    During the upcoming Army-2016 International Military-Technical Forum outside Moscow, Russia will showcase its very latest robotic technology.

    Participants of the Forum will have a unique opportunity to experience an integrated presentation in a dynamic program at the Russian Armed Forces’ Alabino range and Kubunka airfield near Moscow.

    The “dynamic” demonstration will show off military robots, all designed and made in Russia, engaging in demining operations and demonstrating their speed and maneuverability in modern warfare.

    The list of state-of-the-art robotic systems on display will feature, among others, the Nerechta robot system, the Avtorobot unmanned transporter and the Shershen unmanned aerial vehicle.

    Visitors to the static display sector will have a chance to see a prototype of the Kobra-1600 mobile robotic system, which is part of a mobile demining complex adapted for use in cities.

    The Army-2016 military-technical show will run from September 6 through 8 at the Patriot Congress and Exhibition Center of the Defense Ministry’s military-patriotic park in Kubinka.

    Russia is working on robotization of its armed forces to develop combat robots able to act independently on the battlefield,

    The past few years have seen the advent of a number of track-type battle robotic systems armed with machineguns and anti-tank rocket launchers.

    Some of them, such as Platforma-M and Uran, are now being actively tested in the Russian army.
