The vehicle is designed to be operated at ambient air temperatures ranging from -50C to +50C and relative humidity up to 100% at temperatur up to +25C. It is adapted for operation in regions located at altitudes of up to 3000 m above sea level and is capable of negotiating water obstacles at a speed of 5 Km/h (after preparation which takes less than 10 minutes).
