A Russian manufacturer says it is adapting one of its ground robots to target Abrams and Leopard tanks—the types heading to Ukraine from the United States, Germany, Poland and other countries…

You just can't make up some of the stuff the Russians say sometimes… 😧😎 No doubt 'bots becoming more and more SOP on the battlefield, etc. But if the Russians say anything about 'droids/'bots/AI, etc. You better not bet the farm on it.

You could target an M1 Abrams with a stick.

Yeah, "target" is a potent verb in some cases, but not here.

Yeah, you are going to have to use something bigger than a stick ! 😁

Requires 80% imported parts you say? And a huge proportion of your IT professionals have fled the country since they don't fancy dying in frozen muddy field for a cause they don't really believe in! Not going to happen – well they might have one or two.

I'm going with propaganda.

This is the recon robot that is proposed to be armed to target Abrams and Leopard tanks.
The only benefit of this would be not to lose a crew when it is destroyed. Since when did the Russian MoD care about crew safety?

And I bet they attack their own tanks first just like WW2.
