ROBOT BATTLESHIP US Navy to build £330m world's largest robot warship...

The huge ships referred to as Large Unmanned Surface Vehicle (LUSV) would function as scouts for the main battle fleet, carrying radar and sonar as well as anti-air and cruise missiles.

Proponents of the ships see the role of the vessels as carrying out "3D work" – dull, dirty and dangerous.

A Draft Request for Proposal, posted on the FedBizOpps website, said: "The LUSV will be a high-endurance, reconfigurable ship able to accommodate various payloads for unmanned missions to augment the Navy's manned surface force.

"With a large payload capacity, the LUSV will be designed to conduct a variety of warfare operations independently or in conjunction with manned surface combatants.
