Twenty state-of-the-art armored recovery vehicles have entered into service with Russia’s Eastern Military District (EMD) for field repairs of weapons and equipment, the EMD spokesman said Wednesday.

The EMD spokesman noted that crews were undergoing preparations to operate the recovery vehicles.

The REM-KL is designed on the basis of the Ural-532362 heavy-duty off-road army service truck. The vehicle is mounted with an IM-95 crane with the maximum load of 3 metric tonnes and an electric generator for welding jobs.

Its main advantages over predecessors include high maneuverability and the equipment available to perform more complex repairs on the ground.
