19
The Russian Ministry of Defense announced the video of the field tests of the Sotovnik robotic complex. The novelty of the domestic MIC is multifunctional and is intended for reconnaissance, demining and patrolling the terrain.


The mass of the machine is 7 tons, the maximum speed of movement 40 km / h. The radius of action with direct visibility - 10 km.

"Companion" has a full armored body that can withstand fire from small weapons caliber to 7,62 mm. The complex can be equipped with replaceable combat modules, which include 7,62 and 12,7-mm machine guns, several types of grenade launchers and Kornet anti-tank missiles. It is also possible to install anti-aircraft missiles and 30-mm rapid-fire gun.

Unique is that the "Companion" is able to work independently in conjunction with drones ZALA, production of "Kalashnikov".

    Serious device. Also, the complex is faced with such tasks as the delivery of ammunition, fuel and lubricants, evacuation of the wounded and clearing the area. In passive mode, the robot can work up to ten days. He can find targets at a distance of up to 2500 meters.

      Serious device.

      in fact, it’s just a toy, the existing equipment will do better in the field, you’ll bring it to the suburbs, especially under enemy fire, and in the city it is generally useless, because it can’t work inside buildings (too big), it doesn’t have a gun for working outside buildings (120mm +).

      Quote: Spartanez300
      like the delivery of ammunition, fuel,

      It does not transport much, and delivery by robots is only necessary when ours are surrounded in the city, and there are few such cases, very few, and they are solved by other methods.

      evacuation of the wounded

      How will the robot provide first aid? how will the robot load the wounded? In any case, a person will have to go, but he needs normal armor.

      mine clearance.

      He is generally unsuitable for this, the chassis is not suitable.

        The purpose of this "comrade-in-arms," ​​the reconnaissance suicide, is not suitable for other purposes (in terms of configuration and composition) .. The product is clearly raw. Weight under 7 tons, - bust for such a wimp all over. Booking and an open sluggish canopy and other works show more on “cut to order” ... When this miracle starts to crumble from 23 mm and higher and RPGs, etc., what will remain of it in the first minutes of exposure .- (23 mm zushka from "jihad of mobiles", and other BMP calibres) ...- a bunch of stationary scrap metal with pieces of shot thin tracks. Perhaps a three-axle wheeled chassis and a weight of up to 3 tons, towed trailers: for ammunition, for high-powered landmines, etc.) are preferable. A lot of things can and should be desired for the "newborn" ....

      Some household antennas ... and if a bullet hits ... what will happen? what A tall machine ... will be easily visible on the battlefield.
      In general, only in real combat conditions can this miracle be appreciated.

        This is from the computer game "Red Alert", a great strategy. By the way, in it our land units were noticeably superior to the NATO ones, and the extremely curious systems attributed to us extremely curious.

        this is done specifically for sale to other countries, more precisely for an additional increase in export sales.

    Cool thing! But instead of this body kit for the operator, you need to work on a normal portable control complex, 3D glasses instead of a monitor and not two huge joysticks, but something more compact.

      But for now, raw ... the main enemy of such systems, whether it’s Companion, the Platform is a sniper with armor-piercing bullets ...
      At the same time, the theme of Uranus-9 has faded away ... and I think that the Companion is just the reincarnation of Uranus for the army, although Uranus has a mass of 10 tons, and Companion 7 ...

    Outwardly, it’s not very impressive yet. TTX not indicated. Reservation is weak: the frontal projection must be protected from 12,7 mm, at least. I would like to know what was used in Syria and with what efficiency.

    There are two antennas and you still have to get on them. And the height is not so great, almost like that of the operator. If there the trunk can lean low, then it will be possible to peek out altogether because of the terrain, if there is still good stabilization and accuracy, then in the hands of a cyber-athlete it will be a terrible weapon.

    Interestingly, and designers have ever come across something like "Shroud." I remember that when the convoy with them drove about a hundred meters from us, any connection ceased. This is the first thing that immediately comes to mind. Well, with the second thought that appears to me with, at the very least, the experience of 3 wars, his role is generally incomprehensible. And therefore, all these developments are seen as toys for boys with general epaulettes. In addition, an expensive toy and requiring qualified service. Moreover, each such unit will need a platform for transportation and a tractor, but we cannot provide such luxury for tanks.
    But we need waxing robots for mine clearance. Then there will not be the fastest sapper sprinters "one foot here - the other there." And just tractors with a bulldozer blade and a bucket are sorely lacking in each regiment. Clean snow on the territory, dig out the toilet ...

    Yes, I also think that it's damp. You need to make a real tank a robot and learn to control it, at least for 15-20 kilometers, and put in it a program of independent behavior, in case of loss of control. Then you can get real returns.

    And this "dragonfly", firstly, has weak weapons, well, what is 7,62 mm. machine gun? Now it’s not the 20s of the past century. Secondly, with such armor it will be easy prey on the modern battlefield, and its driving characteristics probably leave much to be desired.

    If this is just a model for working out some kind of system, then another thing.
