The company behind one of the world’s famous guns, the AK-47 rifle, is building a 20 ton unmanned drone tank, according to Guns.com.

In an interview with Russian media, Kalashnikov Concern CEO Alexei Krivoruchko, said a new 20-ton platform (described as a “робота” — robot) is under development which, when compared to what Kalash already markets, is huge.

In an interview with state-run media outlet Tass (Russian) (Google Translate), Krivoruchko hyped the partially-state run factories progress on advanced weapons including the new RPK-16 light machine gun before moving on to the mechanical elephant in the room– unmanned ground combat vehicles, reported Guns.com.
