US intends to create unmanned armored vehicles

33
The US Army does not want to risk its soldiers. According to the portal defence-blog.com, the US military command has initiated the RCV program, within which remotely controlled combat vehicles will be created.


The US Department of Defense said it wants to get armored vehicles that will match the Stryker armored personnel carrier in speed and maneuverability. At the same time, the combat capabilities of a ground combat drone must comply tank Abrams. In the arsenal of the American army already has a similar weapon - Stryker M1128 MGS.

US intends to create unmanned armored vehicles


The American command believes that remotely controlled vehicles must go ahead of the technology that is controlled by people - such a solution will provide full reconnaissance in force, minimizing the loss of personnel. At the same time, the crews of combat vehicles going behind will control the uninhabited equipment.

The US Department of Defense intends to create a limited number of machines that will be used as an experimental technique. The first fully combat-ready prototypes of unmanned armored vehicles should appear by the 2022 year, and in the future it is planned to use the obtained developments in the development of the NGCV program - Next-Generation Combat Vehicle (“Next-generation Combat Machine”), reports "Warspot"

          and so everything is true, the direction of development of weapons is the same for all world powers

    I would write like that. The American army cannot educate normal soldiers; therefore, it wants to transfer to an unmanned system.

                You are not asking the right question. Why do we need a 30mm gun on a small machine, when the same gun is on the BMP \ BTR \ MRAP that deliver infantry? here are a few limitations:
                1) "without infantry, nowhere" only a person can clean up the territory only a person can check every corner to make sure that "there is no enemy"
                2) "transport is needed" the infantry is moving slowly therefore it needs transport both for long-range deployments (scuffing, and wheeled armored personnel carriers) and for short-range ones under possible enemy fire (armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles are especially tracked)
                3) "need fire support" the first and second can’t destroy the enemy’s fortified positions, therefore, tanks and self-propelled guns are needed.
                And so a lot of people "A" offer us to introduce the fourth paragraph "4) robotic systems of the company-battalion level" which are NOT able to perform tasks 1-3. So for what tasks do you need point 4?
                Do you propose introducing point 4 for transporting a 30mm gun? - this makes no sense because it already exists in paragraph 2, it is still desirable to put on paragraph 3, that is, entering paragraph 4 will not increase firepower.
                Do you propose to hide point 2 in the rear, and forward point 4, in order to save the crews? - this makes no sense, because then point one will move longer from a safe position to an enemy position, therefore losses will increase.
                Do you propose to hide point 3 in the rear, and forward point 4 in order to save the crews? - this makes no sense because paragraph 4 does not have powerful weapons.
                So what are these wedges for?

                  You think so because Uranus-9 is improperly designed. It had to be done like a real small tank - with a tight layout and the maximum possible - based on size and weight - armor and weapons. On a wedge of similar weight, a 57 mm gun will be great.

                    A typical logic error. Yes, and the inattention of reading my post. Read my post thoughtfully and carefully, especially the text where point 2 is mentioned.

                    It is designed correctly. It is incorrectly analyzed. More precisely, an analysis of this class of equipment was not carried out at all, or else this analysis was carried out but the most severe errors were made in it, which served as an order for R&D on uranium-9.

            Just like drones. It seems to me very much that no one will fantasize strongly about the remote control system specifically for armored vehicles in the United States. Modify the existing one according to necessity.
            Decryption of digital coded communication systems in our country and not in our country is quite successfully involved. Miracles have already happened when drones, according to their desire, landed in the inspected territories and right in the hands of the inspected (2011 Iranian military experts intercepting the RQ-170 UAV). Current is useless from him.
            And if we don’t take control, we will endure control using the electronic warfare system.
            So we will intercept just like “Donald Cook” scared

                Glad for your peace of mind. All the same, I hope that we will not see examples from practice. Unless, of course, the United States decides that peace must come to an end. Then "war will show." In this case, at least you will know the culprit of the "triumph". Don’t be too lazy then, admit out loud that a certain MVG was right.

    remotely controlled cars must go ahead of technology, which is controlled by people - such a solution will provide full intelligence reconnaissance, minimizing personnel losses. At the same time, they will control uninhabited equipment crews of military vehicles going behind.


    And what will prevent the enemy army from calculating vehicles with pilots and destroying them?
    In the 30s in the USSR created a whole gallery of remote-controlled tanks. We started with the T-18 and finished on the BT. There was even a tele-breakthrough project based on the T-35.
    The Germans used remotely controlled wedges throughout the war.

    Everyone ran into the same problem: in terms of price / combat effectiveness, the teletanks in the trash were inferior to the conventional manned ones. In other words, they were too expensive.

    Well, remembering how much money the United States military-industrial complex has been eating up on its new crafts in recent years, I think that after spending another $ 500 million, the project will be closed.


    Our combat "robots" are still not for the first line of attack.

    Russia in this direction should be 50 years ahead of them.
    And so that our technology does not kill and cripple or harm the health of innocent, innocent people.

    This is not a joke to you. We all know how Americans fight on the territory of scorched earth. Only then do they launch soldiers, learn that no one will give them back, will not cause harm.
    And so, they will let a million of these tanks without a twinge of conscience. And they do not care how many innocent and peaceful people die.
