"The set is composed of four vehicles based on the three-axle Kamaz-53501 truck. Unlike the TMM-3M heavy mechanized bridge, the TMM-3M2 has a hydraulic winch for bridge assembly and disassembly instead of a motor one, which speeds up bridge section spanning, folding, lifting and lowering and reduces the time needed to erect the bridge," the press office said.

Compared to the TMM-3M based on the KrAZ chassis, the TMM-3M2 features reduced deployment time and higher mobility. It is equipped with a rear camera to monitor the deployment place. The set makes it possible to deploy bridges with a width of 40 meters for wheeled and tracked military hardware.
