“Revolutionizing Soldier Safety: The Autonomous Combat wаггіoг Wiesel”

The Autonomous Combat Warrior Wiesel can be operated manually, remote-controlled or in full autonomous mode by programming waypoints on a tablet.

What will be the next ωєαρσиs in the evolution of mankind’s ωєαρσиs? According to military scientists, the future will see the dominance of modern automatic ωєαρσиs. In Germany, defense company Rheinmetall recently announced it has developed a new robotic ground vehicle based on the Wiesel platform, known as the “Autonomous Combat Warrior Wiesel”.

On a twitter post Rheinmetall said, “Rheinmetall presents Autonomous Combat Warrior Wiesel: Mature platform meets high tech autonomy advancement.” Accordingly, the Autonomous Combat Warrior Wiesel (ACW) is driven by a state of the art autonomous kit which is applicable to a variety of both tracked and wheeled vehicle systems such as Boxer, Lynx or HX tactical trucks.

The new vehicle can be operated manually, remote-controlled or in full autonomous mode by programming waypoints on a tablet. It can avoid obstacles autonomously and it can also follow a lead vehicle in convoy mode. Next-generation features include detecting soldier behavior and off-road terrain. The ultimate goal is improving soldier safety by keeping operators out of harm’s way.

The Wiesel Armoured ധҽąքօղs Carrier (AWC) is a German light air-transportable armoured fighting vehicle, more specifically a lightly armoured ωєαρσиs carrier. It is quite similar to historical scouting tankettes in size, form and function, and is the only true modern tankette in use in Western Europe.

The Wiesel 2 is a stretched version of the Wiesel 1, with a fifth roadwheel. The engine was changed to a 1.9L Volkswagen in-line four-cylinder turbo diesel with direct injection and intercooler, giving 109 hp coupled to a ZF automatic transmission. The Wiesel 2 is generally bigger, faster and stronger than the Wiesel 1, with advanced features for the protection of the crew such as enhanced armour, an air conditioning system, and NBC protection. The Wiesel has been used in several of the Bundeswehr’s missions abroad.
