NPP Rubin, a division of the ROSEL Concern, has unveiled the MP-D and MRU-D air-droppable amphibious command-and-control (C2) vehicles, which form part of the Barnaul-T air automated air defence C2 system.

The vehicles are intended for Russia's Airborne Forces (VDV), and are based on the BTR-MDM 'Rakushka' armoured personnel carrier (APC) chassis. They were revealed at the Army 2019 defence and security exhibition, held in Kubinka, outside of Moscow, in June.

The MRU-D is referred to as the "intelligence and control module", and it is provided with a radar said to be capable of detecting targets at a maximum range of 40 km, and capable of simultaneously tracking up to 100 different targets, with an automatic refresh rate of 1-12 seconds, according to a factsheet displayed with the vehicle. It is manned by a driver, commander, and two crew to control the radar and C2 equipment, with the control stations housed in the crew compartment.

The MRU-D is primarily used to locate and track low-altitude aerial targets such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), helicopters, and ground attack aircraft. The MRU-D then processes and transmits this information to local air-defence assets. It is capable of continuously operating on internal power sources for 72 hours, and has a maximum set up time of five minutes from road march to combat readiness configuration, the factsheet said.

The MP-D is referred to as the "planning module" and it is provided with a pyramid-shaped radar that is said to be capable of detecting targets at a maximum range of 150 km, and capable of simultaneously tracking up to 100 different targets, with an automatic refresh rate of 1-12 seconds, according to the factsheet. It is manned by a driver, commander, and four crew to control the radar and C2 equipment, with the control stations housed in the crew compartment.
