notes"RKhM-6 "Povozka" – the latest version with state-of-the-art detection systems, including the PRKhDD-2B with a detection range of about 3 km. Furthermore, the RKhM-6 is equipped with an SN-RKhM inertial navigation system and a 14Ts834 satellite navigation system. In service since 2011. Deployed to Syria in November 2018. It is an advanced variant of the RKhM-4-01 CBRN vehicle. The 8×8 CBRN vehicle is designed to conduct chemical, radiological, biological, and nuclear reconnaissance missions for CBRN reconnaissance elements of the Russian Armed Forces. It can transmit reconnaissance data to reconnaissance devices and command control centers. The Russian Army RKhM-6 is an advanced Nuclear, Bacteriological, and Chemical (NBC) reconnaissance vehicle derived from the BTR-80 armored vehicle. The vehicle is provided with a satellite navigation system and can cover an area of four square miles. The crew can transmit the result of their analysis to remote command and control centers without leaving the vehicle. The RKhM-6 vehicle is expected to enter service with the Russian Army in early 2016."

value"The RKhM-6 is equipped with a more advanced NBC laboratory. The fully automated system is controlled by single personnel and enables the automatic detection of chemical and radioactive substances, with alarms ringing inside the vehicle if any such contamination is found. The sensors aboard the vehicle can detect any type of radioactive contamination from inside the vehicle, and the crew can test the samples from within the vehicle. The vehicle lacks special suits for dismounting troops in a radiation environment but carries three sets of MOPP suits and filters. The biological sensors on the vehicle can detect biological molecules such as viruses, while the chemical detection optical devices use the onboard computer for analysis. The vehicle can detect vapors and aerosols of toxic and hazardous substances in a contaminated environment of 10m² a minute. The vehicle runs at a speed of 20km/h-50km/h in accordance with the level and complexity of contamination. The RKhM-6 is equipped with battlefield management systems (BMS), and Perunit-V satellite navigation system based on GLONASS. The advanced meteorological suite provides coverage across 4km² of the area or accurate direction up to 6km. It measures wind speed and direction, air samples, weather conditions, rain, and snow."
