    This is the future or land warfare, its really ashamed that we don't have something similar in the field already. The Uran-9 can engage all sorts of targets, everything from infantry, to jeeps, lightly armored vehicles, and tanks. I wonder how much each one of these costs, I would guess $400,000.

    It would be pretty cool to see the Black Knight unmanned tank in service with the US Army:O---::

    I can't really say how practical it is:confused:.

    Or maybe turn some older APCs into unmanned vehicles? Maybe take a page from ISIS' playbook and turn them into VBIEDs?

    India has turned an APC/IFV into an unmanned system with its Muntra project:

    If they retained the gun, and opted for an autoloader, you'd have a pretty sweet unmanned IFV on your hands:_-0-_:. I dunno, ground systems isn't my game.

    This is more relevant to my job. Missiles anyone?

    M-113's would be perfect for this job. The armor is good enough to keep it protected from most attacks. We have thousands of them to throw away. They should always be sent at the front of a convoy.

    Anyone see DRDO's new Unmanned attack vehicle? Looks like they strapped some folding-fin rockets to a golf cart:p

    But it goes to show that pretty much anything that moves and be automated and armed. Not everything needs an expensive solution, maybe the US military can learn a thing or two?

    They would!!! Russia's "Uranium" robot has an anti-mine (Uranium-6) and fire-fighting (Uranium-14) variant:

    I can't see why surplus M113s can't be converted to fill either role.
