Program the hoarder drones using AI to focus on a specific class of equipment or on high-value personnel. Example - disable or steal as much of their communications networking gear as we can find - homing in on the electromagnetic signature of their antennas, perhaps. Or recognize and kidnap their high-ranking decision-makers or operational planners when they become exposed and vulnerable to such an operation, similar to a special operations "snatch" mission using robotics.

What makes this idea new or different?

Available in different sizes and capacities, this drone can liberate ammunition, fuel, rations, or personal weapons from the enemy 24/7 and bring it to our supply depot. Large sizes can capture personnel and vehicles.

What will be the implications of this idea?

This would add material to our effort and deplete the enemy's supply while being a harassing entity.

Just as high-value terrorists now fear drone strikes, in future we might employ robotics and AI to capture high value targets and bring them back for interrogation without risking human lives of our highly-trained soldiers in extreme high-risk environments.

This solution is overly constrained. Stealing stuff is great, but taking it all the way back to friendly lines is hard work. It would be easier for the drone to break stuff or adulterate fuel supplies. We need a set of sabotage drones. The enemy would lose a lot more stuff.

It would make it easier to defeat the foe. After they are all dead, we can just drive up and take the stuff, all of the stuff.
