Russia: Uran-6 robot to be mounted on new KAMAZ transportation platform


The Uran-6 robotized system will be mounted on a new 8x8 KaMAZ chassis equipped with a special multi-lifting platform, the press service of the Russian Ground Troops said. "The platform design cuts significantly the time required to prepare the Uran-6 for operation. From now on, the Uran-6 will be mounted on a special platform. A special hydraulic drive will be used to remove it from the undercarriage and put it back in place. The whole operation takes no more than three minutes," it said.
