Railway troops of the Central Military District in the Urals and in Siberia received new self-propelled pontoons


Self-propelled pontoon (pusher) PST-1 is designed for towing ferries or individual sections of floating railway bridges, which are in service with railway troops. The pontoon provides transportation of hydraulic structures on water bodies with a wave height of up to 1,2 meters.
- said in a statement

It is noted that due to the powerful diesel engine, the mobility of new technology has increased significantly compared with the previous generation pontoons.

Railway troops perform the tasks of technical cover of the assigned objects, restoration, demining and blocking sections of railway transport infrastructure, as well as establishing crossings over water obstacles.

    But this is an important matter ... especially when you consider that the last theater in our country was European ... well, our rivers and roads need to be sorted out somehow.

      Ural Siberia is the backbone of Russia! Though looted and devastated in the 90s, it is quickly recovering .. THING! And most importantly, we are preparing not only to advance in the event of anything, but also to defend ourselves to death anywhere in Russia! (taught by bitter experiments in the Second World War)

    That’s how many years it has been in service, and most importantly, what suits our army. Precisely the technique is what is called for many years!
