Russia’s Engineering Troops are set to receive more than 600 systems in 2020, said the service’s commander, Lieutenant General Yuri Stavitskiy.


He reported that the troops received more than 500 engineering systems, including maintenance vehicles, PP-2005M pontoon bridges, TMT-K mine rollers, and BMK-MO boats last year. “In 2019 the military adopted the IMP-3, MG-1I penetrating radar, and PPO-2I dual mine detectors, BMK-MT and BMK-MO boats for pontoon bridges, and other kit,” said Lt Gen Stavitskiy.

Two new engineering unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) are under development. “The IMRTK-RT UGV is designed to clear paths through minefields and for minesweeping in remote control mode, while the IMRTK-ShR UGV will be capable of conducting engineering tasks under fire and supporting engineering assault teams in urban environments,” Lt Gen Stavitskiy explained.
