MOSCOW (Agencies): The Russian military has reportedly developed and used a robot named “Turtle” to deliver ammunition to troops in the combat zone.
The robot was used in the Luhansk People’s Republic, which has been embroiled in warfighting since the invasion began in 2022.
The robot can handle up to 500 kilograms of load and can travel up to 5 kilometers away from the front line.
The robot is electric and doesn’t make noise or “glow” in the heat spectrum, making it challenging to identify visually.
The company is developing updated “Turtle” robots designed with combat operations in mind, which will be larger and have distinct chassis, wheels, and tracks.
