Just wondering the application for something like this, that drone must be super power hungry so it can at most go a few km forwards, well within SHORAD range , it makes no sense to transport the robot dog on top towards a forward operating position as it'll be much easier to just drive it up using trucks which can carry much more.The robot dog again from Kestrel Defense. Two ways of deploying/transporting the robot dog. For direct deployment to battlefield, the dog can be dropped off by a drone as an underslung payload (images 1 and 2). For non-battle field deployment, it can simply be transported atop a drone (images 3, 4, and 5).
Due to the nature of drones the uptop arrangement will also alert everyone within a kilometre of your exact position due to the noise. The only viable method for battlefield use would be underslung for rapid deployment, with the drone acting as signal repeater for long ranged control.
I can see the allure of using drones to drop the robot dog on rooftops of skyscrapers in cities as part of a breach and clear team, but I really think they should focus on more practical weapons for CQC usage on the robodogs before designing the transport options, seems like this company is very experienced in drone design, but quite limited for weapons.
