Engineering Tank from Kramatorsk is virtually invulnerable

Engineering Tank from Kramatorsk is virtually invulnerable

The militia in Kramatorsk adopted a well-armored engineering vehicle based on the T-72B. IMR-2M, as it is called, according to military experts, in the front hemisphere is virtually invulnerable to anti-tank weapons that are in service with the Ukrainian army. This is facilitated by multilayer armor and a powerful bulldozer blade. The machine is even able to withstand a direct hit by an armor-piercing projectile of the main Ukrainian tank T-64.


True, the side projection is not so well protected, but if you recall the Syrian experience, this “engineering tank” can be equipped with home-made onboard screens that will save you from anti-tank missiles and grenade launchers.



The biggest drawback - the car is not armed. However, if we recall the events in Transnistria, then there are lighter, equipped with homemade armor, BAT tractors-patrons, and rammed Moldovan airborne combat vehicles, literally throwing them out of the way.

In addition, WRI can be equipped with blocks for launching unguided rockets and even guides for firing direct fire with captured missiles from the BM-21 Grad, which the militia have in abundance.

As reported on the page of the manufacturer of this machine - PJSC "Novokramatorsk Machine Building Plant", IMR-2М is intended for paving roads over rough terrain and in the forest, device crossing over ravines, ditches and embankments, equipment for congresses and exits on the banks of rivers, clearing debris and snow .



The sealing of the machine protects the crew (2 man) from the effects of a polluted and contaminated atmosphere. The use of night vision devices and headlights with an infrared filter allows you to work at night in compliance with the requirements of blackout. Judging by the fact that the price of the product is negotiable, anyone could acquire the WRI.

But now this military machine was useful for the defense of the city in which it was produced.

    The network contains a description of the case when two ensigns while in such cars smoked one cigarette for two, and transmitted it using the manipulator without touching the cigarette with their hands.

      hi I am familiar with the excavator driver (excavator based on roofing fences of Lawn or KAMAZ, sorry I just don’t remember) so he opens and closes the karabok.

        It is quite possible that earlier on our sections there were even competitions of operators of walking excavators, where one of the tasks was to raise a matchbox with a bucket from the ground.

          A little off topic, but remembered:
          They argued like an American, a Frenchman and a Russian in which country tires are better.
          The Frenchman says:
          - We have the best condoms, they serve more than one generation ......
          American:
          - And we have suspenders so strong that one gentleman fell from a skyscraper, caught the suspenders on the antenna and did not break, here .....
          Russian scratched his head and says:
          - And I remember the bell ringer in galoshes from the bell tower fell ....
          Frenchman with American:
          - So what?
          - Well, the ringer is rattling, but the galoshes are whole ....

        the excavators had all these chips with the boxes, and the dragline itself closed the boxes — like in the vertical + horizontal position .. and note that this is not modern hydraulics where everything is connected tightly.

        Or you can drive up to an enemy armored personnel carrier, closing yourself from shots with a bulldozer bulletproof shield (if you need to strengthen it) and turn over enemy equipment and towers with a bucket. If, of course, there is enough power.

        Yeah, another "dill" laughing ... Only this horseradish will break when throwing, and a 200-300 liter "bottle" can be thrown at an adversary. A bucket can be used to remove towers from military equipment such as armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles.

A couple of "bassoons" for armor, some kind of MANPADS and a large one in addition, for example, removed from destroyed armored personnel carriers. Here you have almost BMPT. Of course, there will not be a unified weapon control, but this is already being experienced ...

        Engineering Tank from Kramatorsk is virtually invulnerable


        Strange: a real battle tank is vulnerable, but an IMR created on the basis of a tank is invulnerable. Brilliant, it’s enough to knock out a caterpillar and that’s it.
        P.S.Maybe the article is designed for amateurs?)))

        IMR-2 began to be written off from the troops of the USSR back in the late 80s. Because they were replaced by other cars. Already not on the basis of the tank, but on its chassis and more comfortable. In the 89th had a chance to ride.
        People here do not understand how IMR can be used. Yes, elementary. It is stupid to demolish the junta's checkpoints along with armored personnel carriers and BMDs. He is truly protected from their weapons. The sides and rear will be covered by the militia infantry. I remember the expression "gore you a mosquito" before. Now we can safely say - "butt their IMR"! laughing

      There is a line of military-engineering equipment for special purposes. Her - before a damn thing, everyone is imprisoned for their tasks.

      And the special staff and even we, the federals, have long been using the same IMR in the city and its suburbs - just an AMAZING and practically irreplaceable thing.
      They do not even need to hang weapons on them - the crew will be distracted from the main task of the obstacle. No need to fantasize nonsense, he needs weapons only for self-defense.

      It is a pity that there are few of them in the HMB staff of the current brigades (2pcs. In the platoon of obstacles), it is difficult to knock out for your needs ...

    It seems to me that if this krakozyabr imperceptibly crawls over to some kind of bester and gently captures the tower with a bucket and asks to give it away, then there will be no arguments for what this would not be done by the bether crew ...

    I imagine how this krakozyabr UNMISSIBLY creeps up to the bester))) suddenly jumps from a tree to a tank and insidiously grabs helicopters flying by

    Righteous Nightmare:
    After the march, they sat down on the edge of the forest with their comrades-in-arms to poop. Pooped. And then an iron claw protrudes from the bushes and makes "yum-yum".
    Waking up, poop until he went - suffers. I ordered my mother in Kiev packing the largest diapers. wassat

    They took it rather that the Germans would not get it, from a helicopter they gouge this thing in a minute.

        And the locator in the kit for MANPADS ...
        Fill all the windows of your car with black paint, leave only the viewing gap, remove the mirrors. Cut the speakers to the full, put on the headphones so that the music does not interfere, and at a speed of 50 km / h try to find a helicopter flying from behind at 3 km, then it sees you perfectly from above at 10 km.

    The site has just had a wonderful series of three articles "Universal fighter of engineer troops", devoted to the development and practical application of these machines. Read it!
