In 2022, the engineering and sapper units of the Central Military District (CMD) deployed in Bashkiria, the Tyumen Region and the Udmurt Republic will receive about 40 units of modern and modernized engineering weapons. This was reported to journalists by the head of the engineering troops of the Central Military District, Colonel Andrey Gandzyuk.

“This year we are planning to replenish the armament fleet of the engineering troops of the military district with almost 40 units of modern and modernized engineering weapons. Among them are sets of heavy mechanized bridges TMM-3M2, complex water treatment plants SKO-YUK, earthmoving and construction equipment based on the chassis of KamAZ vehicles,” Andrey Gadzyuk said.

Earlier it was reported that the engineering and sapper units of the Central Military District for the first time received a batch of new generation IMP-3 induction mine detectors.
