The Ukrainian Armed Forces received new ground drones for testing on the front line.


This was reported by RBC-Ukraine regarding Defence Express.

The Ukrainian Armor company handed over the AGEMA advanced robotic platform to the Armed Forces of Ukraine for testing. The platform was developed by Milanion from the UAE, and Ukrainian Armor has adapted it for use in Ukrainian conditions and is making improvements.

The purpose of testing the AGEMA robotic platform on the front line is to evaluate its capabilities in real combat conditions. Based on the results of the tests, the Ukrainian military will decide whether any improvements need to be made to the platform and, if so, at what facilities they should be carried out: either in Ukraine or by sending them to Milanion partners.

The AGEMA platform weighs 602 kilograms and is equipped with a 40-horsepower internal combustion engine. It can carry up to 622 kilograms of cargo on land, 330 kilograms of cargo on water, or tow a load of up to 544 kilograms.

The AGEMA 8x8 is capable of traveling at speeds of up to 29 km/h on land and up to 5 km/h on water. It can be used for a variety of tasks, such as logistics support, reconnaissance, casualty evacuation, launching or fighting unmanned aerial vehicles, providing cellular communications, and performing humanitarian functions.
