The Russian army has allegedly sent Marker combat robots to Ukraine, an autonomous combat system tasked with destroying Western tanks like the Leopard and Abrams. Earlier Russian former space boss Dmitry Rogozin announced on his Telegram Channel that the combat robot would be deployed on the Ukraine battlefields.
The Marker is an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), which according to Rogozin will be equipped with algorithms for conducting warfare within a group of combat robots. “The first four Marker robots have arrived in the region strictly on schedule. We begin downloading target images and testing algorithms of warfare within a unit of combat robots and installing powerful anti-tank armament,” the post said.
