The Russia economy is faltering at a rapid pace. The state of Russia’s affairs is at its lowest point in decades. Yet, with a military budget smaller than that of the U.S. and other NATO countries, the Russians are determined to gain the edge by developing better and more effective military technology. So far, they are doing an alarmingly remarkable good job.
Just watch this video on new robot tank technology that could pose a new challenge to U.S. and NATO power. Modern tanks are mobile land-weapon platforms, mounting a large-calibre cannon in a rotating gun turret. They combine this with heavy vehicle armour which provides protection for the crew, the vehicle’s weapons, and its propulsion systems, and operational mobility, due to its use of tracks rather than wheels, which allows the tank to move over rugged terrain and be positioned on the battlefield in advantageous locations. Nothing to sneeze at.
