The Airborne Forces will test the latest reconnaissance vehicle РХМ-5М based on the BTR-MDM Rakushka

6
For the units of the RCB of the Airborne Forces in 2017, the machine for radiation chemical and biological reconnaissance and protection (РХМ-5М) was put into service. At present, the first sample of PXM-5M has entered the Tula Connection of the Airborne Forces under control. The crew of the car consists of four people, according to the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation


The Airborne Forces will test the latest reconnaissance vehicle РХМ-5М based on the BTR-MDM Rakushka


Serial production of PXM-5M and delivery to the troops are scheduled for the beginning of 2018.

It is noted that this sample was created on the unified base chassis of the BTR-MDM Rakushka, which allows radiation chemical and biological reconnaissance of the area in the Airborne Forces combat formations. The PXM-5М is capable of remotely detecting the presence of toxic substances in the air, conducting radiation chemical and biological reconnaissance of the routes of troops from their areas of concentration, followed by applying the situation on an electronic map of the area and ensuring the transfer of intelligence data to an automated troop control system.

The new model is equipped with a modern automatic weather kit, capable of determining wind speed, its direction, air and soil temperature, and real-time atmospheric pressure with subsequent output of data to the automated workplace of the vehicle commander.

    What does "RXM-5M capable of remotely detecting the presence of toxic substances in the air"? Does it send drones there, or what? belay

    There are many ways to determine remotely - for example, by spectral analysis ... astronomers also determine how the composition of a percentage of the planets is. So in this case, with a certain concentration of volatile substances in the air, they can be determined with some error.

      Spectral analysis, from school, when studying the atoms and molecules of the simplest elements from the table. Mendeleev. And OM is different, however.

    But this does not mean that this particular method is implemented on this technique (military secret))))))

    Just back in about 1999, a remote detection system was being tested (“Dal” was like a name). There was a laser installation principle - the reflected radiation was processed and the parameters were determined to determine whether this area was infected or not.

    The previous RXM-5 sample was made in a total of 6 pieces. This suggests that such machines are not particularly needed in the Airborne Forces. In the place of Western experts, based on the data on the appearance of such machines in the RF Airborne Forces, I would conclude that the RF itself is preparing to conduct offensive operations with the use of RCB weapons.)
