The TOS-1A is Russian-made Heavy flamethrower system which is designed for fire support of infantry and tanks, defeating enemy personnel at unconcealed environment and under the shelter in various kinds of offensive and defensive combat action, and also for incapacitation of light armored transport and vehicles.
The armament of the TOS-1A consists of a block launcher with 24 guide pipes of 220 mm calibre with 3,725 m length for launching unguided missile.
The TMM-6 is a Russian-made vehicle launched bridge system. A 17 m folded scissor bridge is carried at the rear of a MZKT-7930 8x8 truck chassis.
The IMR-3 series of combat engineer vehicles is based on the chassis of the T-90 MBT.
