Unique Russian infantry robot passes the latest tests

Next year, tests of the Marker robotic combat platform will be completed. Despite the fact that during the Syrian conflict, Russia already managed to break in the platforms of the Uranus, Argo, Sphere, Avatar, Nerekhta and Platform-M series, the new infantry robot will become unique in a kind, as it will be able to combine the capabilities of all the above devices.

So, the promising Marker is a flexible, stable platform of high operational reliability, which can simultaneously use two types of weapons and one type of additional equipment. The nomenclature of weapons for the future "infantry assistant" includes a 12,7-mm machine gun, automatic grenade launcher, launchers of various types of missiles, including anti-tank ones. As the aforementioned addition, the robot can receive electronic warfare equipment, guidance stations, electronic and optical reconnaissance equipment, or even a launch cartridge for barrage of ammunition and drones.

In general, taking into account the task assigned to the troops, the innovative platform can have up to 20 configuration options, and can also be used as a light vehicle for overcoming anti-personnel minefields.

However, this is not the main advantage of the Russian development. Unlike most of the similar platforms controlled remotely, the Marker is a full-fledged robot. So, the device forms in memory a map of the adjacent space with a radius of 100 meters and is able to continue the task even in the absence of communication with the operator.

In addition, the structural features of the chassis of the platform allow the domestic combat robot to conduct aimed fire even in the process of movement, which no modern Russian or foreign counterparts can boast of.

    That is, this is already the 7th platform, "which has no analogue in the world." Excellent!
    Is there even one type in the troops?
    And what kind of transport is issued for their transportation is interesting. The resource will not allow you to go somewhere on your own .....

      There is)). The same Uranians entered the engineering troops. How many pieces? Well, here who says what. From 60 - up to 1200 pcs. (Well, it would be strange for us to know). Not "having analogues". Well, I personally do not know more "robots" adopted in service in other countries. Although this is still not "Robots". Since my robot vacuum cleaner performs more functions without intervention.

        This is good news.
        And what should they transport, not in the know? Ordinary trucks?

          It was shown on Zvezda that they were being transported in converted Typhoons. But something I personally doubt. That these trucks are in the army. Most likely, on ordinary "trawls", like tanks. There is a video on YouTube where they were uploaded from the usual "MAN".

    It’s good that such development is underway.
  3. Cool car! It would be nice to run it in Syria and Libya!
