Russia develops 7-ton armored robotic military platform

3 posts in this topic

MOSCOW, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Russia's engineers are developing a 7-ton universal armored crawling robotic system due to be tested by the end of 2015.

It will be capable of being used in all kinds of "human-unfriendly" environments, which include battlefield and nuclear fallout places, as well as extreme polar night Arctic conditions and mine sweeping areas.

Called the URP-01G, the device contains dimensions of about 3.5 meters long and less than 2 meters wide, reported Russia Today. The robot will carry up to two tons of hardware with a maximum speed of 40 kilometers an hour.

"The URP-01G robotic platform is a universal armored vehicle designed to work in locations that represent a serious threat to people's lives. It can be used during military action, reconnaissance, emergency situations, rescue operations and demining," said United Instrument-Making Corporation Deputy CEO Sergey Skokov, as reported by Sputnik News in May.
