The special military operation served as a catalyst for innovation in the Russian defense industry and revealed that AI-powered machines are the future of warfare.
The Russian Armed Forces unleashed a brand-new ground-launched kamikaze robot Lyagushka (meaning "Frog") on the Ukrainian militants, the Defense Ministry announced. The mine-laden robot sneaked into enemy trenches and blew up the nest of heavy machinery and its crew.

"Soldiers of the special forces of the Tsentr combat group used the ground-based robotic complex Lyagushka for the first time and destroyed a Ukrainian machine-gun crew during the offensive operation in the direction of Avdeyevka," the official statement said.

The ground-based unmanned mobile vehicle is powered by an electric motor, which makes it virtually silent. Combined with its relatively small size and speed of up to 20km/h, it can reach enemy positions undetected and deliver up to 30kg of explosive payload.
The robot is operated by a crew of three military personnel using a remote control and special goggles. A camera installed on the antenna of the device allows the operator to avoid obstacles while directing the drone to the target. The additional antenna of the complex allows maintaining control over the drone at a distance of more than three kilometers.
