The MV-2 demining machine was created in "DOK-ING" d.o.o. - Zagreb. The machine is classified as a light machine with a flail as a woorking tool. The machine use caterpillars and has a system for remote control (no cabin).

HCR-CTRO d.o.o. tested the machine in the period from 20th to 27th August 2018 at the test site Cerovac. It was tested on three lanes (sand, gravel and topsoil) on vegetation clearance and on clearance of antipersonnel mines.


The MV-2 test plan and program was developed in line with the IMAS Test and Evaluation Protocol for machines 15044: 2009. Based on the test results, the MV-2 machine with a working tool flail can be used to perform mine action operations in accordance with the results obtained.
