"Uranus-6" is an armored sapper vehicle designed to demine cities, forests, and mountainous areas. The robot is equipped with four video cameras, interchangeable “trawlers,” and a mechanical grip - it’s also installed with technology able to detect various types of mines.  

The robot weighs no less than six tons and can be controlled remotely from up to one kilometer away. A single machine replaces the work of 20 sappers.

Its sibling "Uranus-9" is designed for reconnaissance and infantry support.

This year Russia will showcase new additions to its military, including the “Terminator” tank support vehicle, “Tor-M2” anti-aircraft missile system, and Su-57 fifth generation fighter jet.
