle as well.

Looks good, following the US approach of developing autonomy for 'logistics'.

Surprised (and a little disappointed) the daily mail haven't caught on with any terminator headlines yet....
