Military Review

In Ukraine, they talked about the RSVK-M "Okhotnik" ground drone, which took part in the hostilities in the Donbas

35

RSVK-M "Hunter" from KB Robotics is one of the few Ukrainian ground-based drones used in real combat. It has been successfully tested for several years in units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine participating in military operations against the republics of Donbass.


The journalists of the Ukrainian edition of Defense Express talked with the representative of the manufacturer of this equipment Ivan Kirichenko, who spoke about the development, the experience of its application and its prospects.

He said that he initially created a stationary shooting complex, which was successfully tested in Donbass in 2016. But its mass, which is 120 kg, makes it difficult to deliver it to the "zero" zone and does not allow to quickly change positions. Therefore, they decided to create a mobile ground platform for him.

It turned out that this platform is more effective as a transporter and tow truck. Then, in the fall of 2016, the shooting complex was removed from it and transferred to one of the brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, participating in the so-called "Operation of the Joint Forces", that is, in the war against Donbas. There, this technique was used in the delivery of goods to remote locations. In this regard, the name "Hunter" clearly does not correspond to the purpose of this platform.



This experience became the basis for the creation of a modern version of this machine - RSVK-M. This 600 kg platform has a 6x6 wheel arrangement with DC motors with a total power of 6 kW. One battery charge is enough to run up to 10 kilometers on difficult terrain. On a good road, the drone's range is much greater. Its ground speed is up to 10 km / h.

In the fertile Donbass chernozems, covered with tall grass and dead wood, RSVK-M, which is 70 cm high, is said to be "completely invisible."



In 2018, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has already announced how many such complexes it needs, but it is not possible to close this need, since the manufacturer is not ready to launch mass production due to lack of funds. KB Robotics does not receive any financial investment from the state, therefore it has to make do with its own resources and voluntary donations.

    Robots appeared in Ukraine?
    So everything is going according to plan ...
    According to Hollywood's plan
    Meanwhile, on the horizon, there was a grandiose cinematic joy.

    The action movie "Outside the Wire" ("Death Zone") was released in the USA. Events unfold on the territory of Ukraine in 2036. The Ukrainian state does not exist, nor does the government. There is a civil war between the “pro-Russian rebels” of the battalion commander Viktor Koval - the so-called “Reds” - and the Ukrainian nationalist “militias” (yes, the translation sounds very ironic).

    A "dirty" nuclear bomb was detonated in Kiev, local residents vegetate in post-apocalyptic ruins and cholera-infected refugee camps - but they speak good, correct Ukrainian. And the walls of the barracks are covered with the inscriptions “Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the heroes! Ukraine is a mustache! Crimea, Ukraine!".

    American troops are watching carefully to ensure that all this continues indefinitely. They sit behind a fortified perimeter and kill people with drones, cynically calling civilian deaths "collateral damage."

    “How does it feel to see the results of your work? The local people were not orphaned by the civil war. Their homes have destroyed your bombs ... The United States wants to destabilize Russia by prolonging the conflict in our country, ”says the leader of the Ukrainian patriots, who began to understand something after more than twenty years of war, to the American drone operator.

    However, this even robots understand. Combat robotics of Russian and American production is actively used in the conflict, but the Pentagon secretly uses in it a prototype android - a perfect killer with a phenomenally developed intellect. The android realizes that the US is the cause of the war and decides to eliminate it. I must destroy the monster - myself, and I must destroy my creator. America ... she must understand that wars must end. And I am the face of an endless war, ”says the combat android, about to launch old Soviet nuclear missiles at Washington.

    To this end, he forges ties with Koval, who is leaving Moscow's subordination - and at the same time negotiating with Ukrainian nationalist militants. “Americans will understand what collateral damage is,” says the Ukrainian patriot ironically.

    Of course, the Ukrainian viewers are already hysterical, and the reviewers are demanding to ban the enemy cinema. Some call it "leftist propaganda." We won’t be surprised if in 2036 this film is considered a prophetic film classic.

        The Negro, in the second photo, is obviously the original inhabitant of Kiev?

    A sensible machine for positional confrontation. It is not positioned as a super duper unparalleled. BUT is able to save the lives and health of the fighters.
    By the way, the power of the army is formed from such bricks.

            Quite! The order will be riveted. It's just a highly specialized platform. And massively it is not needed. But if you can cut the money, then they will completely build it.

      I would like to hope that this is such a banter ...
      If the power of the army consists of a six-wheeled piece of iron, which you can buy on Ali, if you wish, then it’s scary to think what the “whole multi-storey building” of army power looks like ...
      Although, let it be the personal experiences of the Minister of Defense of the most independent country in the world

        Until the age of 41, the Red Army used to laugh like this about Deutsche inflatable boats and outboard long motors for them! As experience has shown, they easily seized bridges and bridgeheads with such inflatable ones.
        And yes! This is the cube that saved the lives of the landing party. For fast assembly and fast crossing of the advanced subdivision!
        You can keep laughing!

          There is no need to draw parallels between the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Red Army, this is not historical, compare with the Armed Forces of the UPR or ZUNR.

      This is what I see as an application of this, if I may say "drone", that it is in the delivery of logs, boxes, and other building materials and weights to the position.
      There he can still demonstrate something as a "mule", everything else, the painted "combat use" is complete nonsense and nonsense from ukropaganda, which should show at least something "breakthrough" to the Svidomites ...

    Judging by the lack of data on the protection of the case, in case of detection it will not last long. Will be disabled by small arms.

    Some kind of a small power reserve of the Ukrainian chariot.

    Russian developers have tested the Marker universal platform for combat robots in a fully autonomous mode. During the tests, the platform covered 30 kilometers along the snow-covered forest steppe, according to the Advanced Research Foundation. The tests were carried out in the Chelyabinsk region and were considered successful.
