The 5P85SE is the launcher unit S-300 PMU2. The 5P85SE is an autonomous launcher vehicle. The more compact electronics package saw the removal of the large cabin used with the S-300PS/PMU 5P85S/SU TEL. The 5P85SE carries four missile silos (one missile by silo) mounted to the back side of the chassis. During launching the silos are drawn in vertical position, to the back side of the truck. The 5P85SE (5P85TE) launcher ensures the storage, transportation and launch of four 48N6E2 (48N6E) air defense missiles, kept in sealed canisters. The 5P85SE is based on an 8×8 chassis variant of MAZ- 7910, itself a derivative of the ByeloRussian MAZ-543/543M Uragan chassis series developed as the self propelled 9P117 TEL for the R-17/R-300 Elbrus / SS-1 Scud TBM.
