During the fighting in the Deir-ez-Zor area, during the crossing over the Euphrates, unusual BRDM-2, which are now considered one of the best, again came into the photo lenses, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


One of the best modernization options for the BRDM-2 has been spotted in the Deir ez-Zor area.


The origin of these machines in the expert environment continues to be debated. Some experts believe that this is a Syrian revision. Others are confident that the BRDM-2 are of Russian origin.

The first BRDM-2 were seen about a year ago, during the battles in Aleppo. Machines received protection from cumulative ammunition in the form of protective grids. They installed 12,7-mm NSVT machine guns and automatic grenade launchers AGS-17. According to some reports, fire gasoline engines were replaced by diesel ones.

As a military expert, Yuri Lyamin, armored vehicles, apparently belonged to the pro-government detachment "Liva al-Quds." This unit was created by Palestinians who lived in refugee camps in the Aleppo area.



"Liva al-Quds", which turned into quite a noticeable force, was deficient in its own heavy armored vehicles. Perhaps this led them to finalize the BRDM-2. It should be noted that these machines were not popular among the Syrian military and previously were in service with virtually only units of the Interior Ministry. They were also kept in military schools in southwest Aleppo. From there, the technique and could get to the Palestinians, said Lyamin.

Later, options appeared on which twin-mounted 23-mm ZU-23-2 units were installed remotely controlled with video cameras. Video cameras were also mounted on the car cases. This version has received the most appreciation. Experts pointed to a great similarity with Iranian developments.



However, relatively recently, during the fighting on such upgraded BRDM-2, fighters were seen wearing Russian bulletproof vests and helmets. Therefore, some of the experts began to reject the original version of their origin. There were suggestions that the cars were finalized by Russian fighters. But it is difficult to agree with this.

“We have more modern Tigers, Lynxes, Shots and BTR-82, finally. Spending time and energy on the old "mess" ... there is little rational. In addition, the Syrians had already demonstrated their ability to perfect Tanks, BMP and self-propelled guns, ”says the author of the material Roman Katkov.



Returning to the mentioned crossing over the Euphrates, where the modernized BRDM-2 was captured, it can be noted that only Syrians were in the carriage. “On the anti-cumulative grilles, sand-colored bullet-proof vests made in Russia are clearly visible. Maybe everything is much simpler: the Syrians were only handed over personal protective equipment to personnel? Therefore, they were taken for the Russians, ”the author notes.

    Consider all the latest models of equipment tested in real combat conditions (in general for operations in the ATS). Well done.
    On the "rake" of the Soviet Union (Afghanistan and other hot spots of the time) did not step only.

      Yeah, only for the third year now we have been trying and trying everything. The rake is essentially the same, only in a new wrapper. In Afghanistan, even though the land border was more or less capable, this is not the case here.

    I do not quite agree with the assessment. The BRDM was taught how to swim, it was melted out with the help of a ferry, and it means that it is deprived of part of its operational maneuverability ... So, the question is clearly debatable.

        In Syrian conditions, the buoyancy of the BRDM-2 seems to be a dubious advantage, although there are water barriers there. request

    unusual BRDM-2, the modernization of which is now considered one of top

      The Ukrainians shushpanzery not even close with this. It is also necessary to take into account the massive modernization and the fact that the Syrians do not call these forced measures prodigies that have no analogues.

    With the thickness of the side armor of the BRDM-2 at 7mm, the effectiveness of the anti-commutative lattice is very doubtful. Rather, the psychological effect ...

    Whatever the BRDMs, the Syrians, the Palestinians fellows, seem to have learned to fight.

    Wrong keyboard, sorry. Parade and war. You know the anti-material rifle will put this machine sideways in a real war. This is the lowest that can be applied on the battlefield)))

    If not for Vesnik, who would tell us about armored vehicles? S. K, Vesnik should be encouraged.
    But seriously, then: 1) "messes" were delivered to many countries and everywhere local "kulibins" invent something. 2) Russian-made "armor plates" were seen by Russians. Do not tell my footcloths! During the Arobo-Israeli war, the Tsakhalovtsy repulsed the attacks of the “tigers” and “Josephs” (Israeli comrades will confirm) and on this basis conclude: the Katukov guards and the Adolf Hitler division work together? And the ultrasound machines were in the guard of the Iranian Shah, that he was guarded by the Israelis?

    Do you want every year new items at the Parade? Even in the days of the Union, this was not so.
    About 5 years or more on Red Square they dragged a model of Dal rockets (?) Not accepted for service. I read about this with Kisunko, one of the creators of the country's anti-aircraft shield

      hi This shows that Smolensk is covered from all sides, therefore, the HF in the Smolensk region there is no need to rearm. While the parade shows the same thing, Smolensk can sleep peacefully! smile

        We all remember that for Poles-French-Germans, Smolensk is the key to Moscow! Therefore, the defense of Smolensk is an important issue! smile I apologize in advance to the Smolensk if I offended anyone repeat love

    This version has been praised the most. Experts pointed to a great similarity with Iranian developments.

    Most likely the Iranian one is, they have long been installing remotely controlled ZU 23X2 when modernizing the old BTR-60.

      I wonder why Irie is trying so hard over trash? Already modern tanks and infantry fighting vehicles are vulnerable now. Future wars I think depend on UAVs, REB systems, remote RSZOs, and, of course, on good contractors))))

    She has more than 500 BTR-60s and she needs to do something new with them. She cannot buy because of sanctions she is not yet able to create something modern herself.
