Trumpeter 1/35 Russian BMR3 Armored Mine Clearing Vehicle (New Tool)
In the early days of the “Afghan war”, the Soviets began developing “BMR” series of mine clearing vehicles. Type BMR-1 (Su-122) entered service in 1982, Type BMR-2 (T-54) in 1985, and Type BMR-3 in 1995. BMR-3 was based on T-72 tank chassis and fitted with KMT-7 mine roller and plow device. The drum type mine roller could clear two channels in AT minefields 800mm wide at a speed of 12 km per hour, in waters up to 1m deep with a flow of 2m/sec. The vehicle is equipped with 12.7mm anti-aircraft gun. BMR-3 was succeeded by Type BMR-3M (T-90) with ERA from 2000.
