The Russian army plans to adopt the Nerekhta combat robot, said the head of the innovative research department of the Main Directorate for Research and Development (GU NID) of the Ministry of Defense Colonel Oleg Pomazuev.


“It will be applied in the current version. New robots come to the Armed Forces; they perform the tasks of reconnaissance, demining, fire fighting. In the future, in addition to these, the tasks of shock and assault will also be solved, ” Interfax Pomazuev words.

Defense Ministry announced its readiness to adopt the robot "Nerekhta"


He noted that "Nerekhta" and some other combat robots had a good time to show themselves at the tests at the Alabino training ground, during which it became clear that in a number of indicators the robots surpass the inhabited land vehicles in service with the army.

Three modules have been developed for the platform: combat, transport, and artillery reconnaissance. The combat module in various versions is equipped with a 12,7 mm Kord or 7,62 mm machine gun tank machine gun "Kalashnikov" can also be additionally equipped with an automatic grenade launcher AG-30M.

Recall that earlier the Ministry of Defense planned to conduct comparative tests of combat robots "Nerekhta", "Companion" and "Uran-9", the results of which will be decided to adopt them.

    beautiful, i like it. break the fence with an armor and run it into the courtyard of this robot. a one-story house can be smashed to pieces by such an ash-tree without risking personnel. the roof will bounce a couple of times, and then will lie on the floor.

    officers should not risk blocking a house with monkeys. let the operator in the gazelle sitting 200 meters, with a tank on the remote control solve the problem.

    in 98 I thought the army was over. and it’s as it happens.

      These have long been needed in the army. The concept has long been developed. Many models are being developed, promising.
      The main thing in such a remotely controlled mechanism is the noise immunity of control. And it’s just a stump on the battlefield. And they can even intercept control altogether, current AI systems can decrypt the code quickly if it is not executed on special encryption chips.
      By the way, who noticed that in the video Dmitry Fuvaev is a complete double of the Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation Anton Siluanov laughing

    No, just said ...

    So far they will not conduct and compare ... there is nothing to put "+" for one of the parties ... where are the results of tests of other complexes?

    His base is a bit short, and the center of gravity is a bit big, there was a program where such a miracle flipped back and flailed its helpless legs, and the battlefield is full of craters, trenches, and just hills.
    This product can only work in greenhouse conditions, but do we need it?

    It cannot but rejoice that attention has been given to such a technique. But there are too many buts. The current models, despite all the variety (https://geektimes.ru/company/mailru/blog/283942/), can only perform auxiliary functions that are not related to participation in serious hostilities - there’s no survivability for most of them .
    Almost all models are similar to each other, like twins, which is externally, that is functional - why is such a variety of the same thing? They are not any "robots", they are just remotely controlled platforms, moreover, a level that does not meet the expectations of serious "defense" developers.
    There is another factor that is usually omitted in laudatory reporting on the creation of such devices - their cost. And it amounts to hundreds of thousands of y. e. per unit, sufficiently deficient at the moment. And this applies not only to "robots", but also to other innovative electronic-technical devices. Personally, I have a steady feeling that a lot is being developed not for help in the army, but for solving some financial issues ...

    Yes, the base is not long, I agree, but what does it mean "the center of gravity is too big"? Tall or short, did you want to write any of this? So the tank can be turned over with crooked hands. Well, what you are ready to accept means that all tests are completed and it meets the requirements.
