"The number of mobile missile system camouflaging kits fielded to the Strategic Missile Force will increase by more than 15 times over 2013 - to 1,500. The Strategic Missile Force pays special attention to camouflaging in order to increase the survivability of its ground-mobile missile systems," the press release says.

In particular, the missile divisions operating the ground-mobile Topol have been annually receiving an increased number of camouflage kits of various models allowing various types of masking and camouflaging techniques depending on the season, weather, and position area. For this reason, the ground-mobile missile divisions will take delivery of more than 1,000 MKT-4L camouflage kits and over 500 MKT-2S ones in 2017.

The MKT-4L summer and MKT-2S winter kits are used for camouflaging combat vehicles and military facilities against enemy optical and radar surveillance and reconnaissance assets.
