Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces are expected to receive new remotely operated combat vehicles and other advanced engineering armaments for improving manoeuvrability and survivability of mobile-based combat missile systems, in two years.

The SMF formations will receive about 20 Listva remote mine clearing vehicles, and about 50 engineering support & concealment vehicles by 2020, Moscow’s defense ministry said Monday.
