Russia Is Going To Make the First Combat Tractor

Posted on May 7, 2019 by team


By the end of 2019 the tractor factory of Chelyabinsk, Russia, is going to launch a serial production of “mine tractors” – an upgraded version of an armored agricultural machine BM 102S equipped by a special minesweep to deactivate anti-personnel and anti-tank mines.

Such tractor with a minesweep is cheaper and more maneuverable than a tank mine sweeper. It has a better motor capacity and its use is economically more reasonable.

The developers also cared about the safety of the personnel. If the minesweep gets in touch with a more powerful explosive device, the engine installed in the front will help to save the crew.

    I can’t believe the russian military have no armored dozers… anyway, it looks more like a toy compared to IDF’s Caterpillar D9… like the Stalinetz tractors of the 1940’s

    Looks very much like our D9

    I can save them the effort, they could just buy old ones from the British Army, only £10,000 each!
