FNSS is internally funding the multirole M113-based armed UGV and has developed an autonomy kit for driving while maintaining a human in the loop for weapons firing.

At IDEF 2021, FNSS unveiled an improved version of its baseline Golge Suvari (Shadow Rider) UGV. The original model was displayed during the previous iteration of IDEF.

The new Shadow Rider Combat is fitted with a 25mm turret and features autonomous driving capabilities.

According to FNSS's unmanned systems programme manager, Shadow Rider is the first and only heavy-class autonomous UGV. 'The vehicle's development process is ongoing. The vehicle's remote-controlled unmanned turret was designed particularly for the Shadow Rider,' he told Shephard

He stated that FNSS constructed the prototype with its own resources, and that there is currently no agreement.
