Belarusian company "Minoton Service" specializing in the design, development and production of combat vehicles, track-based, founded in 1991, the company is engaged in supplying military equipment to its main customers — the military departments of the Russian Federation and Belarus. In addition, "Minoton-Service" — is now the only Belarusian company that conducts service and repair of equipment in the track based on the request of the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation.
2003. At the international exhibition «IDEX», held in the United Arab Emirates, presented their products at around 825 companies and companies from around the world. There also was presented at the Belarusian machine tracked chassis — TGM ST. The car was built in incredibly short period. From the idea of the creation of a similar machine to implement it in a metal handy designers about 6 months. This was the first official demonstration of THMs ST. Represented the car itself CEO "Minotor Service" V.Grebenschikov, he spent a demo ride. In 2005, TGM ST was presented at the «IDEX», passing also in the UAE.
Fascinating option TGM ST was presented "Minotor-Service" in 2009 at the 5th international exhibition «Milex-2009" held in the capital of Belarus, Minsk town. It was represented by its production of 8-NIL — 145 models of equipment and weapons. Current modification TGM GP — a typical outdoor multi-seat and all-terrain tracked "convertible". Is noteworthy that the interior of the car is made of leather, which gave the car an incredible feature. According to the company-producer, THMs ST can be performed in different ways, to have weapons or defense, armor or overcharge permeability.
2011. In the past year, the Belarusian exhibition «MILEX-2011" Belarus tractor TGM ST labeled "Mosquito" took an active part in an exhibition of military-technical performance. In the performance of military personnel participated fifth separate brigade of special forces Armed Forces of Belarus. Scenario presentation:
— during the alleged military conflict opponent knocks plane "our" forces;
— pilot catapulted and makes a touchdown on the ground of the enemy;
— pilot "gets" in captivity;

The enemy came to capture the pilot on the standard "UAZ", scouts used by the traffic tracked vehicle TGM 3T "Mosquito". Performances take place on a small demonstration site, and TGM 3T was able to show its rapidity, and cross-country mobility.
All-terrain transport vehicle TGM 3T take unchanging role at international exhibition of arms and military exercises of Belarus. But for now, similar terrain did not take the armament any army in the world. At the current time the designers enterprises continue to develop all-terrain vehicle, and brand new machine will have the properties of TGM ST and will be built on a brand new principle to the introduction of new technologies and solutions.
The arrangement and design of the Belarusian-terrain vehicle
TGM ST is equipped with a diesel engine, automatic transmission, engine rotation hydrostatic type that achieve high speed and maneuverability exaggerated features. In addition to the driver jeep can fit five soldiers in full gear. When placed in a jeep, passengers will be able to control their environment through 360 degrees. Light weight and density to allow rover to overcome all the water hazards on the course of the movement using the fast track in the water. A feature (on request) to produce ATVs to established water-jet (or propellers). Assembling TGM GP — even rassredotachivanie units all over the car. It is a distinctive feature of the Belarusian and personal all-terrain vehicle that can achieve good weight distribution. The power plant is placed in the central part of the housing. They installed engine and automatic transmission. In the front part of the body is set rotating mechanism hydrostatic type. The cooling system is distributed in the rear of the case on the sides of the car. We can manufacture a variety of combat vehicles mounted weapons. It has been successfully tested following the introduction of weapons for use in different divisions of the armed forces:
— automatic grenade launcher such as "K-17" 30 mm caliber;
