IMR-2MA combat engineer obstacle remover vehicle

IMR-2A combat engineer obstacle remover vehicle
UralVagonZavod - Russia

The IMR-2MA is the latest generation of Russian IMR-2 engineer obstacle clearing tracked armoured vehicle. The IMR-2MA combat engineer vehicle is designed for mobility operations, creating convoy tracks and accomplishing other engineer tasks. Today, the IMR-2MA is the most efficient and promising combat engineer vehicle. It can perform all types of work under fire, on the battlefield contaminated by nuclear fallout, and in the atmosphere contaminated by aggressive gases, vapours or chemical agents and filled with smoke and dust. Vehicle’s reliability has been proven both in combat and in disaster relief operations. IMR-2MA is equally efficient as a combat engineer vehicle and as an emergency rescue vehicle. IMR-2MA is capable of creating tracks in moderately rugged terrain, low forest, and unbroken snow-covered expanses and on slopes, rooting stumps out, felling trees, breaching abatis, rubble, minefields and non-explosive obstacles. The vehicle can cope with rubble and damaged buildings and structures, dig trenches and foundation pits, dig out sanded in materiel and shelters, fill pits, ditches and ravines, prepare ditches, escarpments, dams, and crosses over tank ditches and escarpments. IMR-2MA can set up sections of bridges and make ingress and egress at fording sites.
