Engineering will be equipped with engineer-sapper units of the army.

“The BTR-80 is a combat wheeled amphibious vehicle designed for the rapid transfer of subunits to the location of the missions, their support from the standard armament and combat from the vehicle. The machine is armed with a large-caliber 14,5 mm KPVT machine gun and a PKT 7,62 mm machine gun paired with it, ”the release says.

It is also reported that “the armored personnel carrier has a system of protection against weapons mass destruction, modern powerful diesel engine with turbocharging and increased maneuverability due to the wheel formula 8X8 ".

Thanks to the use of tubeless tires, the car is capable of “continuing to move and perform a combat mission for a distance of at least 200 km, not only with bullet holes in the wheels, but also when undermining mines,” the press service added.

Universal engine heating system provides all-weather use of armored vehicles. It allows you to start the engine and operate the BTR in winter conditions throughout the Far East.

    Well done our! Putin has made efforts - that’s the result, I respect.
    Maybe there are some questions to him, but they are ridiculous, facing the threat of a takeover of our country.

      Well done then well done, but as if not to be late to reanimate our aircraft. Very cool wokurg porridge is brewed.

        At VO, all the news is getting better and more positive, even the supply of junk, which is older than the author, to the troops, is presented as the adoption of a 5th generation fighter squadron ...
        The first commenter is “peterka” for the speed of reaction and proper digestion.

    Excuse me, but I don’t understand something, in the photo, from the press center of the BBO BTR-82, or am I confusing something?

    The article described the BTR-80 as something new and unsurpassed, although the car is already in its fourth decade. Why not put at least the BTR-82 into the troops? There is even more powerful weapons.

      As I understand it, they are supplied to auxiliary troops (engineer-sapper), more powerful weapons are not needed there, I think they will post newer equipment to the shock units

        deliver to auxiliary troops (engineer-sapper)

        These are combat support troops, the units of which are often also advanced, under enemy fire.
        And these BTR-80s had to be sold for some time in some Honduras.

      BTR-82A is supplied as a replacement for BTR-80 in ZVO and YuVO, and the released BTR-80 is supplied in BBO.

        And here, apparently, there is not enough money. Syria eats a lot. Is it a joke to drive long-range bombers there every day?

          It is not connected in any way. As well as the money allocated to Crimea is not connected with roads and pensions in your region.

            This is all within the military budget, dear. You must understand that it is not rubber.

              There, even within the budget, financial flows do not intersect. In general, I think the news made a mistake and delivered the BTR-82A.

      What was removed from storage, then sent! It is curious, but before the 80s there were 60 or 70 armored personnel carriers? hi

    80 - means the 1980s - the year of adoption. A few thousand rust them in warehouses.

    It would be interesting to know how much their cars correspond to Siberian conditions in terms of their TTD and their living conditions. As far as I know, MT-LB was widely used there before. The conditions of Siberia and the Far East are large fluctuations in temperature, mud, lack of elementary roads and many, many other differences from European Russia.

    I thought they had already passed them for scrap ...
    Probably the same will be written in the RF Armed Forces update ....
    The first production BTR-80 left the factory floor on February 24.

    33 of the year, BTR joy is what, if only we would not be ashamed of this article ....

    I do not understand the tantrum of commentators. For engineering and engineering units BTR-80 as a transport is enough for the eyes.
