A 2003 story on the Gladiator writes:
The 4-foot-tall, 1,600-pound concept vehicle recently was demonstrated at Camp Smith, launching dozens of smoke rounds downrange that could have been tear gas, or stingball and flashbang grenades.
Cued by an operator walking behind a rifle squad of Marine police, the Gladiator also fired paintball rounds with pinpoint accuracy, and blank rounds rattled from a swiveling M240G medium machine gun.
With a variety of cameras on board, the Gladiator can see in the dark, and through smoke.
The little armored vehicle also is being designed to perform surveillance, obstacle breaching, and nuclear, biological and chemical reconnaissance.
You can see that one of these has tracks and the other has wheels. I don’t know if they’ve decided which to go with.
