As unmanned vehicles continue to spread, the British army says robot soldiers could be used extensively in the army in the 2030s.
Many armies around the world have started to rely on unmanned vehicles in many areas, especially aircraft. In this context, important investments and developments were made on the UAV / SİHA side in our country. The UK has an ambitious vision of robot soldiers.
According to the report from the Guardian, the chief of the armed forces, Sir Nick Carter, said he believes a quarter of the British Army will be made up of robots by the 2030s. There are no clear targets in this regard. However, we can see that robots are at the forefront of a possible conflict decades later, although not very close.
At least it’s not surprising that Britain is turning more to robots. As a matter of fact, it is stated that while there is an expectation of 82,050 trained soldiers in the army, this figure remains at 73,870. The goal is to reduce dependence on soldiers and even expand the army with robots.
It is not clear in which areas these robots can work. It is also a matter of curiosity how autonomous robots that do not require human intervention will function.
