The Interspecies Regional Training Center of the Strategic Missile Forces (Pskov Region) trained highly qualified graduates for the crews of the Foliage remote mine clearance vehicle.

In total, about 1,000 military engineering specialists completed their training at the training center. Among them there are also representatives of new specialties introduced in connection with the renewal of weapons and military equipment, namely: operators of technical means of security alarms and specialists in the operation and maintenance of engineering support and camouflage vehicles.

The training of cadets – future sappers and operators – took place both on real machines at the autodrome and on modern training systems that completely imitate the actions of crews and equipment.

Modern cabins of training complexes for crews of MDR “Foliage” practically do not differ from the real ones. The road or combat situation is projected on the screens. The cab is located on telescopic supports that roll, lower and extend depending on the situation. Inside, the upper dashboard repeats the real one, and instead of the side ones, there are monitors that reflect the technical characteristics and transmit the image from the rear-view camera. Everything happens faster on a computer than in reality, but the main thing is not the time spent, but the correct sequence of actions.

MDR “Foliage” is intended for the detection of mine-explosive devices (IDE) with metal elements and the destruction of engineering ammunition and improvised explosive devices that contain electronic components. The detection of IDLs is carried out using an induction wide-coverage search module. Demining of mine explosive devices with electronic components is provided by electromagnetic radiation. Previously, this technology was not used to eliminate explosive devices at a distance.

Electronics “Foliage” can detect mines and land mines at a distance of up to 100 meters.

The vehicle was created specifically for the Strategic Missile Forces and proved its effectiveness during command and staff exercises with the Novosibirsk and Tagil missile formations equipped with the Yars PGRK.

Graduates of the training center will be delivered to formations and military units for further service by a special military echelon.
