Russia will showcase Platforma-M Combat Robot at an event in Kamchatka on July 26 marking Russian Naval Forces Day.

The robot is planned to provide fire support for an operation against simulated infiltrators during anti-terrorist drills, the press office of the Pacific Fleet reported.

A military and sports event that will involve a Platforma-M robot is scheduled for naval forces day. The new robotic attack system together with special military units will show off its capabilities against a simulated enemy.

The Platform-M was first displayed during last summer in Russian military drills Kaliningrad. It is equipped with grenade launchers and Kalashnikov rifles.

Along with the rifles and grenade launchers, the Platform-M also features optical-electronic and radio reconnaissance locators that allow it to function covertly at night.

The robot's developer, Progress Scientific Research Technological Institute of Izhevsk was quoted as saying by Gizmodo in a report this month on 15 that the Platform-M can be used for gathering intelligence, for discovering and eliminating stationary and mobile targets, for firepower support, for patrolling and for guarding important sites.
