I was approached by certain members of the Indian government in late
2019/early 2020 to develop countermeasures for certain anticipated Chinese
military developments.  (They came to me because of prior work I've done:
this was not directly related to my rocket work, and the contract would not
have been done under CubeCab.)  Then COVID hit, and they were unable to get
funding or time for almost anything else.  My team saw it coming, and urged
them to sign the contract while they were still able to, but they instead
sat around until it was too late.

Note that they are still, today, unable to proceed with development -
because certain folks took the proposal we developed and handed it to
Indian firms, who said they could make it (for much less and/or with
kickbacks) but won't be able to deliver (because the proposal wasn't a
complete blueprint, even if it might look like one to the ill-informed).

I'm sure they'll figure out how to actually make bots without their
internal corruption completely preventing success, some day.  If nothing
else they could just buy them.
