Russian Combat Robot Platforma M

Russian Combat Robot Platforma M

Marines of the Russian Pacific Navy have got new helpers, the newest Russian combat robots called “Platforma-M”.  It just arrived for the army and was initially presented in 2013. Think of it as a mini tank that can spy on your enemies, kill them with the onboard machine gun or shoot grenades from its four grenade launching tubes and you get an idea of this machine. Thanks to the awesome blogger Youri who went to the Navy base and took these photos so we can see it too!

Platforma M is a full combat machine used for scouting and finding enemy targets and is also a subtle and small moving vehicle. It can be guided by an operator or move on its own. It can find targets, target them and shoot fully automatically! How scary is this?

    • Its everything else but defenitely not the Platforma M!
      Platforma M is smaller.. as you can see here.
      The Vehicle which was shot by the TOW is even larger than a pickup-truck (which you can also see in the video).

      • Darknesss99 Are you sure? This is an 13th Division video. They are in the “moderate” rebels list hasanmustafas.wordpress.com/2015/05/08/the-moderate-rebels-a-complete-and-growing-list-of-vetted-groups-fielding-tow-missiles
