The Belarusian company "Belspetsvneshtechnika" demonstrated a robotic firing system, which was dubbed by the name of the most desperate ancient Scandinavian warriors - "Berserk"

The machine, mounted on a tracked chassis (tracks can rotate in opposite directions, which allows you to turn on the spot), is driven by a hybrid power plant. The gasoline engine is turned on mainly to recharge the batteries from which the electric motors and all the equipment of the Berserk are powered. In electric mode, the machine is not only silent, but also invisible to thermal imagers. Cross-country cruising speed is five kilometers per hour.

The body of the robot is made in a ratio of 1 to 3 - height to width. This option, as well as the low center of gravity, ensured maximum vehicle stability when firing.

The Belarusian drone is equipped with a four-channel optoelectronic station "Chizh". It works in video and thermal modes and has wide and narrow fields of view. A wide field of view provides a search for a target, and a narrow field of view - capture and tracking. The detection range of a target the size of a helicopter reaches about ten kilometers, and a small drone or a person - up to two kilometers. A tank or armored personnel carrier is recognized at a distance of six kilometers.

The operator can remotely control the robot via radio. But there is also the option of autonomous movement along a pre-programmed route, the car is able to move within 24 hours. At the same time, the drone can automatically detect targets and destroy them.

The Berserk is armed with a coaxial four-barreled 7.62 mm rapid-fire aircraft machine gun. It is mounted on a rotating platform and is designed to destroy small unmanned aerial vehicles and enemy manpower. The weapon has a high rate of fire - up to 6 thousand rounds per minute. The effective firing range is about 600 meters, and the maximum is up to a thousand. The machine gun can hit an air target that flies at speeds up to 300 kilometers per hour.

The combat robot has an anti-interference radio transmitter, both for telemetry signals and for high-definition video signal. The radius of stable control of Berserk in the city reaches approximately two kilometers, and in open areas - more than five. The repeater installed on the quadcopter significantly increases the communication range.
