Status Report: Russia needs you!
the company Uralvagonzavod has claimed that it would make the T-90 "Vladimir" tank remotely controllable from distances of 3 to 5 km in the nearest future.
T-90 is the previous model produced by this company who has switched to a more modern production, the Armata. Variants of the "Vladimir" are still being offered and experimental remotely operated machines are being developed.
Yesterday, Deputy PM Dmitry Rogozin who has voiced his preferences over remotely operated technologies has wrote on twitter:
"We need no tankers now, we need World of Tanks players"
He also believes that “bespectacled nerds” would completely destroy the forces of “handsome athletes who fight on a lower technological level.
What is you opinion on unmanned tanks?
