The single pilot robot has a top speed of 6 miles per hour, and can be operate via 3G networks. Perhaps the most best feature is that their weaponry fires when the pilot smiles – referred to as “The Smile Shot”.

America has called out Japan and has demanded a robot duel!

America presents the Mark II: America’s first fully functional giant piloted robot. Not only have they made space for another pilot, in typical American fashion, they’ve added really, and we mean really, big guns. This 12,000-pound beast of gasoline powered fury can fire three pound cannonballs at over 100 miles an hour.

Japan has a message for America – we accept your challenge!

But on one condition: that melee combat be a part of the fight.

Japan is claiming that giant robots are a part of Japanese culture, and they will stop at nothing to retain this title. No country will take this away from them, so they have accepted the duel and have threatened to punch the Mark II to scrap.
