UK Orders Rheinmetall Autonomous Unmanned Ground Vehicles

The British Ministry of Defence has ordered seven Rheinmetall Mission Master autonomous unmanned ground vehicles (A-UGVs) to assess their effectiveness operating with ground troops.

The order includes “four Rheinmetall Mission Master SP A-UGVs in an Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) configuration and three Rheinmetall Mission Master SP – Cargo vehicles.”

The vehicles will be delivered by August for the British Army’s three-stage Robotic Platoon Vehicles program. The contract includes training, support services, and spare parts.


The Mission Master’s “low-signature electric motor, silent drive mode, and compact profile” allow it to move undetected, performing “last-mile resupply missions, silent watch operations, and carriage of light payloads, such as section sensors and ωєαρσи systems.”
