Myanmar army received a batch of modernized BRDM-2MS

Myanmar’s Armed Forces received a batch of Russian modernized armored reconnaissance and patrol vehicles BRDM-2MS. This was reported in the social networks of Myanmar.


According to publications, the equipment entered the country at the beginning of February this year, and it will be publicly presented only at the military parade in honor of Myanmar's Armed Forces Day, which will be held on May 27. In total, the Myanmar military received 33 BRDM-2MS, of which three were commander-made vehicles.

The upgraded version of the BRDM-2MS differs from its original version in the absence of additional wheels and installed additional armor protection, which is clearly visible in the photographs of the vehicles. According to reports, 20 armor plates with a thickness of 6 mm are placed over the hull area, thereby increasing the crew’s protection against damage by 7,62 mm and 12,7 mm and 14,5 mm caliber bullets in the frontal projection.

In addition, the BRDM-2MS received anti-shatter flooring, a new 150-horsepower diesel engine, a new fire control system and stabilizers for sighting devices. New detection and aiming tools can pinpoint targets at distances of up to 5 meters during the day and up to 000 meters at night. Special television equipment, consisting of 3 cameras, allows you to control the situation around the car.

As the main armament, a 14,5 mm KPVT machine gun and a twin 7,62 mm PKTM were installed.

The speed of the BRDM-2MS is 50 km / h on rough terrain and up to 100 km / h on the highway. Crew 5 people.

      I thought that the BRDM-2MS is Serbian and not Russian modernization.

          My mistake - now I understand that this was the modernization of Russia for Serbia.

    They will have three companies of such vehicles. With the corresponding troop composition --- evil dogs of war, tamers of the jungle. one such car can, in their natural conditions, block one pathway. And if there are three paths, and if 30 ..?
    P.S. At least hinted in the article what is the benefit of modernization and transfer / from the availability / of such a kit for us.

      It remains only to attach to these companies on a tank or motorized rifle regiment, so that everything is as it should)))

      ... one such car can, in their natural conditions, block one pathway.

      Modern barmels really like to put something like ZU-23-2 on their “carts”. When meeting with such an aggregate (or the like), the colander will remain from the BRDM.

        Mostly Chinese DShKM are installed, they are 5 times cheaper to operate and easier to maintain and transport yes
        You can’t put a ZU-23-2 on Toyota, it will turn over, but DShKM can easily yes

        The "armor" is decent, the engine is "doubled" ... The center of gravity has become lower. Well, yes, you can overturn, especially in a ditch. So this is any car you can ...

    Somehow I looked at the test of this BRDM, so there is a peasant, of a very solid build, with a visible effort, the steering wheel rotated, and with the gears the trouble.
    Will the local carrier be enough for this unit)))

    There is no shortage of drinking water in the Crimea!
    There is a lack of irrigation in the Northern Crimea yes
    In Crimea, they are switching over to greenhouses and drip irrigation everywhere, especially Evpatoria, Dzhankoy, Feodosiya!
