      I won’t say that it doesn’t swim,
      but that does not sink - definitely ....

      For forces, he will. They will not really fight, but for representative purposes this is enough.

    Trying to understand why the UN loves winter camouflage in Africa so much?

      a good machine, albeit not excellent but good, unlike any of our and not our bridges, here the dimensions are limited by the rules of public roads, first of all, the width is limited to 2,5 m, it is shorter and more turning, in total all this allows you to use this APC on public roads in a dense stream of civilian vehicles.

        BTR on public roads in a dense stream of civil engineering.

        During the hostilities, and in a dense stream of civilian equipment, you are, however, an optimist, my friend. Machine for police actions against civilians.

    We had a similar BRDM-2 car (very similar to VAB 4X4). Maneuverable, passable, floating, convenient carrier for various light weapons such as ATGMs and MANPADS. But, unfortunately, they were attributed instead of modernization. Now there is either a long, not agile in the city of armored personnel carriers, or dubious patency and security of the Tiger.
