The first drone tank was invented by the French in 1915, but Germany and the USSR achieved their greatest success in building unmanned tanks by the beginning of World War II. Germany produced several tanks - from the tank-sapper, combing minefields, to the Goliath self-propelled mine (at KPDV). The Soviet designers concentrated their attention on the creation of teletanks - that is, radio-controlled tanks, and, I must say, achieved quite a lot in this area. The tanks were flame-throwing - so that the tank operator did not need to take aim (there were no cameras at that time), worked on the KB and VHF channels, and the tube radio receivers were mounted on special shock absorber springs. Protection mechanisms were also provided for - for example, in the event that the teletanka TT exited the reach of the control tank TU, the device of the “Stop” command automatically triggered in the TT. The tank stopped and waited with the working engine of the next team from the TU, which by then had to approach the TT at a distance of stable operation of the radio channels.
By the beginning of the war, 28 telemechanical groups were formed (that is, the control tank TU plus teletank - a total of 56 tanks), which became part of the 30th and 3rd 6th tank brigades. The teletankas participated in two battles - at the breakthrough of the Mannerheim line in the Finnish war and in 1942 near Sevastopol, but both times the results were sad.
