Forbes is reporting that this Ukrainian robotic ground vehicle will be entering combat starting next week.

GNOM Robotic Scout

It uses a 2 kilometer long spool of fiber-optic cable, so will be able to work when jamming equipment is being used. (Though it will mean the GNOM would have to return back using the same route to reel in the fiber-optics.)
If the cable is cut, the GNOM will return to a preprogrammed location. Not sure if it would have the ability to cut the spool if needed

The manufacturer website doesn't show the the same information (the GNOM there has no fiber-optic spool or 7.62mm machine gun).

Would be interesting to see in what quantities they would be issued, but likely will only be a few units for testing.


I had previously looked for use of the Russian Uran-9 robotic tank, but they do not seem to be deployed in Ukraine.
(The Uran-6 demining vehicles have been used in DPR and Mariupol.

Thanks for fixing the link to the Termerland website. I had put it.. now it just says "link"

Here is the link to the original article as well in Forbes.

Here is actual footage of a 6 wheel version (looks a bit less off-road than the renders of the 4 wheel version)
