Nothing like concept videos!

Where else can you see Russians killing Americans.

Say hello to the future.

The unmanned ground combat vehicle.

The rest of the world is moving in this direction, and we saw some early prototypes from the US and other countries.

Haven't seen really too much from Russia, but I have only recently renewed my interest in current military weapons systems.

Gotta love how easy they make it look.

Watch the video, and enjoy.

I got an RC car for Christmas that can do everything in that concept video except shoot. The Russians have finally mastered 1980s remote control tech! Sorry, I shouldn't pick on Russian military tech. They made some great weapons over the years.

That is pretty cool, but also a pretty basic idea. I know that DARPA was working on a system that could be attached to any vehicle or platform, stationary or moving, and it supposedly can hone in on a target automatically, without having to have a user at the controls. So if one was attached to the top of a humvee, as soon as a shot was fired, the system would return fire immediately. And if instead of a rifle an rpg was fired, or a similar weapon, the system would shoot it down right in front of the vehicle, basically neutralizing the damage. Actually, that latter system already exists, but I think they might be two separate systems...Not sure.

But if you think about it, the military paved the way with drones, and remote controlled, or independent ground units like this are the next logical step. I would be willing to bet that similar concepts have been drawn up by various militaries, especially the US, considering the budget is larger than any other nation in that regard. Because like I said, the idea is rather basic, and has been used in flying vehicles, which would be just as complicated, if not more complicated, to build and test and get working properly.

I was kind of wondering how that vehicle was able to smash trhough a brick wall, although the brick wall in the animation was pretty short, lol. They have sloping armor, which is usually used as a way to deflect incoming anti-tank projectiles. And I am wondering how thich the armor on such a vehcile would be. I mean these vehicles look quite small, since in the animation they showed how they could be attached via trailers and pulled by APC's or tanks or whatever.

LOL well they certainly aren't aiming for realism.

Meanwhile in Soviet technical development facility:

The Bae Systems Black Knight was being tested in 2007.

Don't think it was ever fielded.

It would have saved a lot of lives in Iraq, and would have some use in Afghanistan.

Because that is really what the excuse will be for 'Asymetric Warfare'.



Wouldn't look to the US for anything really the brass is far too much in love with the predator, and reaper air drones.

And we are having cash flow problems.

Right along with budget cuts, and sequestration etc.

And Bae Systems is not an American company they are a multinational who sells to pretty much whoever has got the cash.

I think while this tech is amazing at the end of the day it doesn't mean #, just look at some wars in the past and think did the guys with the best tech win? nope.
Still want one though

I like how they gave them personalities to make them seem friendly lol

Like looking sadly at his friend who got killed by the helicopter and the two that look at each other when they see a tank around the corner haha

I did voice overs for my own amusement, so worth it.

Concept is right. There is no way that those toys would work with the tech Russia has today. The weapons were exposed, there is no way that they could carry that much ammo either. And even with a sensor suite, they could not react as fast as shown.

If this concept were actually taken to reality with what they have, those things would have to be as big as the BTR's that carried them.

But I guess they can dream.

Great video and thanks for posting.... Any attack helicopter pilot who flew as these guys did would deserve to be shot down.. I have no doubt one day in a future (maybe not that far away) stuff like this will be common place.. Maybe war will be so deadly no one will want to fight !

"Gentlemen we are looking for volunteers and I must tell you the chances for success and returning back alive are slight; I cannot tell you the mission details until you volunteer so if you would form two lines..... Volunteers to my right and those who wish to pass to my left".. As one body the company all moved right..
"Well done men, well done"!

Second thought forget it, there will always be those ready to fight for what they believe in.. regardless of the odds..

On remote control tanks... The British Army uses a remote controlled vehicle called Terrier.


The technology used in Terrier is so advanced that the vehicle can be operated by remote control enabling soldiers to clear routes from a safe distance.

The Russian's are playing catch up. The steps the US, the UK and NATO have taken over the last couple of decades have been very big in terms of experience-led innovation and development. No amount of flashy self-promotion videos out of Russia can hide the fact that Western kit is generally far better, tested and evolved.

Yeah it is made by Bae Systems too.

That's a cool 'grown up' toy

Yeah it is.

I thought the tracked GNIUS is cool too.

I don't think so the next arms race will be UGV's.

That will be the next best selling export weapon system across the globe by both east and west.

Here is the Black Knight again.



I wonder what the status of the Black Knight currently is.

I am thinking it got 'terminated'.

Oh ya? Thats cute.

Multi million dollar machines vs 5 dollar 30 year old rpg round. Guess who wins.

Here is the GNIUS again different video with payload systems that have been use, but just on different platforms.

It is a concept video as well.



And here is the avantguard:

Well APS are becoming more and more common place.

That is active protections systems like the Russia Drodz,Trophy systems, and LEDS 150 to name a few.

For example the CV90 Armadillo

wartelegraph.ru...

en.wikipedia.org...

That is of course if someone can get close enough between the hostile fire locators(gun shot location detection systems, GSR ground radar (look at Volvo's new collision, and pedistrian collison warning system to see the full ramifications.

And thermal imaging.

An Rpg maybe can take one out.

Then that is also dependent upon any drones up in the air with ground moving target indication.

Wouldn't mock the systems they are deadly.

And then slap some multispectral camoflauge on it.
