I see much less casualties caused by room breaches then "wars breaking out". You know how delicate, and slow, room clearing operations are? Using a robot, used as a tank to deploy secondaries and or randomized frontal fire, to make the initial entry makes the "element of surprise" (loud or silent - whatever you want to take that element as), would easily clear a room of known hostiles without causing a single causality on your side. The accuracy in deploying more effective secondaries would be unbelievable. Hostage situations would cause mass psychological chaos in the foes eyes, with distortion, delusional, and mass disruption. Those couple seconds have thousands of variables to calculate, in which resort to thousands of possible problems. Send in a robot, fires in a known direction of no hostage or a known hostile, sets off concussion grenades with laser precision, draws the fire of the foes, and the remaining squad members walk in and clear the targets and easily put the hostages in better chances of a safer extraction. It would literally leave the foe with a
look on their face when one of these things walks in and sets off a bunch of tear gas/flash bangs.
And the situations where these things would show their benefits don't end there. It's great for the urban environment. Likewise, you could imagine the use in the other fields as well.
