The future of warfare is robotics. Not the kind we saw in the Terminator. Far from it. The future is what Estonia Robotics and Milrem Robotics have revealed.
The Future Of War
The Type-X RCV is designed to support bigger tanks and infantry vehicles in combat missions. But the Type-X could soon evolve into the main combat machine.
The biggest plus is that the Type-X reduces risk. This can save lives on the battlefield. You can modify the tank-like vehicle by fitting it with a cannon upto 50 mm in length. If you reduce the size of the cannon to 30 mm, the same vehicle becomes air droppable.
Just imagine: Rather than men and women jumping out of a combat aircraft, you will have the mini tanks parachuted behind enemy lines.
New Battle Tech
According to Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics, “The Type-X will provide equal or overmatching firepower and tactical usage to a unit equipped with Infantry Fighting vehicles. It provides means to breach enemy defensive positions with minimal risk for own troops and replacing a lost RCV is purely a logistical nuance.”
The robotic tank promises to usher in a new era of battle technology.
