   The REM-KL is a Russian repair and recovery vehicle. By Russian standards it is considered as "light". It was designed to provide maintenance service and various repairs in field conditions for Ural and KamAZ military trucks.  This vehicle can also support other trucks, that are used by the Russian armed forces. This machine can also recover damaged, immobilized, swamped, stuck, or overturned vehicles and tow them to maintenance units. The REM-KL has been adopted by the Russian armed forces. This vehicle is also available for civil customers.

   The REM-KL is based on Ural-5323 8x8 truck chassis. It is fitted with a hydraulic crane, recovery winch, towing device, workshop shelter with various tools. Also it has a cargo platform at the rear and can transport various loads and spare parts, such as spare engine or spare wheels. Vehicle itself has a payload capacity of 15 000 kg. The REM-KL can recover and tow vehicles with a maximum weight of 12 000 kg to 22 000 kg, depending on the towing type.

   For recovery operations the REM-KL uses a rear-mounted hydraulic winch with a traction force of 10.5 t. Maximum traction force is 20 t. Stabilizer jacks are lowered to the ground prior to winching operations.

   Vehicle is fitted with rigid and non-rigid hitches and can tow vehicles with a maximum weight of 12 000 kg. Damaged and uncontrolled vehicles are towed in suspended and semi-lifted position. Off-road in this position the REM-KL can transport vehicles with a maximum weight of 16 000 kg. On hard surface roads it can transport vehicles with a maximum weight of 22 000 kg.

   The hydraulic crane can lift 950 kg with a reach of 8.1 m. Maximum lift capacity is 2 830 kg at 3 m. Maximum lift height is 9.8 m.

   The REM-KL has a sleeper cab, that accommodates a crew of 3, including commander, driver and handler.

   It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare the vehicle for recovery operation. It takes another 12 minutes to prepare vehicle for suspended towing.

   The REM-KL is powered by a 15-liter YaMZ-238B turbocharged diesel engine, developing 300 hp. It is mated to an 8-speed manual transmission. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. It improves traveling performance over sand and snow. The REM-KL has some degree of cross-country mobility. Vehicle can operate in climatic conditions, ranging from -50C to +50C.
