    The thing is certainly funny ... and not a new idea ... how many minutes of life this weapon will have in battle ... I think just enough to pinpoint the coordinates and cover with mortar fire ... the main thing to find out in time.

      As I understand it, the batteries still need to be dragged to the turret or the electric generator, and when precipitation and frost begin, the problems should be fixed, and it will have to be recharged in full growth. In general, such a thing will help in peacetime, to guard the border, no more.

        You can cover everything from art. And a dugout with a machine gunner too. But if the dugout is without a man, then one funeral is less. I think this development, with massive and competent use, has the right to life. As a single craft - of course zero without a wand ...

          How do you imagine an attack? What do you think, how in 1914 the companies run at full height for machine guns?
          Before the attack, the reconnoitered first line is plowed up by artillery, and if a machine gunner, along with machine guns, gets into the dugout and waits for the end of the raid, then he returns and leads fire. And then what - the turret is OBAZANA is in a fighting position always and always be connected and can’t hide anywhere! moreover, any weapon wedges with a certain degree of probability. And who will cure this crap during the battle? Is it right or nobody if it is in an open position or if it is in a closed position - why the hell is it needed if a person is nearby and he can be an ordinary machine gunner?

    I read the description of exactly the same thing in the year 82. Then the Israelis wanted to use their kibbutzim for defense. And since they have not yet been used, it means that nothing will work out for the APU. Americans on wheels did to protect camps in Afghanistan. But they also turned out to be zilch and they switched to minefields.

      That's it. Recently there was a publication about "automatic turrets of stationary security" and about their placement in Russia. But there is at least a concrete base, a constant power supply, and even a lifting mechanism made of concrete caponier! And here - at the frontline such crap will be swept away at times with not even mortars, for this even ATGMs will not be spared. tongue

    And with what fright the remotely controlled machine gun is called an automatic turret?
    Or the possibility of firing "on the move", without the participation of a person, is he still present?
