Israeli defense giant unveils robot tank

Israeli defense giant Elbit Systems has just unveiled an intelligent combat robot that can carry out missions to destroy enemy troops and tanks on its own.

The ROBUST medium robotic combat vehicle was introduced at the Eurosatory land defense exhibition in Paris.

The vehicle includes a new type of robotic platform BLR-2 built by BL, a 30 mm self-propelled turret developed by the Tank Directorate and APC for the APC “Eitan”, Elbit’s “Iron Fist” Active Protection System, fire control and management system task manager, and robotic automatons, in addition to the situational awareness system. The vehicle also features a flipping drone for forward reconnaissance missions and a passive sensor developed by Elbit Systems and Foresight.


The technology demonstration, led by the DDR&D Department of Defense and the Department of Tanks and APC, integrates a number of cutting-edge technologies including advanced maneuverability, the ability to carry heavy and varied missions, as well as an integrated system for transporting and receiving UAVs.

The vehicle will also integrate sights, IAI missile launchers and the Rafael Advanced Defense System “Spike” missile. The capabilities of the M-RCV include a highly autonomous solution for forward reconnaissance and controlled damage in all terrain conditions. It operates day and night in all weather situations, while emphasizing operational efficiency, simplicity, minimal operator intervention, and integration into heterogeneous unmanned arrays.

The system was developed as part of an autonomous battlefield concept led by DDR&D in partnership with the Tanks and APC Boards while implementing an open architecture to integrate capabilities in future and integrate robotics with other tools and capabilities.

The system is the product of a multi-year partnership investment by DDR&D and the Tank and APC Board of Directors and is expected to begin field testing in 2023 in representative scenarios.
