Russian Uralvagonzavod plans to introduce test models of new combat robots in a couple of years.

"We will be able to show prototypes in 1.5 to 2 years. We are gradually moving away from crewed machines," Vyacheslav Khalitov Uralvagonzavod (UVZ) deputy chief executive was quoted as saying by Sputnik Tuesday.

Khalitov named the Armata T-14 tank, built by UVZ, as an example of the manufacturer’s efforts to do away with piloted military technology, promising to reduce its crew numbers from three to two.

The T-14 Armata is a Russian 5th generation main battle tank based on the Armata Universal Combat Platform. It was displayed in public initially with its turret and cannon shrouded during rehearsals for the 2015 Moscow Victory Day Parade.

Even though unit costs are a concern, the Russian army plans to acquire 2,300 T-14s within next five years.
