The engineering and sapper brigade of the Western Military District (WMD), stationed in the Moscow region, received two Uran-6 robotic mine clearance complexes.

The complex is controlled by the operator using a console at a distance of up to 1 km, which ensures safe removal during explosions of mines and shells.

Despite the small dimensions and weight of 6-7 tons, the machine is able to withstand blasting up to 60 kg of TNT. In addition, the equipment of the complex allows to detect dangerous objects, and then determine their type. Thus, depending on the type of ammunition detected, the complex operator can choose the most effective and safe method of decontamination.

The complex will significantly increase the safety of sappers when working with dangerous objects. The operators of the complex have completed training in the mine action center of the Russian Armed Forces and will soon begin to develop a robot sapper.
