The B10M2 armored bulldozer is showcased on the static display of the Russian Engineering Troops at the Army-2018 defense exhibition. The vehicle is fitted with armour offering protection of main components as the crew cabin, engine hood, and fuel tank. It offers protection for the driver against firing of small arms and artillery shell splinters. The protection of the B10M2S vehicle can be reinforced by applique bar-slat armor according to the threats.
The B10M2 is designed to perform road and excavation works in combat conditions. It has a metal blade at the front used to push large quantities of soil, sand, rubble, or other such material during construction or conversion work and a claw-like device (known as a ripper) at the rear to loosen densely compacted materials.
The B10M2S is equipped with large tracks offering excellent ground holding capability and mobility through very rough terrain. Wide tracks help distribute the bulldozer's weight over a large area to decrease ground pressure, thus preventing it from sinking in sandy or muddy ground.
The B10M2 armored bulldozer has a maximum weight of 22,800 kg. The vehicle is powered by a YaMZ-236 diesel engine with a power output of 190 hp. to provide a maximum speed of 11 km/h.
