Description
The IMR-2 is range of Russian engineer armoured vehicle which is designed to clear obstacle on the battlefield. This combat engineer vehicle is designed for mobility operations, creating convoy tracks and accomplishing other engineer tasks. The IMR-2 Is the second version of obstacle clearing vehicle which replaced the IMR based on T-55 main battle tank chassis. Today, IMR-2 is the most efficient and promising combat engineer vehicle. It can perform all types of work under fire, on the battlefield contaminated by nuclear fallout, and in the atmosphere contaminated by aggressive gases, vapours or chemical agents and filled with smoke and dust. Vehicle’s reliability has been proven both in combat and in disaster relief operations. IMR-2 is equally efficient as a combat engineer vehicle and as an emergency rescue vehicle. IMR-2 features formidable multifunction dozer blade and mine plough, both being complemented nicely by multipurpose manipulator that ousted legacy gripper-type manipulator tool. A multipurpose manipulator can even take and hold objects as small as a matchbox, e.g. radioactive fragments. It has capabilities of a manipulator, can operate as a grab bucket, a pull and push shovel, a scraper, and a ripper. IMR-2 is capable of creating tracks in moderately rugged terrain, low forest, unbroken snow-covered expanses and on slopes, rooting stumps out, felling trees, breaching abatis, rubble, minefields and non-explosive obstacles. The vehicle can cope with rubble and damaged buildings and structures, dig trenches and foundation pits, dig out sandedin materiel and shelters, fill pits, ditches and ravines, prepare ditches, escarpments, dams, and crosses over tank ditches and escarpments. IMR-2 can set up sections of bridges and make ingress and egress at fording sites.

Armament

A 12.7 mm NSVT machine is mounted on the crew operator/commander hatch, for the self-protection of the vehicle.

Protection
The IMR-2 variants vehicles are based on the T-72 main battle chassis. The hull and the small operator cupola are made in steel, which give protection against small arms firing and shell splinters. The cupola of the operator is fitted with small bullets-proof windows on 360°.
Propulsion
The IMR-2 is motorized with a V-84-1 V-12 multifuel liquid-cooled diesel developing 840 hp. The IMR-2 can run at a maximum speed of 50 km/h on road with a maximum range of 500 km. The power pack is mounted at the rer of the vehicle. The torsion bar suspension each side consists of six roadwheels with the idler at the front, drive sprocket at the rear and three return rollers supporting the inside of the track only. Shock-absorbers are fitted at the first, second and sixth roadwheel stations.
Accessories
The IMR-2 is equipped with an hydraulically operated dozer blade mounted at the front of the hull which is 1 m high and 3.38 m wide when being used in the V-blade configuration, 3.925 m wide when being used in the straight dozing position and 3.212 m wide when being used in the grading position. On the top of the hull is mounted a a telescopic arm which can also be fitted with a manipulator and can be traversed through a full 360º. With a reach of 8.15 m it can lift 2,000 kg. When travelling this is normally traversed to the rear.The telescopic arm can be operated by remote control as well as from within the vehicle. In addition, the IMR-2 can be also fitted with a KMT-R plough type mine clearing system complete with an electromagnetic device to activate anti-tank mines before they come into contact with the vehicle. The standard equipment of the IMR-2 includes night vision equipment for the commander and driver, NBC system of the overpressure type, fire detection and suppression system and an engine starting pre-heater. The IRM-2 can also create smoke screen by injecting diesel fuel into the exhaust outlet on the left side of the hull, as for all russian made armoured vehicles.
