In the engineering formation of the Southern Military District (SMD), stationed in the Rostov Region, a division was formed, equipped with sets of the ISDM “Agriculture” remote mining engineering system.

The engineering systems for remote mining of the ISDM “Agriculture” are similar to the multiple launch rocket systems in service with the artillery troops, therefore, the units of the engineering troops equipped with the latest complexes received artillery names.

The divisional set of ISDM “Agriculture” entered the engineering unit of the Southern Military District at the end of last year. At the moment, the combat coordination of these units has been completed and the divisions have begun working out tasks for their intended purpose as part of tactical groups. Specialists of the Southern Military District are simulating new ways of using obstacles as part of mobile detachments during exercises.

For the first time, the system was tested in the troops of the Southern Military District during the state tests at a special exercise of the engineering troops in August 2020, where the ISDM “Agriculture” was successfully used as part of the engineering and reconnaissance fire circuit.

In total, in 2021, more than 50 modern models of engineering equipment were put into service with formations and military units of the 8th, 49th and 58th combined arms armies, the Black Sea Fleet of the Southern Military District, stationed in the Rostov and Volgograd regions, the Krasnodar Territory, North Ossetia-Alania, Kabardino-Balkaria, Crimea and Sevastopol. Among the novelties of the demining installation UR-77 “Zmey Gorynych”, heavy mechanized bridges TMM-3M2, complex cleaning stations SKO-10K, engineering vehicles for barriers IMR-2, BAT-2 track-layers, PTS-2 floating conveyors, MTU-72 tank bridge layers, caterpillar minelayers GMZ, MDK-3 digging machines, truck cranes with a lifting capacity of 16 tons and 32 tons, excavators.

In addition, the engineering units and subdivisions of the Southern Military District contain modernized Uran-6 multifunctional robotic systems, special vehicles for mine clearance groups (SAGR), and mobile engineering reconnaissance complexes MICR.
