For over a decade VPK LLC – a Russian defense contracting company – has been manufacturing the GAZ Tigr as an armored ground vehicle for their military. Established as a means of defense in the nation’s conflicts around the region, the Tigr fits up to 10 soldiers seated with gear and built to tackle Russia’s harsh terrain. Now, according to TASS -a Russian news agency- the newest design has removed the human element entirely, turning the Tigr into a remote control war machine on wheels.

The new vehicle is a special purpose product that’s equipped with a combat module and a 30-mm automatic gun on the roof that is also controlled remotely. And if that wasn’t enough already, the vehicle is also outfitted with state-of-the-art autonomous driving technologies allowing it to identify and track down targets on its own. Needless to say, you wouldn’t want to be in the Tigr’s war path, especially after watching what it is capable of in the video below.
