Russia's Lethal New Robotic Tanks Are Going Global

Russia is developing a compact robotic tank that it hopes to sell on the international market. But while Moscow is hoping to export the unmanned combat vehicles, it’s not clear if Russia’s own military forces will adopt the new weapons.

Called the Uran-9, the robotic armored vehicle is not intended to replace main battle tanks such as the T-90 or T-14 Armata. Rather, the diminutive machine is designed to provide fire support to special operations forces and to conduct reconnaissance.
