The Kalashnikov Concern defense manufacturing company just released a video showing all kinds of new weapons and equipment.
The video begins with the Nahlebnik “Parasite” unmanned ground combat vehicle engaging a brick structure and obliterating part of the wall.
The Parasite can be mounted with a number of different weapons systems including a four-barrel GSHG-7.62mm machine gun that is capable of firing 6,000 rounds per minute, a 12.7mm heavy machine gun, or a set of four grenade launchers.
The video goes on to show a thermal birds-eye view of the demonstrating troops. The clip is likely being recorded by the ZALA 421-16Е series of unmanned aerial vehicles, which come in different sizes while hosting different reconnaissance and observation features.
The buggy briefly seen in the video is a concept vehicle known as the “Tourist.” The vehicle was unveiled at the international military expo “Army-2017, but it’s not known if the actual Russian military will begin fielding it.
Of course their video wouldn’t be complete without showing off their legendary brand of small-arms. Kalashnikov is obviously best known for their rifles, including the one that started it all: the AK-47.
