Skynet Kills First Hominid Parasite, Entire Infestation Scheduled Next

If you were visiting Vault-Co you'd have known about this coming development back in 2003.

It's just too easy to kill with robots. Human soldiers are messy and organic in comparison. They have needs and hard-to-manage requirements that can be difficult to qualify.

Machines need regular scheduled maintenance, oil, fuel, electricity, parts. They can sit anywhere big enough to hold them on a shelf until they are needed. They can kill thousands for cents on the dollar or even millions. No whining, no suicides, no desertion. No Veteran Hospitals. They can be cannibalized for parts when they are finished. Humans can't compete.
