If it's designed for the military it will be EMP hardened. On top of that it will probably have a certain amount of cpu/memory power along with programing that would allow it to operate independently of the operator for a short period of time. I mean our tanks and recon vehicles etc are built to handle NBC ( nuclear/Biological/Chemical).
Something that's always surprised me is that airplanes/helicopters aren't at least EMP hardened, civilian airplanes and helicopters that is. At least the last time I checked.

That's not cyberpunk, that's just sad.Hundreds of Haitian children are taking refuge at a prestigious high school in Port-au-Prince after escaping gang violence in the town of Cite Soleil that killed some 400 people and destroyed hundreds of homes this month.www.reuters.com
True, but again, what do you think happens in cyberpunk worlds?!?I was more referring to the fact that the kids are having to stay in a school to escape it.
But Chessbots are another thing entirely.
I concur. About the only genre that's more depressing the cyberpunk might be "true crime", PA and horror...
These people have too much time on their hands. Giving snakes legs.
