The great powers – the US and Russia – have started new arms race, both trying to present each other most advanced defense equipment and new military technologies, Stern magazine wrote.
As Russia demonstrated its new Armata T-14 battle tank during the Victory Day Parade, the US took every effort to prove that it is keeping up with the time as well.
Americans released pictures showing a new next generation remote-controlled tank. As in Russia, it is not a full-blown battle tank and not a real armored personnel carrier, but a comparatively compact tracked vehicle.
The idea behind the project is clear: the drone tank should fight the enemy without putting own soldiers at risk. A similar project was already introduced by Russia a year before.
The MRK-002-BG-57, nicknamed Wolf 2, makes a significant step towards the creation of a fully automated robot tank. Its electronics should be able to detect and target up to ten objects at the same time, the article said.
