The monster machine – called The Vikhr – is one of the world’s biggest unmanned military robots and boasts a whole host of sophisticated gear.

Footage filmed in a classified location in Russia shows The Vikhr face a range of tasks and absolutely smash them.

The gigantic 22ft-long tank – operated by a man sitting at a laptop with a joystick – rolls up and down hills, through grass, mud and several feet of water with absolute ease.

The Vikhr then shows off its full force by firing several rounds from its 30mm automatic gun before launching several missiles into the distance.

Other weapons available include a flamethrower and six anti-tank guided missiles.

Russia’s new tank can hit speeds of up to 37mph on dry land and 6.2mph through water

The coutnry is currently the third biggest military spender in the world, according to global security resource organisation SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute).

President Vladimir Putin spent over $69.2 billion (£53.4b) on the military last year, leaving them hot on the heels of the US and China.
