Designed by Tula-based company Splav, the system consists of a combat vehicle, a transport-loading vehicle, and transport-launch containers with ammunition that can be equipped with various types of mines, then company CEO Vladimir Lepin told Interfax news agency in June 2016. The combat vehicle and transport-loading vehicle are based on the 8×8 Kamaz truck chassis, according to Lepin. Both vehicles have armoured cabins with filter ventilation systems and air conditioners.
