Default Robot Cheetahs

Our government is funding the development of robot cheetahs. So far their cheetah can only go 18 mph. A real cheetah can run at 70.

Excellent use of tax revenues. You should be proud.

The average Olympic Sprinter can make maybe 23-24mph. This won't get tired.

Imagine a fully-sorted one of these running through a building, complete with razor-edged claws and "teeth", or equipped with a small-caliber gatling, killing anything bipedal that moves....

Pfft. One good shot from a phase-plasma rifle in the 40-watt range and that toaster is ghosted.
