    Talking about Russian walking robot. It would be perfect in Caucasus. Hauling RPO's or AGS/Kord. Not a perfect fighting platform, but it would be efficient mule or a horse as they are even today are used by mountain troops. I can't think of other applications for it as yet, maybe evac, but definitely don't see it carrying assaults.

    I don't know if exoskeletons belong here but I'll put them here anyway for now.

    Well since they are comparing it here with Switchblade, it has to be way smaller than cruise missile. Also it would lose its point if it was based on cruise missile.

    Its probably one of the already existing UAV platforms adapted with warhead. I personally expect it to be one of the ZALA variants as they already mentioned before offering them with warheads for such roles.

    The question is how feasible is this tech? I honestly believe it's too cumbersome to be anything other than a technology demonstrator...however there is a silver lining in this. With the development of photonic technology by KRET, they might be able to shrink the motors down to pocket-watch size (or even smaller), making it much less cumbersome, and much more reasonable/feasible application of the exoskeleton technology.

    I am missing something... What does the photonics have to do with motors? Motors used in the exoskeletons are either servos or stepper motors - where you need to pretty precisely control the movement with a feedback to the control electronics. But the motor controller is not a big thing - compared to the motor....

    do you mean metal buckles for harness to keep exo-skeleton on place? Shocked

    Various types of vehicles have systems that regulate energy usage with the goal of increasing energy efficiency, it's been proven technology in everywhere it's been applied (cars, planes, ect.), digital electronics has since improved on these proven concepts, the only difference will be with an motor as opposed to an engine, whether it's external battery powered or powered via human movement (with energy stored). I already posted links before about how KRET is exploring photonic optical fiber wiring of homes, with the goal of increasing home energy inefficiency to nearly 100%, similarly their will be exponential growth of energy efficiency in server banks (explained in the same articles).

    true but where do you se this big pack of electronics here? the problem with serves depend how much torqe you can generate and eerge needed. Electronics is jest tiny part of weight here?

    I think it's a research tool to study the motion and overall process of aiming a weapon, including target selection. A system like this could be used to program an AI to operate an android like Fyodor though mimicry.

    Correct, in the video, they were showing off how the computer controlled the motion of the arm that held the gun. The feed from the thermal scope was projected into the visor, but that's what it appeared to me to be what was happening. I think the scope was an IWT, judging by their UI language.

    Thats nice and dandy but... as far as i know there are none breakthrough technologies in field of converting electric energy into mechanical one in the near future. You will still need to have motors that use electromagnetism and that causes dissipation of energy into surroundings. The control electronics for the exoskeleton do need to take inputs from many sensors at once and process them but at today technology stage thats not a problem. They dont usually operate those sensors and logic at high amperage or voltages. 5v and couple hundreds of mAmps is the standard so thermal losses are minimal. The most power hungry device on that exoskeleton is the servo and photonics arent going to change that fact.

    Uran-6 packing some serious heat. 30mm GSh-6-30 gatling gun and, by my count, at least 30 rockets/missiles. Damn!!!

    Thats Uran-9. Uran-6 is the mine clearing unit.
