US commandos have their own mobile modular workshops
US Special Operations Forces (US Special Operations Forces) have a fleet of portable field workshops where you can repair and even modify the equipment used. Their full name – mobile technological repair complexes – MTRC (Mobile Technology Repair Complexes).
They are equipped with autonomous power sources, tools, lathes, welding machines and even 3D printers. MTRC has already proven its effectiveness in local conflicts. So, for example, with their help it was possible to quickly create special medical objects from improvised materials.
According to the Internet edition of Defense One, the US Special Operations Command – SOCOM has thirteen MTRCs around the world. The complexes are very mobile and can move quickly in the war zone. Thanks to the modular design on the basis of special cargo containers, they can be put up as tents and extend from 2.5 to 7.3 meters. Each module is transported using a 5-ton truck or Chinook CH-47 helicopter.
MTRC consists of 4 modules:
- Basic module: communication facilities, electronics and CAD workstations;
- Tool module: lathe, welding machines, cutters and other special tools;
- Vehicle Repair Module;
- Power, power module: gas generators, solar panels, wind generators and batteries for storing electricity.
