Thailand to test out combat UGV
Thailand has become the latest country to receive the THeMIS UGV from Milrem Robotics, after a Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) variant was delivered to the Defence Technology Institute (DTI) in line with a November 2019 agreement.
The RCV will be tested and evaluated by the Royal Thai Army and DTI ‘in the near future’, THeMIS manufacturer Milrem Robotics announced on 8 February.
‘Cooperation with DTI will grow the local robotic technology capabilities in Thailand in terms of the local assembly and system integration,’ said Milrem CEO Kuldar Väärsi.
THeMIS can also be armed with ATGMs and a 40mm grenade launcher.
