Ukraine’s state run Ukroboronprom manufactured armored recovery and a repair vehicle (BREM) “Atlet” has entered serial production.

The armored recovery and repair vehicle was designed by Kharkiv-Morozov Design Bureau specialists to conduct evacuation operations and repair works in the field conditions, the company said in a statement last Thursday.

"Atlet" is equipped with a crane unit with a carrying capacity of up to 25 tons, allowing replacing the main nodes and components of the tank, including the turret and the engine. For evacuation purposes, “Atlet” is equipped with a winch: maximum gravity load is up to 250 kN – enough to take out the main battle tank. Special equipment allows “Atlet” to tow combat equipment with towing speed of up to 25 km / h.

A 1,000 HP engine allows speeding 46 tons "Atlet" up to 70 km / h. In addition, BREM can carry up to 1.5 tons load. It is equipped with a welding machine and other equipment, allowing carrying a range of works on restoring combat capability of armored vehicles in the field conditions.

This combat vehicle will considerably enhance technical capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, ensuring a proper level of combat readiness of the tank units. In addition, BREM "Atlet" has a large export potential that will allow loading Kharkiv-Morozov Design Bureau production capacity, after the State Defense Order is fulfilled.
