    Russia's northern fleet has received the first of its new all-terrain tracked vehicles, which are able to transport cargoes of up to 4,000 kg through off-road conditions, fresh snow and swamps.

    The Russian Arctic Fleet has taken delivery of the first of its new all-terrain snow vehicles, the Russian Ministry of Defense has announced, which are able to transport up to 16 people, or cargoes with technical equipment of up to 4,000 kg. 

    The TTM-4902PS-10 is comprised of two compartments, to the front and back of the vehicle. The front section, where the power module is located, can hold six people, while the back section can carry another ten people, or be transformed for use as a medical unit, command post, or sleeping area.
