US Army to begin testing armoured robotic vehicles In 2020

The US army has said in a release on Thursday that it will begin live testing a new Robot Combat Vehicle (RCV) next year, ONA reports quoting sputniknews.

The tests will not involve vehicles meant for immediate combat situations, they will be used to showcase new technologies which may be integrated in the future as well as how soldiers could use them in the field.

The vehicles are controlled by Mission Enabler Technologies-Demonstrators (MET-Ds), which are upgraded Bradley Fighting Vehicles that are manned by a crew inside the vehicle using touchscreen panels.

The MET-D's sport a remote turret with a 23mm gun and have 360 degree situational awareness.
