Israel adds a new technological signing to its army. The Ministry of Defense presented this week a tank, a robotic combat vehicle capable of operating without a crew and autonomously, also equipped with different recognition systems.

Although at the moment the Israeli authorities have not provided too many details and the evidence in “representative scenarios” they won’t start until 2023one of the firms involved in the project has shared a video in which you can see how it launches drones or its reconnaissance system.

The new military vehicle is called M-RCV —the acronym for Medium Robotic Combat Vehicle—, has been presented at Elbit Systems during the eurosatory exhibitionheld in Paris, and its creators emphasize that it incorporates “cutting-edge technologies” thanks to the collaboration of different firms.

Start testing in 2023

What points out The Times of IsraelInstitutions and companies with an important role in the sector are involved in the project: M-RCV is based on the BLR-2 unmanned vehicle, manufactured by the Israeli company BL; the country’s Tank and APC Directorate assumed the development of the machine gun turret 30mm and Elbit System took over the active protection system, the Iron First. The missile launch device took it over Israel Aerospace I.a key company in the national sector.

Among its equipment, the M-RCV includes a launcher of “Spike” missiles, a capsule that allows you to transport, launch and pick up drones for reconnaissance tasks, passive sensors and the Iron First active protection system. It has the capacity to carry loads and can execute advanced maneuvers. In the video shared by Elbit he is seen moving through different terrains.

“The capabilities of the M-RCV include a highly autonomous solution for advanced reconnaissance and controlled lethality in all-terrain conditions,” point out from the Israeli Ministry of Defense, which emphasizes that the new vehicle is capable of moving day and night, withstanding all types of climates and with “minimal intervention” from the operator. Israel already lays hands on autonomous combat vehicles in control of its border with the Gaza Strip.

The presentation of the new tank, which will begin testing in 2023 and for which Israel has not yet specified a start-up date, comes shortly after the country’s authorities present their new vehicles fighter of Israel Aerospace Industries.
