The Americans will conduct a full test of combat robots

Today various types of unmanned and remote-controlled vehicles successfully used by armed forces around the world. While we are talking about reconnaissance planes and drones-drones. But the emergence of more advanced types of military equipment — it's only a matter of time. The "debut" of such military vehicles in the army could take place very soon, because in a year the United States plans to conduct the first full-scale test of combat robots. And this is only the beginning.

What are the combat robots the us army

At the moment there are a lot of developments in this area, but if we talk about field trials, then in may 2020, the U.S. army will conduct military exercises using a tracked platform Bradley in the modification of MET-D (Mission Enabler Technologies-Demonstrators), equipped with machine guns 7.62 and controlled remotely. In the first phase of testing will involve two combat vehicles that will have to keep suppressing fire for training purposes and to coordinate with each other. Each platform has two operators to control and monitor the situation. Military exercises in the first phase will last 1 month.

What next?

This, as you know, testing combat robots will not end, and every year the number and type of military equipment will change. So, by the end of 2021 the number of platforms Bradley in the modification of MET-D is expected to reach 6 copies that will work in conjunction with 8 light and medium robots.

Next, the third test phase, in 2023 the number of units of military equipment will remain the same, but she will belong to the heavy class combat vehicles (what is to be samples, the U.S. Department of defense is not currently specified).

Why do we need military robots

The Main purpose of the upcoming tests — to understand how successfully are remotely capable of performing combat tasks. As a result of tests the military will be able to understand the weaknesses of such war machines and decide in which direction to develop robotic systems.

In addition, one cannot deny the fact that have many advantages. First, they allow not to risk staff, saving the lives of soldiers. Second, in the absence of the crew, roughly speaking, "freed a lot of space inside", which increases the amount of payload that can carry military equipment. This can be used for, for example, increase the ammunition.
