Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces are expected to receive new remotely operated combat vehicles and other advanced engineering armaments for improving manoeuvrability and survivability of mobile-based combat missile systems, in two years.
The SMF formations will receive about 20 Listva remote mine clearing vehicles, and about 50 engineering support & concealment vehicles by 2020, Moscow’s defense ministry said Monday.
The new remotely operated combat vehicle Listva detects mines using ground-penetrating radar and then uses ultra-high-frequency rays to neutralize them. It can detect mines and land mines at distances of up to 100 metres in the sector of 30 degrees. The vehicles will escort the Yars missile system.
According to the statement, more than 300 pieces of engineering equipment are planned to be delivered to the SMF engineering divisions. Among them there are obstacle removal vehicles, heavy mechanised bridges, excavators, truck cranes and other engineering armaments.
More than 50% of the supplied engineering equipment is to be wheeled road vehicles developed specifically for the Strategic Missile Forces this year, the statement added.
Russia has developed all-new antipersonnel smart mine with an electronic brain that prevents misfires and unauthorized handling. The Medalyon POM-3, when activated, fires an explosive charge shooting out star-shaped metal fragments in a 360-degree horizontal arc while minimizing their effect outside the mines designated effective range, Russian media reported on Friday
