Will this replace the future soldier – Video
THeMIS is a platform attached to two tracks. The smart bit is hiding the battery pack, the diesel engine and the electric generator inside the tracks, freeing the space between them for anything the operator might need. And he’s got plenty to choose from.
The Milrem THeMIS can be equipped with anything from a stretch for evacuating wounded soldiers to a machine gun or even anti-tank weaponry. The armor won’t do much to help the THeMIS in case of enemy fire, that’s why it has to rely on its relatively reduced dimensions – two meters (6’7”) long, 2.1 meters (6’10”) wide and 0.9 meters (2’11”) high – and its maneuverability – top speed of 35 km/h (about 20 mph). With an overall weight of around 800 kg (1,763 lb) and a similar payload, the THeMIS will move fairly quickly on the battlefield, making it the perfect flanking weapon.
