Armored BMP – 3 has been already robotic Russian army. The heavy tank T-14 should be in turn a “robotic” update.

In addition to these robots, the Russian army wants to robotize in order some of its current armor. Thus, the video features a BMP-3, a vehicle of infantry shielded nearly 19 tons which could be engaged without crew. The ambition of Moscow does not stop there since it is the brand new heavy T-14 “Armata” char which might have to turn to a dronisee version. No picture of this tank in the presented video, but a few tracks on that prepare the Russians. They want that a tank can remotely control a second. A radio link broadband should enable the human crew to access all sensors of the autonomous tank.

Besides these battle bots, the video shows a drone armed quadcopter to a grenade launcher to fire on targets with multiple robots of small sizes that complement this arsenal. Uninhibited and free of any ideological debate on the use of robots in the army, Putin’s Russia world shows its ambitions in this area, whether destined for the jihadists, the Ukrainians and the major powers.
