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.
