According to Mykhailo Fedorov, the UGV will be used by the army to conduct reconnaissance, logistics and attack or defensive operations. For the latter, the D-21-11 is equipped with a remotely operated weapon station whose armament can vary. The remotely-controlled D-11 turret, armed with a machine gun, has already passed successful tests and has received positive feedback from the military.

Currently, the developers plan to integrate NATO types of weapons into the turret and strengthen resistance to enemy electronic warfare (jamming). The technical team is currently working on scaling serial production.
