I say other.

For landmines, booby traps, trip wire weapons and traps, IEDs, etc. etc., I have no issues, unsporting does not matter.

Since I already have an issue with using piloted drones, I have to include the soon to be functional autonomous drones in the mix being asked about, and like the use of piloted drones, I am against their deployment, sporting or not.

POLL DESCRIPTION
Writing in Proceedings magazine, Dave Majumbar notes:
...any time new weapon technology emerges, there is opposition from those who believe that the technology fundamentally unbalances war...
Would autonomous weapon systems be unfair or unsporting?
