False division

Empty tractors, inflatable targets with a thermal simulator of a running engine.

Alert support vehicle

Designed to provide electricity at the field position and in an emergency at the combat launch position; cooking and eating by personnel, recreation and everyday life, as well as organizing and carrying out guard duty. The dimensions and equipment of the machine are designed to support the life of ten people with personal belongings and weapons.

Remote mine clearance machine "Foliage"

Combat anti-sabotage vehicle "Typhoon-M"

Equipped with means of countering radio-controlled explosive devices. It also has a navigation system, a thermal imager for night reconnaissance, an echolocation system and an unmanned aerial vehicle for aerial reconnaissance. It is capable of detecting enemy equipment day and night at a distance of up to 6 km, and a foot saboteur - from 3 km.

Engineering support and camouflage vehicle

Functions: engineering reconnaissance of combat patrol routes and field positions in terms of dimensions and the presence of mine-explosive obstacles. If necessary - expansion of routes, demining, as well as camouflage of mobile ground-based missile systems in field positions.

Unified heat engine UTM-80M

Machine for degassing, decontamination and disinfection of large weapons. Allows to process autonomous launchers in the shortest possible time. In fact, it is the first full-fledged "de-icer" of domestic development.
