The Russian army will be able to solve combat tasks with the help of kamikaze robots in the near future. As it comes from the name of the machine, the robots will be used to act as potential suicide bombers on a battlefield.
A video from a range ground shows two full-tracked unmanned military machines shooting targets from CORD machine guns, and an automatic grenade launcher. The footage also shows the machines accompanying the infantry and armoured vehicles.
The kamikaze robot known as "Nerekhta" can move at a speed of 30 kilometres per hour for a distance of up to 40 kilometres. The machine is compact in size and highly maneuverable. The machine travels with minimal noise and can detect an enemy from a distance of three kilometres. The machine has already been dubbed as a "universal soldier."
"Nerekhta" robots can take part in hostilities, evacuate the wounded, deliver ammunition, conduct reconnaissance and give target designations to artillery. In addition, the robot can perform functions of a self-destructing kamikaze machine.
Representatives of the Israeli Defence Ministry responded to recent reports about the possible delivery of S-300 SAM systems from Russia to Syria. Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that Israel would destroy those systems
Russia is to start supplying S-300 air defence systems to Syria in the near future. The shipments will be conducted free of charge
