Russia began export promotion of sapper robot "Uran-6"

RIA News quotes Valery Varlamov:
As for the "Uranium-6", today a passport of export appearance has been formed. We are already starting to prepare the ground so that our foreign partners would be willing to cooperate with us in this area.

In addition, there is a conversation that in the near future not only the sapper version of the robot, but also its fighting and fire-fighting modules can be exported.

For your information:
The mass of the Uran-6 robot sapper is about 6 tons, the speed is up to 15 km / h. 4 video cameras are installed onboard the equipment, which allow to conduct a circular view of the demining site. For greater efficiency, the Uran-6 uses attachment kits, including trawls and dumps of various types. The robot is intended both for complete demining of a terrain site, and for making safe passages on anti-tank and anti-personnel minefields.

    Instead of guys with probes, let the tractor work - it is iron. And the soldiers will be alive.

      I just think the export combat version is definitely not necessary!

    The robot-sapper "Uran-6" machine, of course, standing. She showed herself in Palmyra. Surely there potential "clients" examined his work from all sides. Children's lives are worth more than a pile of iron.
    But as I understand it, its use is limited by the presence of territory, or rather, the area on which it can maneuver. In any case, the sapper, in places of dense development, let's say, while there is nothing to replace.

      It would be nice to teach a mannequin to act with his hands, it’s a pity that this is still a distant future ...
