MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. In a forthcoming exercise Russia’s strategic nuclear force will start field-testing a mobile robot designed to guard and defend strategic missile facilities, the Defense Ministry’s press-service said.
"What makes the exercise due soon in Russia’s eastern-most division of the strategic missile force so special is the use of the most complex robots for resistance to groups of saboteurs. The exercise will help evaluate the capabilities of the robot system’s fire module to track down and monitor drones," the Defense Ministry said.
The robot is meant "for conducting field reconnaissance, for identification and elimination of stationary and mobile targets, for providing fire support for military units, and for patrolling and protecting of sensitive facilities in combination with automated security systems."
The cutting-edge technology will make it possible to conduct combat operations at night while remaining "disclosure-proof."
The system is capable of eliminating targets in the automatic and semi-automatic mode. It is equipped with optical electronic and radar reconnaissance stations. It boasts such a feature as "differentiated armor protection of the chassis and the combat platform."
Earlier, the Defense Ministry said that participating in the exercise will be the Irkutsk missile unit armed with ground-launched Topol missiles. A total of 4,000 military personnel and about 400 pieces of military equipment will take part.
