The UBIM universal combat engineer vehicle is designed to ensure advancement of troops and perform engineering work under enemy fire, even over radioactively contaminated terrain.

This system can replace a whole set of engineer materiel, including armoured engineer vehicles, tracklayers, armoured recovery vehicles and mine clearing vehicles.

The UBIM fulfills the following missions:

breaking ways in rock roadblocks and tree entanglements over median terrains and in forested and mountainous areas;
filling up ditches, craters, gullies and other obstacles;
arranging approaches on river and ravine banks with a height of up to 6 m;
digging up soil and loading construction materials into containers and vehicles;
tree felling, stump extraction during passage clearing operations in the bush and undergrowth;
paving operations on rough terrains;
autonomous negotiating of reactive obstacles with non-contact magnetic fuzes;
delivering fire against surface and air targets;
removing damaged and stuck vehicles and materiel.

The UBIM is fitted with an assortment of organic equipment, most notably a utility dozer blade and a multi-purpose arm with a powerful full-circle claw-type bucket.

Moreover, the vehicle is equipped with an electric witch of 25 tf pulling force with a rope of 100 m length and a hydraulic jackhammer that is used for ripping rocky grounds and destruction of stone, reinforced concrete and concrete constructions.
