Belarusian BTR-70MB1 observed in Yemen

According to the newspaper, these armored personnel carriers appeared in the conflict zone back in the fall of 2015, when the Sudanese contingent landed in the port of Aden. True, then they hit the camera lenses only in passing. Then the "seventies" were seen near the town of Maidi. In this area, the Hussite rebels managed to inflict significant losses on a large Sudanese formation.

Earlier, the press also reported on the Belarusian supply to the Sudan of the revised reconnaissance vehicles BRDM-2.

According to the information, the BTR-70MB1 was improved at the 140-m repair plant in the city of Borisov. As a result of the modernization, the running and protective characteristics of the machine were significantly improved.

Instead of two carburetor engines with a total power of 240 hp BTR received one diesel horsepower 260 hp As a result, the maximum speed of the armored vehicle increased to 92 km / h, despite the fact that its weight increased by 1,5 t. Also, the car was equipped with a more modern communication system and an updated (day / night) sight.

In Belarus itself, state tests of the upgraded machine were completed in November 2016. After that, the Ministry of Defense decided to conduct a serial modernization of the BTR-70.

            In Belarus, cars were modernized in November 2016 ...
            And immediately put in a conflict zone, where they were noticed already in the fall of 2015 ...
            Einstein was right. Time is relative

            it feels like takeoff is ...... it’s clear that no asphalt should be on it ..... but maybe it’s not the road?

            asphalt under beters

            And how many times a year do they have a temperature drop from +40 to -30? The correct answer is not at all. Temperature drops destroy even a good road. Add to the constant natural load the "golden" hands of the road workers and get our roads. Although, by the way, in recent years in the Volga region they began to make very good roads.

    The technique is affordable, the functionality is fulfilled .... and then the question of tactics, you can drown on anything, ditch anything!

    He is capitalism, he is only for the sake of money. You think that people kill people with your weapons and opponents of your people get gesheft through this, and then they will blow you and your children through it - profit is more important and stock growth.
    This applies to Russia.
