At the exercises in the Sverdlovsk region for the special treatment of the Yars mobile ground missile complex (PGRK), the missilemen used the latest special equipment of the radiation, chemical and biological (RCB) protection troops – the UTM-80M universal heat engine.

During the march, the column of the PGRK “Yars” overcame a conditionally contaminated area. According to the introduction, the saboteurs used toxic substances on the distant approaches to the field positions.

Subdivisions of NBC protection on reconnaissance chemical vehicles RKhM-6 carried out sampling of air, soil, water and cordoned off the zone of conditional radioactive contamination, decontaminated the area
and roads.

After the equipment was withdrawn from the contaminated zone, the radiation, chemical, biological protection units carried out a full special treatment of the missile complex units, including the Yars autonomous launchers, using the latest samples of promising technology.

Subdivisions of the NBC protection of the Strategic Missile Forces used modern universal heat engines UTM-80M to carry out complete special processing of equipment. During the exercise, the RHB protection units of the Strategic Missile Forces in the Sverdlovsk Region carried out special processing of more than 100 pieces of equipment, including the Yars PGRK launchers.

The UTM-80M vehicle was developed in the interests of the Strategic Missile Forces and is intended for degassing, decontamination and disinfection of large objects, weapons and military equipment. The developed composition of the kit allows performing special processing with the movement of the operator’s platform over large-sized military equipment or along the object being processed.
