If this was turned into a tank.

A few months ago i was watching one of my friends play Metal Gear Solid on the Ps3(don't know which one)  but in it they made bipedal and quadrupedal robots.  Now since this is a video game I didn't really think that Gundam or these machine could be in our near future.  HAHA joke was on me!!!  The same friend later showed me this video of BigDog a quadrupedal robot that is around 3 ft log and stands about 2 ft tall.  It can climb an incline of about 35 degrees and still hold 340 payload.  It even has sensor all over it so that the on board computer can correct its navigation and balance.  After watching this video I just want you to image it being the size of a tank with armor and a turret on its back!!!!!!!!!
