The CHETRA is one of the world's finest all-terrain vehicles in terms of cross-country capabilities. The vehicle is especially designed to have high maneuverability and survivability, even in soils with low bearing capacity.

The CHETRA is able to carry loads of up to 4 tons and traverses swamp areas and permafrost. The vehicle is purposed for transportation of shifts of workers, geological survey troops, and repair teams and for other off-theroad transportation requirements. The CHETRA PM-140 is designed to operate in boreal climatic conditions within temperature range of +40°C to -40°C.

The TM-140 is the military version of the CHETRA all-terrain vehicle. In December 2015, during 5th Arctic - Today and Tomorrow International Forum, the Russian Defense Ministry has showed interest for the TM-140A arctic all-terrain vehicle (ATV).

The TM-140 is based on a tracked chassis with a crew cabin at the front and a cargo area at the rear. The cab’s seating capacity is seven passengers, including three sleeping bunks. The passenger module seats eight personnel or can be converted to have four full-fledged bunks.

The TM-140 can run at a maximum speed of 45 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 550 km. The vehicle is fully amphibious being propelled in the water by its tracks at a maximum speed of 5 km/h.
