Emirati firm to showcase UGV in Ukraine
Milanion will showcase the fully amphibious and modular Agema at the Arms and Security 21 trade show in Kiev on 15-18 June.
‘Engineered for the most demanding missions the Agema is simple to operate, affordable, and configured to customer requirements with a range of payloads providing interoperability between systems for a wide range of operational missions,’ the company added.
Shephard Defence Insight notes that Agema is available either in a 6x6 or 8x8 wheeled or tracked configuration. If operated in a fire support role, it can be armed with a single or twin 7.62mm machine gun, 12.7mm heavy machine gun or a 20mm cannon in a remote weapon station.
Although it can function autonomously, following pre-planned paths, Agema is primarily operated remotely. Its autonomous operating system can be paired with third-party devices and platforms.
