Russian designers intend to develop a robot-based version of the T-90 tank.
“We have got a development area. We are now developing remote control. The T-90 is in question now. Why develop a new robot? There is nothing difficult about making it (T-90) robot-based” – Vyacheslav Khalitov, “Uralvagonzavod” deputy Director general on special-purpose equipment said to “Zvezda” radio station.
He added that an operator would be able to control the “robot-tank” at a distance of 3 to 5 km. However, other details of the project were left out.
It was reported earlier that Armata could become remotely controlled.
We remind that the T-90 Russian main battle tank was developed in late 1980s – early 1990s. It entered service in 1992 and was acknowledged as one of the world’s best-selling tanks of 2001-2010.
