The Ukrainian Armored Vehicles company handed over the AGEMA advanced robotic platform to the Armed Forces of Ukraine for testing. The platform was developed by Milanion from the UAE, and Ukrainian Armored Vehicles adapted it for use in Ukrainian conditions and is making its own improvements.
The purpose of testing the AGEMA robotic platform on the front line is to evaluate its capabilities in real combat conditions.

The AGEMA platform weighs 602 kilograms and is equipped with an internal combustion engine with a capacity of 40 horsepower. It can carry up to 622 kilograms of cargo by land, up to 330 kilograms of cargo by water, or tow cargo weighing up to 544 kilograms.
AGEMA 8×8 is capable of moving on land at speeds of up to 29 km/h, and on water at speeds of up to 5 km/h. It can be used for a variety of missions, such as logistics support, reconnaissance, casualty evacuation, launching or combating unmanned aerial vehicles, providing cellular communications and performing humanitarian functions.
