    Still, we got all those robots tried and tested, some put officially into service.
    That new robot is lighter than most of these, sure, but from the rest we saw
    nothing or maybe one single unit moving around behind the front.

    https://rostec.ru/news/robot-saper-shmel-poluchil-novyy-tral-dlya-effektivnoy-borby-s-lepestkami/

    The High-Precision Complexes Holding of Rostec State Corporation has modernized the remotely controlled MGR-4 Shmel humanitarian demining vehicle. The sapper robot was equipped with a new improved compact trawl, which simplifies the transportation of the vehicle and allows for more effective neutralization of anti-personnel mines, including small-sized "Petals".

    The new trawl has a reduced size and weight, which makes it possible to transport a robotic vehicle in the back of a conventional truck in a fully assembled form. It is also equipped with additional minesweeping elements - firing pins, which do not give even the smallest anti-personnel mines a chance to "hide".

    Such equipment is especially in demand in new regions, where the enemy is using inconspicuous PFM-1 Lepestok mines against the civilian population and intensive humanitarian demining work is underway. The updated Shmel is being demonstrated for the first time at the High-Precision Complexes exposition at the Expotechnostrazh exhibition.

    "Bumblebee" is a modern system with remote control. Robotization of the machine makes it possible to eliminate direct human participation in hazardous processes, minimizes the risk for sappers and increases the speed of demining. The new mine sweeper is capable of clearing a wide range of anti-personnel mines, including small-sized pressure mines. The main purpose of this equipment is to help quickly establish a peaceful life in new Russian regions," said Bekkhan Ozdoev, Industrial Director of the Armament Complex of Rostec State Corporation.

    The humanitarian demining vehicle was developed on the basis of the Ant-1000 mini-loader by the enterprises of High-Precision Complexes - the Kovrov Electromechanical Plant and the All-Russian Research Institute Signal. Earlier, Rostec showed tests of the demining complex in the NashCrash project.

    The Expotechnostrazh exhibition takes place from 3 to 5 April 2024 in St. Petersburg. The event brings together leading Russian manufacturers and specialists in the field of security.

    They have a lot of interesting designs with rifle calibre machine guns and heavy machine guns, but I think the de-mining drones are going to be very very important too.

    Of those pics Hole posted above the first picture is interesting because the height of the turret would give the gun a good field of fire and good observation while the troops can keep low and avoid enemy fire while still moving forward.

    The second pic with the two drones is interesting... the vehicle on the left has a 7.62x54mmR four barrel gatling gun... that is real fire power... this is what it looks like when fired:

    It use electric movement only or mixed it with gas use?

    I believe it is one of their very few guns that are electrically powered.

    Most of the rest AFAIK is all gas driven... presumably with compressed gas starters.

    AFAIK the only standard uses for these light guns is in the nose of a Ka-29 troop landing helicopter and in the gun pods their helicopters sometimes carry with one 12.7mm four barrel gatling (from the Hind) and two of these rifle calibre gatlings on either side.

    Great for long range hosing of large areas of ground with lots and lots of bullets very very quickly.

    Would obliterate a target at close range.

    I think THOSE kind of robotized vehicles, Yogether with logistical ones are BY FAR the most useful ones. Not URAN-9 or other armed gadgets.

    Som far drones/robots form both sides are hardly autonomous. Usually machine controlled directly by human. But with current pace of AI devlopment it wont be long to have new autonomous robots im afraid ...


    BTW I wondered why Russians didn't use YakB 12.7 mm gun... It might be an interesting suppression fire weapon.

    There was a video with lots of robots including the datasheet shown on post 631 above and I noticed a few including the one shown in post 631 above were blurred.

    It looked like a machine gun... perhaps it is a weapon they are not ready to reveal yet?

    Looks like a mine clearing vehicle

    It has a mine clearing system on it but I suspect it might be a drone you can send up to an enemy position like a trench or perhaps even a building that can drive up and launch this mine clearing munition... they fired them at trench lines dug in small forested areas and they seemed to be rather effective.

    I think THOSE kind of robotized vehicles, Yogether with logistical ones are BY FAR the most useful ones. Not URAN-9 or other armed gadgets.

    They could be multipurpose too... that drone with the mine clearing system on top could be sent to the front line where an enemy trench is causing problems... it could creep up close to the trench line and then launch that tube of explosive and detonate it and then as it is heading back it could take any injured soldiers back with it. It could also bring forward other ammo like hand grenades and ammo too.


    BTW I wondered why Russians didn't use YakB 12.7 mm gun... It might be an interesting suppression fire weapon.

    I suspect the distances they could see at night and all weathers that the rifle calibre machine gun was more cost effective and more stable when firing. The rifle calibre ammo would be plentiful and the drone could carry rather more than it could carry heavier ammo.

    The larger calibre gun is also heavier and the ammo would be heavier too.

    Short bursts would deliver a swarm of rounds around the point of aim which should assure a hit because they would impact all around the point of aim so no dodge could safe you.

    Many of the drones are telecontrolled devices rather than robots, but I would say most can be given a line of advance and to detect a highlight the targets it detects for the operator to decide if opening fire is the solution.

    This would allow it to also take prisoners.

    I wonder if the "Stalker" chassis can be used for a combat model.

    It can roll over you.  Very Happy
    But seriously...
    The thing weighs some 27 tons or so.
    The chassis should be able to carry some heavy stuff.
