Self-propelled Explosive Mine Clearing Vehicle SVO A1

It is a self-propelled mine-clearing system creating a pass through the minefields and mine-clearing at distance from 250 m to 530 m. Object is designed as an armoured tracked vehicle based on BMP-1 with the special superstructure system.

  • The mine clearing is being performed by the sequential firing and hitting 24 projectiles onto a minefield, creating a mine-clearing path 100 m long and 5 m wide
  • The mine-clearing projectile is special kind super-calibre fin stabilized ammunition, the design of which enables to achieve the high firing accuracy and provides energetically sufficient blast wave impulse to neutralize the anti-tank and anti-personal mines during explosion
  • Aiming of weapon is equipped by TKN-3B Combined IR Sight and done by means of a direct sight and FCS (fire control system). The elevation of the weapon is set up by a servomechanism and the traverse by the moving of the whole vehicle
  • The NPS is used for measuring the SVO position in the field during the move and measuring the current position of the weapon against the horizontal plane and north direction
