MOSCOW, May 18. /TASS/. The multi-functional combat robots of the Uran family have been armed with the remote-controlled weapon systems Ataka, a source in the defence-industrial complex has told TASS.
According to earlier reports, the Uran robots underwent successful testing at a proving ground in Novorossiysk, including live gun and machine-gun firing tests and launches of guided anti-tank missiles. Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu watched the trials.
Later, a source in the defence industry told TASS that future robots might be equipped with electric transmission.
The Ataka system is meant for destroying tanks and other armour and small size targets, fortifications, manpower and air targets flying at low altitudes at a speed of up to 400 kilometers per hour. Also, Ataka can be used for small tonnage surface targets. The system is capable of operating in day and night-time conditions.
Ataka is installed inside the turrets and combat compartments of various combat vehicles and also on naval ships.
