Comic Book Resources has an article featuring Red 5’s upcoming title Drone:
Though there are several models of drones, Chitwood said the U.S.A. is the undisputed superpower in robot warfare in this miniseries. “In this story the United States has essentially won the ‘Space Race’ of drone development. They are the first that have ones that could actually work well in battle. In issue #2 we’re introduced to the Gun Hounds. These robots are essentially the Big Dog robot with a large gun on its back. The thing is scary and hilarious at the same time and I could really see these things on a battlefield one day – but the Gun Hounds are actually a failed iteration of the development process. China and Russia are in catch-up mode. And since we always hear stories about Chinese spies sending secrets back overseas, that’s a major factor here. Why spend years in development when you can simply steal a working design? So that’s at the center of the conflict in this story. The Chinese are helping local rebels capture a group of drones so they can pull one apart and figure out how the critical components tick. That being said, the grand finale does feature US drones battling captured drones in a knock-down drag-out fight.”
