Soviet Engineer Equipment.

The GMZ tracked minelayer is based on the chassis of the SA-4 GANEF surface-to-air missile system. The driver is seated at the front of the vehicle on the left side with the engine to his right. This leaves the rear of the vehicle clear for the mounting of the minelaying equipment and the storage of mines. Like the latter systems, the GMZ can lay the mines on the surface or bury them. Infrared vision equipment enables the GMZ to carry out minelaying operations during periods of limited visibility.
