The Omsk Transport Engineering Plant commissioned the Ministry of Defense to upgrade its TOS-1A heavy flame-thrower systems. The changes affected both the appearance and the internal equipment of combat vehicles. The first batch of upgraded TOC-1А will be sent to the customer by the end of the month- said in a statement.
The press service clarified that the flamethrower itself received a new launcher, and the transport-loading vehicle of the complex received a crane installation. Experienced overhaul of TOC-1A "Omsktransmash" performed last year and as a result received permission from the Ministry of Defense to overhaul military vehicles.
