It is noted that “Foliage” is the first MDR development in Russia. The basic principle of operation is the destruction of the electronics of an explosive device.
For these purposes, the modernized “Foliage” uses a super high-frequency radiator, which actually puts the electronics of the explosive device in an inoperable state. As a result, the explosive device laid down by the enemy turns into a safe disc. There is also the possibility of remote explosion of explosive devices.
According to some reports, the upgraded “Foliage” increased the detection range of land mines and mines. Now it exceeds 100 m.
MDR is created specifically for the strategic rocket forces. The car goes ahead of the column of mobile ground-based missile systems (for example, Yarsov), providing comprehensive protection against detonation. At the same time, the protection against explosion is effective not only on the road itself or on the side of the road, but also a distance of tens of meters from the column’s route.
The mass of the MDR is about 18,5 t, the protection class of 5, the declared speed of movement during demining is from 15 km / h, it is possible to survey a sector with an angle of 45 degrees.
