Just two weeks after it was announced China was developing biologically enhanced super soldiers, France has joined the fray in creating terminator troops that can be “bred to kill” according to a new report.

Last week, France gave the go-ahead for augmented soldiers, and some fear the super troopers could be the new norm in the recent future.

The new species of augmented soldiers, dubbed “homo robocopus” could also have altered DNA to give them enhanced speed and strength as well as robotics.

“We’ve reached the point now where we could potentially manipulate people’s DNA to breed into them extra strength, endurance and other things just as we do with animals,” Clarke said. “Just as we’ve done with standard cattle to give them more back, we can do that now very precisely with humans.”

Here is some of the tech in progress to create “homo robocopus,” according to the Sun.

Brain microchips — France has been given the all-clear to develop microchips to enhance soldier brain power.

Bionic eyes — Being developed in Hong Kong, this gives users infrared and night vision.

Super hearing — The US’s Tactical Communication and Protective System are smart earbuds which boost soldiers’ hearing to be near superhuman.

Health implant — DARPA, the Pentagon’s research arm, is developing cyborg implants to monitor combat efficiency.

Enhanced limbs — A Devcom report revealed plans to equip US soldiers with enhanced limbs for increased strength.

Exoskeletonlegs — The US Army has tested an exoskeleton which can be attached to soldier’s legs and can increase their productivity by up to 27 times.

Synthetic blood — Respirocyte is a theoretical red blood cell that could help soldiers not get out of breath and stay underwater for hours.

Pain immunity — DARPA’s Persistence in Combat initiative would allow soldiers to have their pain suppressed for 30 days.

Hopefully they don't rush out the launch lol.

Well, this is depressing as hell.

Imagine all the good we could do if this tech was directed towards more productive and peaceful ends. But no, first thing we think about is "How could we use it to be better killers?"

Aint more human than figuring out how to be better killers.

Nothing new. Germany tried this during WW2. The entire breeding program implemented to produce the master race. This has been going on for years. I believe we only hear about it in the news after it’s obsolete.

This is one of those things we should all agree not to do, but all of us are going to do it because we are afraid of not doing it when everyone else is totally doing it.

The silver lining though, is this tech will eventually make it's way to the realm of medicine, and be a huge boon for the injured and impaired.

What are the requirements for the Chinese army? Asking for a friend.
