    It's about an order of magnitude more difficult to create than an FPV and there aren't any off the shelf good solutions for it unlike FPV's.

    I find them frighting. The advent of an autonomous UGV carrying some sort of indirect fire munition that is reasonably stealthy would be terrifying. Especially if those munitions had some autonomous loitering capability.
    The stuff of my actual nightmares.

            I mean we all saw what those Israeli drone launched loitering munitions did to the poor Armenians. It made me feel really bad for them. Imagine there are like 30 of them in a UGV parked 3 km away.
            The future of war is gay.

    I still don't think they're quite ready or cost effective enough for proper frontline fighting. I think in the near term, the UGVs we'll be seeing will be taking up rear line duties such as AA defense or long range fires in order to reduce the need for manned crews for these roles. Western AA systems for the most part are already automated and simply need human authorization to fire, and current tube and artillery fire is basically just plugging values into the FCS.

      I it's possible we'll be seeing command vehicles with semi-autonomous drones with remote override functions in the near futures.
      A bunch of dudes in a Heavy APC with a bunch of antennas and sensors and a remote weapons station piloting their complement of drone tanks.

      Besides that it could probably help infantry squads to have one of those smaller all-terrain vehicles to haul all their gear.

          FPV drones are a fricking meme. Guided missiles are way better and everyone needs to get it through their skull that FPOV drones are improvised shitty weapons whose killing power is disproportionally displayed in propaganda by either side.
          >The range claims are ludicrous
          >The warheads they carry are lackluster
          >The reliability is dodgy at best, especially if EW gets involved
          >Emissions must be through the roof making you easy to triangulate
          >You'd be better off using a low-observable recon drone with laser designation to guide (guided) artillery on target from said Heavy APC
          By the way, having a bunch of drone tanks zooming around near the heavy APC firing autocannons or cannons on targets is way cooler; obviously that is way better.

            They are responsible for 80% of casualties in the war, as it currently stands. They have also been pushed into becoming autonomous.

              Yes, because the weapons soldiers would prefer like artillery have been used up; not because FPVs are so based.

    They will be amazing for FOB defense, instead of having all your guns inside the base you can hide them on hills around it and have 24/7 overwatch without some poor bastards needing to live outside the wire.
    As for offensive use I could see them being great at the platoon level as rapidly redeployable HMG / GMG teams that you don't really care if they get cut off.

    I think they look cool as frick but in practice there is a limited utility beyond maybe defending set perimeters or checkpoint duty.
    Maybe that's exactly what they can be good for though, however most of the talk I see has them maneuvering with heavy armor which just seems idk it's a big task for a pretty immature technology.

      In a role like this they are perfectly suited, they are close to the relay/control point, and can be used to screen the advance of the larger (nominally) manned tanks. These could draw fire to allow for easy spotting via quad copter recon. A role like this is unironically one of the best things ground drones can do, save lives and money on repairs and/or recovery or wrecked vehicles. The problem of lag would be negated by the control vehicle being in the combat formation, if not a bit behind it for protection.

        Another extremely useful role would be for carrying loitering munitions and/or mini suicide drones. This would allow for the users of the vehicle to minimize risk from the UGV getting blown up in a fiery inferno by being in a completely separate control vehicle a short (or even medium-long) distance away. With mini-suicide drones it could be a very effective solution to urban/suburban combat, with human operators being concealed in strong points behind or along the front.

    very good. The first step is carry loads for infantry.

    >those wheels
    The fact it has alloy rally wheels looks rad.

    I personally prefer this thing though, it looks spartan as frick and very simple to produce, looks kinda like a 4 wheeler with a flat top.

    Challenge: The cheapest, lightest quad bike with gun+camera you can come up with. Light enough that the pressure from a single wheel won't detonate some shitty soviet AT mine so it can go places armored vehicles can't. Could it be done?

    War should evolve to UGV's vs UGV's while it is soldiers job to provided support and aid for the civillian population and maintain and transport the UGV's.

    There is no need to risk any humans anymore.

        There are medieval flying drones developments and pretty sure on modern contested battlefield it's the best way to evacuate casualties.

    Russia hasn't been able to actually produce any of these concepts, but western companies have. I did always think the quadrotors were goofy and sub-optimal, but bots are being used in this war. Autocannon armed robo golf carts and quadrotor bombs. Maybe he wasn't as batshit crazy as everyone thought.

    I'm honestly surprised they're not more common. Personally, I think they're going to be used as cannon fodder since you can slap a lot of armor on one and you don't need to write a letter when the enemy nails one with an ATGM.

      It's because you have to produce them yourself instead of buy them en-masse online
