Exercises West-2021


Russia in the exercises "West-2021" staged a war of robots - Russian robots defeated enemy tanks

For the first time, Russia has used a large number of robots in large-scale military exercises.

Unique Russian robotic systems "Uran-6", "Uran-9" and "Nerekhta" were for the first time massively involved in large-scale exercises. As part of the episode of repelling an enemy attack, Russian combat vehicles demonstrated great success, not only providing cover for friendly forces, but also destroying the tanks of the conditional enemy.

"During the main stage of the joint strategic exercise Zapad-2021 in the Nizhny Novgorod region at the Mulino training ground, the reconnaissance and fire support robots Uran-9 and Nerekhta were used for the first time in the combat formations of combined-arms units performing defense training tasks.", - said in the message of the Russian defense department.

It is known that the Uran-6 robots performed tasks related to mine clearance, while the Uran-9 and Nerekhta robots actively attacked enemy forces, providing fire cover for their own and friendly forces.

In the photographs presented, you can see individual episodes of the use of Russian military vehicles. At the same time, according to experts, given that the Russian military first used robotic systems during exercises, in the near future Russia will begin to actively use combat operations in the troops. This will minimize human involvement.

Earlier it became known that Russian designers are engaged in the development of at least three more combat robots of a new type.

And if there is active protection on the tank, then how?
