The BREM-1 tank evacuator was created on the basis of the T-72 and was put into service in 1975 and is intended primarily for the evacuation of T-72, T-80 and T-90 tanks. To lift cargo, the BREM-1 is equipped with a swivel crane with a lifting capacity of up to 12 tons. The machine transports various equipment for repair, one of them is an ESA-1 electric welding machine. BREM-1 is armed for self-defense with a NSVT heavy machine gun located on a turret above the commander's hatch, and thermal smoke equipment is an additional means of protection. The 840-horsepower V-84MS engine allows the BREM-1 to reach speeds of up to 60 km / h on the highway. When towing a T-72 tank, the speed on a dirt road does not exceed 10-15 km/h. Currently, there is a modernized version of the BREM-1M, it is being built on the basis of the T-90 tank.

Serial production of the BM-30-D "Spokes" remote-controlled uninhabited combat module for the KamAZ-43269 "Shot" armored car has begun in Russia. The Spica combat module is equipped with a 30 mm 2A42 automatic cannon, a 7.62 mm PKTM machine gun, as well as an AG-30 automatic grenade launcher. The module has a modern sight with television and thermal imaging channels and a laser rangefinder. A lightweight and simplified version of this module without the AG-30 grenade launcher is also installed on the Typhoon Airborne armored car. The Spica combat module will also be installed on other Russian armored vehicles and armored personnel carriers.

The Terminator tank support combat vehicle is designed to operate as part of tank units in order to defeat anti-tank weapons and enemy manpower. The armament of the Terminator BMPT is two 30 mm 2A42 automatic cannons, a 7.62 mm tank machine gun, automatic grenade launchers AG-17D and ATGM Kornet. In terms of protection, the Terminator can be compared with the T-90 tank, and in some ways it surpasses it. For example, it is equipped with a dynamic protection system "Relict". The BMPT is protected from enemy anti-tank melee weapons within 360 degrees. The machine was put into service in 2018.
