As more and more battlefield roles are turned over to unmanned vehicles, the Russian Army is embracing additional types for more dangerous actions typically handled by humans. The 6-ton "Uran-6", by JSC 766 UPTK, is a relatively new entry to the Russian ranks, developed for the all-important, ultra-critical role of mine-clearance/demining. The vehicle is in active service with Russian armed forces and has seen deployment to the Chechen Republic in mid-2014, Syria in 2016, and - most recently - as part of the peacekeeping-minded Russian contingent in Azerbaijan across war-torn Nagorno-Karabakh.

The vehicle is designed to actively participate in mine removal/mine destruction operations in dense urban or lightly-populated remote areas. The Uran-6 carries on its hull a mine flail under a dozer-like housing at the bow and has access to other implements for the role: a tiller, "gripper", crane, and heavy mine-roller. A robotic arm allows for more precise manipulation of items and ground obstacles when needed and this component is supported by a fork-lift and shovel attachment. All of this can be controlled by a single ground operator positioned safely from the work zone at distances up to 1 kilometer away.

Dimensions of the Uran-6 vehicle include a length of 14.6 feet with a width of 6.56 feet and a height of 4.89 feet. This allows it to be transportable in a conventional Russian military truck and made ready-to-use in short order. Beyond this, its compact footprint allows it to be air-transportable via helicopter (Mi-8 or similar) or in the hold of a tactical-level transport.

The vehicle is powered by a diesel-fueled engine developing 240 horsepower and driving the system to road speeds of 5 kmh. Range is equal to five consecutive hours of operation. The track-over-wheel nature of its design ensures some cross-country capability as the vehicle is able to traverse angles of 20-degrees and climb obstacles up to four feet in height. Its inherent weight and armor protection allow the Uran-6 to survive modest explosions with little impact to core operating systems - tested against 132lb of explosive material.©MilitaryFactory.com
