Drone on robot combat

Recently Russian combat robotic platforms with AGS-17 automatic grenade launchers were seen on the Avdiivka front and then promply destroyed via FPS drone after becoming inmobile/inoperable:https://twitter.com/bayraktar_1love/status/1774059714051018923
How effective do you think ground based robot combat platforms are in the face of the emergence of FPV drone tech?

      That's because you have only seen them improvised by poor nations.
      They will get a lot better and giving a platoon the ability to setup MGs without worrying about them getting cut off offers a lot of options.

              NTA, and checked.

              A pretty obvious one was the MRAP, which was part of an urgent operational needs statement, or UONS. It was not a program of record and had no standard spec or maintenance schedule, and depending on if you got one from GDLS or Osh Kosh you might have totally different power plants. Just an example. As you say, we don't rush too many things.

                MRAPs where rushed, at least in the design phase. That doesn't mean your unit got them fast but by modern procurement standards it was quick.

                You can sort of understand though that the Americans needed a PMV real quick though, a lot of guys were still rolling around in Hummers with hillbilly armour and hoping to god there wasn't a mine or IED anywhere. Even despite being a rush-job, it had been in some kind of prototype and development for 3 years prior to its introduction and used a lot of off the shelf important bits that just had to be integrated into the chassis one way or another.
                I ended up in a Bushmaster for a while as my new thing, but even it had been in production for nearly ten years by the time it ever arrived.

            Yeah, R&D is a fickle thing that needs a lot of focus on what's practical and useful first before even bothering with prototypes or god help your third world, busted arsehole industrial sector can theoretically even consider producing for something not approaching a solid gold plated rolls royce.
            That's sort of were the T-14 came unstuck.
            I've heard anecdotally they spent $300billion on that thing, no one wanted it for export and the local Russians didn't want it either because it was incredibly expensive. The F-35, the gloriously fricking crazy expensive piece of madness it is, that cost quite a bit to develop- but they did load-share so to speak by getting friendly allied countries to chip in on the costs and components to spread it around. Then once it was all done and dusted, the price would be reasonable enough to buy.

            So thats a pretty great lesson in terms of everyone getting something through a little bit of co-operation during the most difficult stages of development.
            Same with things like the Loyal Wingman program, that shits expensive enough that they won't really want to fund it in the US budget fully, but places like Boeing Australia will carry a lot of the cost and also find a use for the systems under development.

              I get your point with the T-14 / F-35 but Russia isn't in the geopolitical position to do that because the nations that buy Russian are poor.
              They can't have expensive high tech kit if they plan to export, they need to learn from the other extreme of US exports and shit out the F-16 forever.

                Staying in your lane for the Low-Mid tier arms industry stuff is sort of a double edged sword.
                You always have the poors who are going to need to run over people in a T-72, but if they can get away with doing it in a cheaper T-55 they're not adverse to doing that either! But its really knobbed the local MIC to the point none of them make any money, its a hard sell pumping out parts and spares for old planes and shitboxes when the market is still pretty competitive out there with a lot of other places that will probably sell you something a bit better for avoiding the hassle of low-end, old shitboxes needing endless fixing.
                China, France, UK and a few others will be in the same market and none of them are exactly terrible at weapons design and production if the US isn't your friend enough to sling you some mil-surp

                Therein lies the problem, when you aim high, it costs high and your traditional customers are priced out for the most part, if you sell directly into Russia from the local production, they just can't make any money on these things. They end up selling them for less than it costs to make and will never recoup the dev-costs.
                But you kinda... kinda can't say no to these people because bad things happen

                I think Russia painted themselves into a corner over the last 30 decades.
                They don't have poor customers because their stuff is cheap, they have poor customers because everyone with money sees them constantly threatening the west and doesn't want to end up having to sanction the nation that makes all their spare parts and ammo.
                They could produce something as good as the F-35 and half the price tomorrow and still not get sales because they keep threatening NATO memebers so no NATO member is going to buy it.

                If they actually want to have a decent MIC they need to learn from France and Germany.
                >don't threaten potential customers
                >don't threaten allies of potential customers
                >don't steal aircraft from 3rd party nations when you start a war
                Putin did a great job of starting to unfrick Russia in the 90s and by the 00s it was looking like they could be just another nation rather than a potential enemy.
                Then he has to start annexing everyone that wasn't in NATO and people got worried. Now he's started the biggest European war since WW2 and no one is going to trust Russia until all current senior politicians / military leaders are replaced.

                But yeah, no one wants to jump through the hoops of bullshit of buying things from Russia, apart from it being kind of nasty at the low end, sometimes it just doesn't turn up!
                Like early in the war when Kherson was being pressured, they found about 30 T-90M's that were going to India and they just didn't make it because essentially they just fired them over and hi-ho away we fricking go boys!
                There's no ammo
                Like if you want Soviet era ammo or god help you, something like an S300 missile, any of their AA-missiles: Its just nope, none, nada nothing for sale
                Same with parts, none of that and I think most people learned their lesson from the now infamous support and spares for Mig-29's that you'd have to be barking insane to ever buy big ticket items to defend you country with. Like Malaysia used to fire 1-2 of theirs up once a year for operational practice with other nations, but they were at best door stops for the other 364 days

                I don't see any further development or sales for them again for a very long time. They shut down the stock market so no one can invest and that just sort of means they're stuck on the financial island of Russia that if they have to. They will roll up with trucks, men in balaclavas and convince you succinctly to give them that stuff in your inventory

                India should be feeling very worried about critical military assets being on paper only at this point.
                I know their base reliance and imports of systems from Russia has started shrinking pretty rapidly and they'll be scurrying around trying to get anything they can. Problem with India was they always tried to ride both sides of the fence to the point there wasn't much western weapons because of the ties to Russia, then they're making bank on cheap oil which may at some point get turned off in the future if they don't want to play with sanctions. They're in a good position and ties to break with Russia, they want western investment then they'll need to play by western rules and friends.

      >More expensive
      Look at this way. The government approaches working-age citizen, "Citizen, we must draft you for the great conflict. You can either report in person, or contribute enough industrial output to produce a requisite battle strength of combat machinery." Which do you think most people would prefer? How many battle-bots could an army of millions produce if it meant not having to be Mobik'd themselves? The big issue is how much this stuff is tech-gated, which makes it very difficult to scale.
