Meet the Wraith: Police Drones coming to the Republican National Convention

The Tampa police department is rolling out sinister looking drones for the upcoming Republican Convention.

The Wraith is a heavily armoured remotely operated ground vehicle developed by United Drones. It can travel at speeds of up to 65mph and climb virtually any terrain. It carries surveillance equipment and can be fitted with shotguns that fire 250 rounds per minute. The Wraith is also capable of deploying smoke in seconds, and can self-destruct remotely.

The Wraith is being deployed along with the Aether Aero, a drone can that can carry surveillance cameras and fly up to 4,000 feet for up to four hours.
