The Russian army began rearmament to combat robots

Despite the constant improvement of weapons, today it is still not capable of maximizing the protection of soldiers on the battlefield. Armored personnel carriers and various armored vehicles do not have a sufficient level of "survivability", and even the richest armies of the world cannot afford to "hide" all the infantrymen in tanks.

However, progress does not stand still, and some states are already experimenting with might and main with the creation and use of autonomous robotic systems, in terms of their combat power capable of replacing a full-fledged mechanized company. Russia is not lagging behind the "trend" either.

Our country already possesses several complexes of different classes: "Platform-M" and "Nerekhta" weighing up to a ton, "Companion" weighing 7 tons and, finally, a 15-ton remote-controlled heavy-class vehicle "Vikhr", created on the basis of BMP- 3.

However, as field tests have shown, the most successful option is the Uranus intermediate class program, aimed at shaping the appearance of a flexible and inexpensive multifunctional platform that makes it relatively easy to assemble the final specialized versions on its basis.

Until 2019, the only practical result of the program was the Uran-6 remote mine clearance vehicle, adopted by the engineering troops and tested in Syria.

Later, a robotic platform for escorting the Uranus-9 infantry was presented, the initial version of which was also tested in Syria. Today, the domestic combat robot is equipped with a 30-mm automatic cannon, 4 “Attack” missiles and six-barreled launchers of “Shmel-M” flamethrowers. This complex is capable of destroying any armored vehicles at a distance of up to 5 km, as well as solving reconnaissance tasks, opening the operation of enemy laser guidance systems and setting up a smoke screen.

The Russian troops have already begun to form an experienced unit armed with the aforementioned robotic complex. According to the current plan, after the "running-in" of the combat vehicle and training of personnel, the delivery of "Uran-9" to combat units will begin.

    We are all rearming ourselves with the latest weapons, which are nowhere in the world, and that we are the second army in the world in terms of the power of our armed forces, and they continue to humiliate us, kick and dragons every day, and wipe our feet on us, bring down all our de- -Mo on us, even the same Balts, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Romania, etc., etc., etc., and after that you feel that you live in some kind of defenseless banana republic, and not in huge Russia at 17 million square kilometers.
    1. and you cry, Valya - it, you know, will become easier,

    I don’t remember the name and the author - in my distant childhood I read an entertaining fantastic story about the confrontation between two powers on different continents. The hostilities were fought everywhere in the world and to control them in one country they came up with the idea of ​​inviting a guy who was cool in military strategies on a computer. They gave him a toy and said - play! Well, he uses all available means against his virtual adversary. And then oppa - it turns out from the other side the same advanced pimpled pepper drives with tank wedges and vigorous bombs, and all the mess happens not in a computer toy, but in reality ...
    Why am I - it's time for WOT War Thunder veterans and others to register as a draft reserve for operators of combat robots. Here our shkolota uncles from any of the Ministry of Defense online will go to waste, and everyone will be happy.
