Israeli Unmanned Ground Vehicle Spotted On Separation Line In Gaza Strip (Photos)
On June 19, the National Resistance Brigades (NRB), the military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, shared photos of Israeli troops operating on the separation line around the Gaza Strip.
One of the photos shows a Jaguar unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) conducting a patrol along the separation line.#gallery-1 margin: auto; #gallery-1 .gallery-item float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 25%; #gallery-1 img border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; #gallery-1 .gallery-caption margin-left: 0; /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */
The Jaguar UGV, which was developed by the Israel Aerospace Industries, entered service with IDF units around the Gaza Strip last April.
The UGV is armed with a 7.62 mm MAG machine gun which can operate while stationary or on the move. It utilizes high-resolution cameras, transmitters, powerful headlights, and a remote-controlled Public Address system.
Additionally, the Jaguar has the ability to self-destruct if it falls into enemy hands. However, its most unique ability is its semi-autonomous system. The Jaguar is capable of driving by itself to a predetermined destination while spotting and bypassing obstacles using sensors and an advanced driving system, all while its operators and commanders have full operational control.
The NRB did not specify when the Jaguar photo were taken. It may have been taken before the last battle in the Gaza Strip, which broke out on May 10.
The Jaguar enables the IDF to patrol the separation line around Gaza without risking its troops. Palestinian factions in the enclave have both the will and the ability to launch surprise attacks along and behind the separation line.
