Russian troops will receive a system of remote mining “Agriculture”


This was announced by the head of the engineering troops of the Central Military District, Colonel Andrey Gandzyuk. Factory tests of the system began a few years ago and were successfully completed. Such weapons will go to the troops for the first time. Источник aif.ru AiF.ru found out what features this machine has. In addition, at a given time, mines can be deactivated or self-destruct, which ensures safe and quick clearance after the cessation of hostilities. According to the colonel, the new system allows faster installation of minefields, especially in hard-to-reach places. The press service of the Central Military District specified that the “Agriculture” includes a combat vehicle on a KamAZ all-terrain chassis, a transport-loading vehicle and transport-launch containers with engineering ammunition equipped with mines. A separate engineering brigade of the Central Military District (TsVO), based in Bashkiria, will receive the “Agriculture” remote mining system by the end of the year. In 2020, the equipment was handed over to the army for military testing in conditions as close as possible to actual operation.
