    Strange ...
    And why not the airborne RXM-5, which seemed to be unified in terms of equipment with the RXM-6?

    It would probably be more correct to head the DSB and not the Airborne Forces received a new chemical intelligence machine. Nevertheless, in spite of all its advantages, the BTR-80 and all its relatives are not landing vehicles, only in a landing way.
    But of course, they did not become worse from this.
