A Russian company has declared that they are modifying one of their ground robots to be able to target M1 Abrams and Leopard tanks, which are being sent to Ukraine by the United States, Germany, Poland, and other countries.

On Wednesday, Dmitry Rogozin, the former head of Roscosmos and current leader of the “Royal Wolves” group, declared via Telegram that he was coordinating with the Advanced Research Foundation and Android Technology to create a combat variant of the Marker ground reconnaissance robot, which was developed by Android.

In a post on Telegram, Rogozin proclaimed that before the coming of the Abrams and Leopards to Ukraine, we ought to be equipped for their annihilation with our own version of the Marker.

In an interview with RIA Novosti, Rogozin declared that the Marker could recognize and target the Abrams, Leopard, and other enemy vehicles because its control system had an electronic catalog with images of the adversary’s equipment.

2018 was a year when Android became a topic of conversation due to a declaration that FEDOR, a robotic cosmonaut, was to be placed aboard the International Space Station. Unfortunately, this ultimately did not come to fruition.

Sam Bendett, an adjunct senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security and adviser at the CNA Corporation, does not expect Russia to deploy significant ground combat robots to Ukraine.
