General Dynamics Land Systems–UK (GDLS–UK) displayed a TRX heavy tracked unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) with Brimstone missile launchers at the DSEI 2023 defence exhibition held in London on 12–15 September. The UGV has two pods with four MBDA Brimstone missiles each and two remotely operated weapon stations, one with a MAG 7.62 mm machine gun and the other with an M2 12.7 mm machine gun.

A GDLS–UK representative told Janes that his company had proposed a concept of operations to deploy an Ajax reconnaissance variant with one or more TRX wingmen with anti-tank guided missiles on its flanks that could target threats identified by the Ajax.

GDLS developed the TRX for the US Robotic Combat Vehicle-Medium competition, but GDLS–UK sees the integration of mission fits as where the UK branch of the company can really add value and UK intellectual property for the British Army. This includes intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR), lethality, battlefield engineering, direct fire and loitering munition mission packages, as well as autonomy, communications systems, and human-machine teaming applications to make an integrated system, for example the Ajax wingman.
