Light RCVs from QinetiQ in live-fire trials

​The U.S. Army has been testing Robotic Combat Vehicles (RCVs) that would operate alongside its Next-Generation Combat Vehicle. The Army is planning light, medium, and heavy variants and awarded the prototype contract for the light model to QinetiQ North America and Pratt Miller. The RCVs recently participated in live-fire testing with tethered drones to locate targets. Soldiers remotely fired automatic weapons, machine guns, and grenade launchers to strike enemy vehicles.
