An army magazine says Israel is working on an unmanned vehicle that would evacuate wounded soldiers from the battlefield. The soldiers' weekly Bamahaneh reports in its current edition that development is in the early stages. The article carries a picture of a flat, tank-like vehicle. It says the vehicle could be guided from afar, possibly using GPS satellite technology. It would ferry wounded soldiers back to field hospitals for treatment. The article says the advantage would be reducing the risk to medics treating wounded soldiers in the midst of battle. The weekly reports that development is in an early stage, and deployment is years away. It says also, planners are thinking about using unmanned aircraft to evacuate wounded soldiers.
