    Again not a particularly great image I am afraid.

    Is this BTR 60/70/80? OR could it possibly be a BTR-3?

    Any assistance again much appreciated as don't have access to Jane's at moment.

  2. I'd go with the 80, definitely not 60/90. Also the door between wheels 2-3 is that of the 80 as far as I can tell.
  3. 80A, with that turret.

    Edited cos I typed 82A for some reason!

    There is an 82A though, which is a very new upgrade version. Could it be this upgrade perhaps?
  6. I discounted it because it is so new, also, some of the 82As are upgraded 80As, just to add confusion!
  7. Chinese WMZ-551B/ Type 92
  8. Where ever you are they seem to be maxing out one of these;

    Government cuts - they've fired all the expensive experts now they just get a grad trainee to post the pictures on arrse. The one doing aircraft uses the plane spotter thread.

  13. BTR-90 with Berezhok turret
  14. Don't think so, the turret you mention is more of a "frying pan" with distinct (Coronet?) ATGMs on the right. BTR-90 doesn't have a box below the exhaust either.
