The Estonian company Milirem Robotics presented for testing a medium-class robotic combat vehicle Type-X, designed for reconnaissance and fire support of mechanized units (tanks, armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles) and convoys.
The Type-X is designed in a modular fashion on an autonomous rubber tracked platform, on which you can install various types of weapons and devices, depending on the mission being performed. The main idea of the developers is to create a combat robotic system capable of replacing military personnel in especially dangerous situations.
The weight of the main platform is 12 tons, the weight of the payload is 4.1 tons. Type-X can be dropped from transport aircraft C-140 Hercules or KC-390 Millenium. The A400M Atlas can carry two, and the C-17 Globemaster III can carry five combat vehicles. The most powerful weapon that can be mounted on the Type-X is the 50mm automatic cannon.
In addition, the Type-X can be equipped with a low-profile remote-controlled turret with a 25mm M242 Bushmaster cannon, a 30mm 230LF cannon and Alcotan, MMP, Javelin or SPIKE anti-tank missiles.
The machine is only 68 cm high and the rear engine provides a significant level of stealth. The maximum speed when moving forward is 80 km / h, in the opposite direction - 50 km / h. According to the company, the Type-X is four times cheaper than a conventional BMP.
It can also be equipped with a panoramic circular sight, CCD cameras, an integrated AI system with tracking, point navigation and obstacle detection.
