Engineering units of the Russian armed forces have received 13 new IMR-3M mine-clearance vehicles as part of a contract signed in 2016.

The IMR-3M, based on the T-90A tank, is equipped with a KMT-R3 track width mine plough with an EMT electromagnetic detachable device for trawling mines with rod-type and non-contact magnetic fuses. The vehicle is capable of lifting loads of up to 2t.

The vehicle is armed with the 12.7mm remote-controlled machine-gun mount. It can fire at ground, low-speed air targets, as well as explosive objects lying on the ground. The IMR-3M can be deployed in moderately rugged terrain and snow. It can remove minefields or perform work in contaminated areas.

The vehicle is also equipped with radiation, chemical reconnaissance and contamination control and has a high level of protection against radiation and toxic substances.
