In an era of growing interest regarding Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Army services are also looking into the concept to fulfill various on-ground battlefield roles including that of reconnaissance, resupply, weapons carrier, and fire support. Kalashnikov Group (named after the famous Soviet-era gunsmith) of Russia has developed its BAS-01G BM "Soratnik" as an Unmanned Combat Ground Vehicle (UCGV) for the purpose of weapons-carrying, armed reconnaissance, and infantry fire support. The design mates a tracked, tank-like chassis with a compact turret over center. The turret supports medium- and large-caliber projectile weapons (including 7.62mm, 14.5mm and 30mm Automatic Grenade Launchers) and can also be configured to carry 8 x 9M133M "Kornet-EM" (NATO: AT-14 "Spriggan") Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGMs) for the tank-killing role.

The tracked nature of the vehicle permits cross-country travel as well as traversal through low-level water sources. This also aids the vehicle in keeping pace with the main mechanized fighting force. The unmanned design allows for a more compact footprint and modest power supply to be installed. Overall ready-weight is approximately 15,435lb and road speeds reach 25 miles per hour with operational ranges out to 250 miles. While generally marketed as unmanned, the BAS-01G product still sees a certain level of operator control functionality built in.

It remains to be seen how much market interest in generated in the Soratnik (and vehicles of its kind) as many armed services of the world still favor manned combat systems. The vehicle was debuted in a 2016 Moscow military exhibition.
