The combat anti-sabotage vehicle BPDM Typhoon-M (index 15Ц56М) was created on the basis of the BTR-82 and is designed to protect mobile missile systems and subunits of the Strategic Missile Forces. Developers were NPO "Strela" and LLC "MIC". The first copy in 2013 year entered the Serpukhov branch of the Military Academy of the Strategic Missile Forces named after Peter the Great.
On May 21, in Serpukhov, practical training was held with the servicemen of the Strategic Missile Forces units to protect missile systems, conduct reconnaissance and combat sabotage and reconnaissance groups using an anti-sabotage machine. Worked out the actions of the calculation of BPDM on the exploration of terrain and objects in a positional area, the detection and determination of the coordinates of single targets and transport and the repelling of the DRG attack on the machine.
During the visit, I tried to photograph the car as thoroughly as possible, especially inside. Unfortunately, the UAV was on scheduled maintenance at the factory, so it was not possible to fully see all the capabilities of the machine.
