    Awesome.... did it give a designation?

    I have designations for Armata and Kurganets and Boomerang, but not for Typhoon or the DT snow/mud two chassis vehicles.

    Armata vehicles all have T designations and Kurganets has a B designation and Boomerang has a K designation for its vehicles.

    Seems confusing till you realise T is for tank based, B is for BMP based and K is what they are using because BTR would mean another B I guess, but probably means light wheeled vehicle family.

    At the end soldiers on foot survive much more than vehicles or soldier in vehicles. Even more if they know 1 thing or 2 about cammo and how to move without being hidden.

    The interesting point there is that traditionally infantry on foot numbers in the hundreds of thousands and when spread out is a rather difficult target to take out effectively.... especially if they have body armour and helmets and are lying down finding cover. A huge bomb tends to not be as effective as thousands of small bombs spread out over a large area.

    If you have a bolt action rifle with a 5 shot magazine and you are on a forest edge near an open field and 1,000 zombies start staggering towards you... only an idiot would start shooting because 995 zombies will get you if you wait to fire off 5 shots.

    Numbers matter and when you are charging a line and the defenders start firing and you see their shots you can fire back at them before they get too many of your guys and overwhelm the line. Not clever or classy but it gets the job done if you massively outnumber the enemy.

    In fact an Orc tactic was the send in the untrained conscripts first and then use snipers to pick off the Russians shooting them... you lose a few waves of men but then your experienced soldiers now see where the enemy are firing from and can suppress that fire when they attack so by the time they attack the Russians have to fall back.

    Of course the Russians weren't stupid enough to try to stay and hold ground against such overwhelming numbers so they fell back and let the enemy take their positions and then had their artillery shell them and then come back and push them back again with the Orcs taking massive losses in the process.

    All the prepared Russian positions they just took all facing the wrong way to defend against the counter attack, and perhaps even a few concealed claymore type mines hidden in the strongpoints the enemy will likely occupy immediately but wont have time to fully search...

    So numbers is a thing and that applies to drones as well as individual vehicles like four wheel motorbikes.

    When it comes to drones using AI to identify and locate targets means one person can launch some high flying drones with high quality cameras, both day and night cameras and they can fly above small arms fire altitudes looking for enemy concentrations and then you can send smaller AI controlled attack drones to attack enemy individually... with AI control they will do it all automatically so you don't need thousands and thousands of drone operators on the front line manually flying each of these drones.

    Drone attacks with AI allow you to attack the enemy in thousands of places at once without needing thousands of drone controllers.

    They already have navigation systems and can identify basic equipment like tanks and artillery and air defence vehicles, and automatically engage them without needing a human to monitor everything.

    You could also have enemy troops surrender to AI controlled drones...

    Interesting concept.

    did it give a designation?
    As far as I know the designation currently is DT-BTR Arktika (because it was developed for the troops in the High North).
