The IMR-2 is a combat engineering vehicle that was developed by the Soviet Union in the 1980s and is still used by Russia today. The acronym IMR stands for Inzhenernaya Mashina Razgrazhdeniya, which means “Clearing Engineering Vehicle” in English. The IMR-2 is designed to clear obstacles and create routes for other vehicles in the battlefield. It is based on the chassis of the T-72 main battle tank, and has a rotating crane arm with pincers and a bulldozer blade on the front. The IMR-2 can also carry out mine-clearing operations with a special system mounted on the crane arm. The IMR-2 has a crew of two and is armed with a 12.7 mm machine gun for self-defense. The IMR-2 is powered by a V-84MS diesel engine that gives it a maximum speed of 50 km/h and a range of 500 km. The IMR-2 has participated in several conflicts, such as the Soviet-Afghan War, the Chechen Wars, and the Syrian Civil War.
