The Russian Defense Ministry is set to develop next-generation unified engineer vehicles for the country’s armed forces. The new development and engineering project has been named “Gorets-O”, the Russian equivalent of the word “mountaineer”, Russia’s daily newspaper Izvestia reported on Thursday.

It is set to be a large tracked armored vehicle equipped with machine-guns, electronic countermeasure devices and a GLONASS navigation system.

he projected development cost of the vehicle is 350 million rubles ($6.84 million). The first test of the pre-production model is set for 2017; if it is successful the vehicle will then enter the field.

The two-member crew will include a commanding officer and machine driver; a separate compartment may seat at least two combat-engineers. The vehicle will be able to operate for 600 km without refueling and then work on site for at least three hours.

It will come to substitute Russia’s Soviet-era IMR-2, IMR-3 armored breaching vehicles and BAT-M and BAT-2 military bulldozers. It could be made on the Armata tank chassis.
