An army of ‘killer robots’ that will assist infantry on the battlefield has been unveiled in propaganda footage released by Russia

The video, released by the Kremlin, appears to showcase the state’s latest drone technology.

That includes and AI-controlled driverless tank that follow the aim of a soldier’s rifle to obliterate targets with its own weaponry.

Russia’s Advanced Research Foundation (ARF) said the ultimate goal is to have an army of robots entirely controlled by Artificial Intelligence algorithms.

Currently the drones are deployed alongside infantry who remotely control the vehicles, but in the future the tech will be fully autonomous.

That means the military hardware will be able to target and kill enemies without any human intervention.

‘The evolution of combat robots is on the path of increasing the ability to perform tasks in autonomous mode with a gradual reduction in the role of the operator,’ a spokesperson for the ARF told C41SRNET.

The video was uploaded to YouTube by the ARF and shows off the capabilities of the killer tech.
