Don't know if it is, but fitting the Gatling, its ammo, turret, control electronics and all that crew gear plus four crew into that vehicle is going to be tough. It looks a bit like the LAV-AD

Is this a whif?

Most definitely a whif. 

IRL there is very little room inside the BTR-60PB.  Having had first hand experience with sitting inside of a BTR-60PB that was in my unit motor pool at Fort Lguy  ewis.  Very crowded and no room to do much of anything save sit and face the guy sitting across from you. 

Plus, the M163 VADS turret is much more than what you see on top of the vehicle.  There is much underneath the turret that is not seen such as the very large ammunition drum that feeds the weapon.  This is suspended beneath the turret and rotates with it. 

Great little diorama the guy has going there but definitely a whif.  ;)

Radical BTR-60 upgrade by Muromteplovoz JSC, unveiled in 2011: engine moved forward and troop compartment moved to the rear with raised roof.

In 1991, seven Finnish conscripts drowned when their BTR-60 R-145BM sunk during an amphibious exercise. The vehicle was incorrectly loaded, and the hatches were opened because the cooling system was set wrong and the engines were overheating. A wave got them when they had to slow down.
