   The REM-KS is a Russian repair and recovery vehicle, based on the BAZ-6910 8x8 chassis. Russians consider it as a medium repair and recovery vehicle. It was specially designed to provide maintenance service and various repairs in field conditions for BAZ high mobility tactical vehicles. It is worth noting that Russian armed forces operate a number of these vehicles, including BAZ 6306 8x8 artillery tractors, BAZ-6402 6x6 tractor trucks, and some other. The REM-KS can also support other Russian armed forces trucks, such as Ural, KamAZ and so on, even though Russian armed forces have a lighter REM-KL repair and recovery vehicle, to support these trucks. This machine can also recover damaged, immobilized, swamped, stuck, or overturned vehicles and tow them to maintenance units. First prototype of this vehicle appeared in around 2008. It was first publicly revealed in 2010.

   The REM-KS is fitted with a crane, recovery winch, towing device, workshop with various tools. Also it has a cargo platform at the rear and can transport various loads, such as spare engine or wheels.

   The crane has a 8 400 kg lifting capacity. It can lift 2 200 kg at a maximum reach of 6.4 m. The crane can lift loads up to a maximum height of 10.9 m.

   Vehicle is fitted with rigid hitches and can tow vehicles with a maximum weight of 38 000 kg. Damaged and uncontrolled vehicles are towed in suspended position. Off-road the REM-KS can tow vehicles in semi-lifted position with a maximum weight of 30 000 kg. On hard surface roads capacity increases to 38 000 kg.

   It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare the REM-KS for vehicle recovery and about 12 minutes to prepare for suspended towing.

   Cab of this vehicle accommodates the crew of 3. There are seats for 3 additional passengers, that can be transformed into a sleeper berth. So the REM-KS can carry the crew of another vehicle. The cab can be fitted with add-on armor kit, that provides protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. There is a roof hatch for firing and emergency exit. A 7.62-mm machine gun can be mounted on the roof for self-defense.

   This repair and recovery vehicle is operated by a crew of 3, including commander, driver and handler.

   This machine is powered by a 17-liter YaMZ-8492.10-033 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 470 hp. Engine is located behind the cab. It allowed to reduce height of the vehicle and prevent engine and cooling system from damage and blockage with mud. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system.
