Assembled and partially localized in Ukraine: the MV-4 light demining vehicle was tested at the training ground

На полігоні випробували легку машину розмінування DOK-ING MV-4, зібрану і частково локалізовану в Україні

The DOK-ING MV-4 light demining vehicle, assembled and partially localised in Ukraine, was tested at a training ground. For the first time, the tests were conducted in accordance with the pilot project developed by the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine and approved by the Government regarding the mandatory certification of mechanized demining equipment (Resolution No. 271).

The MV-4 was tested on three types of soil (sand, gravel, black soil), in areas with dense vegetation, and it also underwent survivability tests - a series of explosions of about 600 grams of TNT equivalent. The tests will be followed by a certification procedure.

The MV-4 demining vehicle is being assembled by the Ukrainian company A3tech, which has been cooperating with the Croatian manufacturer DOK-ING since 2020. The share of localization in the vehicle undergoing testing was 15%. Ukrainian specialists manufactured the working shaft and elements of the machine's working body. By the end of the year, manufacturers plan to increase the localization level to 25-30%.

«The localization and scaling up of production will not only allow us to manufacture, service and promptly repair DOK-ING vehicles in Ukraine, but also create additional jobs. And this is both the development of our economy and the increase in opportunities for humanitarian demining. In addition, it is also a signal to foreign investors that projects can be implemented in Ukraine despite the war waged by Russia against us», said Yuliia Svyrydenko, First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Economy.

For reference:

The MV-4 is a light robotic vehicle for mine clearance and disposal of explosive objects. Due to its low profile and strong construction, it is resistant to detonations of anti-personnel mines and unexploded ordnance. The MV-4 can withstand the explosion of an anti-tank mine. In an hour, the machine can demine an area of up to 1,500 m2. It is controlled by a remote control, the range of which is up to 1500 meters. In total, there are 300 MV-4 systems in operation in the world, and in Ukraine, specialists of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine work on them.
