Russian Military Robots worked together a field unit performing various tasks such as firing weapons for the first time in a training drill, Russian media reported.

Russia's Uran family of multirole battle robots have successfully passed military tests at the Novorossiysk proving grounds, RIA Novosti reported quoting an unnamed source.

The robots were controlled from a command center far away from the exercise site, according to the source."During tests at the Rayevsky proving grounds, engineering reconnaissances as well as the destruction of targets using machine guns and automatic cannons were tested. Battle robots practiced destroying armored equipment using anti-tank guided missiles," the source said.

The exercises were visited by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Army General Staff head Valery Gerasimov and several other high-ranking military officers.

Two of the Uran family robots will be demonstrated at the Army-2015 expo, including the mine-clearing robot and the fire fighting robot, although armed robots are not mentioned in the press release.
