The Ministry of Defense will show at the parade of the “Terminator”. But this is not a robot, but an armored car


With two guns and three soldiers inside.

The Ministry of Defense of Russia has published a video about the capabilities of the tank machine “Terminator”. It was adopted by the Army in April and will be used for the first time in the parade on Red Square on May 9.

The combat vehicle is designed to conduct maneuver operations in the tank and motorized rifle divisions. It has two twin 30 mm automatic cannons, two course automatic grenade launchers AG-17D, four anti-tank guided missiles “Ataka” and a 7.62 mm PKTM machine gun. The car is driven by three crew members.

The unofficial name “Terminator” armament was received because of its ability to shoot simultaneously from all guns at targets located at different ranges and at different angles. In addition, the machine is positioned as a support and “bodyguard” for tanks.

The Ministry of Defense of Russia decided to purchase the first batch from Uralvagonzavod in 2017. The first car army units were in March. Deliveries of equipment will be completed in 2019.
