Russian army will use Vikhr UGV unmanned ground vehicle BMP-3 IFV robotic military system.
Russian army is on the way to implement the concept and combat use of UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicle or Robotic Military Systems in its armed forces. Based to the concept, the share of robots in the overall structure of Russian military equipment should reach 30 percent in the next eight years including the Vikhr robot based on Russian-made BMP-3 IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle).

According to the Russian newspaper to the Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya, Russian defense industry is ready to contribute to this new concept by the delivering of a large quantity of UGVs (Unmanned Ground Vehicles) to all the services of Russian armed forces.

At the International Military Technical Forum Army-2016, Russian defense industry has presented a new concept of robotic military systems base on BMP-3 IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle) called the Vikhr. This new UGV could enter in service with the Russian armed forces in the next few months.

The Vikhr is remotely controlled reconnaissance vehicle that has a combat weight of 14,700 kg and which can be used to engage ground and aerial targets. It has the same performances as the original BMP-3 IFV using the same powerpack and suspension components. The Vikhr can run at a maximum speed of 60 km/hr with a maximum cruising range of 600 km. It is fully amphibious, propelled in the water by two water-jets at the rear of the hull at a maximum speed of 10 km/h.

The original turret of the BMP-3 was removed and replaced by a new smaller turret mounted in the center top hull of the Vikhr which is armed with one 30mm automatic cannon 2A72, a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun and six anti-tank guided missiles Kornet-M, three on each side of the turret.
