told in the military.

It is noted that the machine will allow "to significantly increase the capabilities of the units of engineering troops in the construction of temporary and permanent fortifications."

It is intended “for drilling wells in rocks, in frozen and non-frozen soils, for drilling and blasting operations during the fortification equipment of troop positions,” the press service explained.

The crew of the car - 2 man.

“The installation provides auger and rotary percussion drilling in the horizontal plane up to 0 degrees and in the vertical plane up to 170 degrees. A feature of the installation is the sector of application of the working tool, which is not less than 270 degrees without moving the car. The depth of drilling with augers with a diameter of 180 mm in frozen and non-frozen soils is 6 meters, with augers with a diameter of 300 mm - 4 meter. The depth of drilling holes and boreholes with a diameter of 40 and 80 mm in rock is 2,8 meters, ”- said in the department.
