Description
The IMR-2MA is the latest generation of Russian IMR-2 engineer obstacle clearing tracked armoured vehicle. The IMR-2MA combat engineer vehicle is designed for mobility operations, creating convoy tracks and accomplishing other engineer tasks. Today, the IMR-2MA 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-2MA is equally efficient as a combat engineer vehicle and as an emergency rescue vehicle. IMR-2MA is capable of creating tracks in moderately rugged terrain, low forest, and 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 sanded in materiel and shelters, fill pits, ditches and ravines, prepare ditches, escarpments, dams, and crosses over tank ditches and escarpments. IMR-2MA can set up sections of bridges and make ingress and egress at fording sites.
 
Variants
-IMR: First version of Russian obstacle clearing vehicle based on T-55 main battle tank chassis.
-IMR-2: First version based on T-72 tank chassis.
-IMR-2M1: Simplified model without the mine-clearing system. Entered service in 1987. Based on T-72A tank chassis.
-IMR-2M2: Improved version that is better suited for operations in dangerous situations, for example in contaminated areas. It entered service in 1990 and has a modified crane arm with bucket instead off the pincers.
-Klin-1: Remote controlled IMR-2
-IMR-3M: Obstacle clearing vehicle based on the T-90 main battle tank chassis.
 
Technical Data
Armament
A 12.7 mm NSVT machine is mounted on the crew operator/commander cabin, for the self-protection of the vehicle.
Protection
The IMR-2MA 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. A big operator cabin is mounted to the centre of the hull in place of the standard combat turret.
Propulsion
The IMR-2MA is motorized with a four-stroke multi-fuel liquid-cooled diesel engineV-84Ms developing 840 hp. The IMR-2MA can run at a maximum road speed of 60 km/h with a maximum range of 500 km. The IMR-2MA uses the same torsion bar suspension as the main battle tank T-72, which consists of six road wheels for each side 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 road wheel stations.
Accessories
IMR-2MA 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.
The IMR-2MA is equipped at the front of the hull with a bulldozer blade. A telescopic arm with a universal working tool or gripper is mounted at the rear of the operator armour cabin. When not required, the blade is folded upwards. Stone barriers can be cleared at the rate of 280 to 350 metres an hour while trenches and tree barriers can be filled in at the rate of 350 to 400 m/h. A treadway plow sweep designated KMT-R3 with an electromagnetic attachment is fitted at the front of the chassis.
