Belarus to unveil new Bogomol and Centaur unmanned ground systems

Belarus’s Bogomol and Centaur armed unmanned ground systems will make its maiden public appearance during country’s Republic Day military parade in Minsk on 3 July. 

The new unmanned ground systems developed by the LLC BSVT – new technologies are remote-controlled robotic systems carry weapons of various kinds and comprise optoelectronic and navigation systems.

During military parade for the first time will showcase the new Centaur unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) equipped with a coaxial machine gun and Bogomol unmanned self-propelled anti-tank guided missile (SPATGM) ground system.


The Centaur is the latest version of the new unmanned ground system by Belarus’s company and designed to conduct effective fire from a place at ranges up to 1000 m at manpower and unmanned aerial vehicles moving at speeds up to 300 km/h.


The new UGV is equipped with a coaxial four-barreled rotary machine gun GShG-7.62 with aimed firing range up to 1000m.  The system can be used for perimeter or object guarding in an automated mode by surveying or patrolling.

Remote control of the system from a distance of up to 5000 m allows ensuring of the personal safety during the performance of combat missions. Using the advanced optoelectronic systems guarantees an easy control and accuracy of target detection and recognition. High maneuver and passing ability ensure the performance of tasks in difficult terrain conditions under all-weather environments.

The Bogomol is designed to maintain effective fire from the place at ranges up to 4000m at tanks and other enemy armored targets that have speed up to 75km/h, as well as for firing at small-sized targets (permanent emplacement, earth-and-timber emplacement). Besides the main purpose the System has the ability to fire at ranges up to 5000m at helicopters, which maximum speed is up to 300km/h and altitude – 500m.


For missile control on the trajectory the gunner holds the reticle on the target, and the guidance system automatically directs a missile to it. The coordinates of the missile with respect to the aiming line are determined by the optical system at on-board source of modulated light. The control commands are transmitted over narrowly focused radio beam.
