The Black Knight
is a prototype Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle
designed by BAE Systems
. Similar in size and appearance to a tank, It is armed with a turret-mounted 30mm gun along with a coaxial machine gun as well. Although the armored vehicle can be controlled from a command center, the Black Knight does feature some autonomous functions in the turret and can also plan a route without hitting obstacles by itself. If necessary, the Black Knight can also be controlled by a Dismounted Control Device, or DCD. Information from the robot is relayed to and viewed by the Commander's Independent Viewer (CIV), or to the DCD in the latter case.
