BTR-60/70/80/90 - Soviet/Russian wheeled APCs

(1/8) > >>

ChernayaAkula:
Found this rather interesting image of a 1/1 whif:

A Djiboutian BTR-60PB with turret of an AML-90.


SOURCE (with another pic)

The Soviet also trialled something similar on a BTR-70. Used an 85mm gun and was called 2S14. Nothing came of it, though.


SOURCE

Here are a couple of my takes on vehicles built on the BTR-80 family:

Tank destroyer (would need a lot of internal re-arranging to make this)


Tank destroyer (more conservative take)


Air defence (with 2S6 Tunguska turret)


Stretched


Getting silly...


Even built the less ambitious tank destroyer in 1/72 (hull from Trumpeter BTR-80, turret from Revell T-72M). All it needs are some blanking plates on the muzzle brake and a lick of paint....

GTX_Admin:
I like your thinking!

LemonJello:
Really digging that tank destroyer! Could be export competition for the Centauro, or Soviet-era copy for third world "fraternal socialist allies" that don't want/need the T-55?

Nice! That looks very believable. It's also easy to imagine less well-refined versions recycling older BTR hulls and T-55 turrets ... more akin to that Djibouti BTR-60 that you found.

"Getting silly" is obviously the executive-protection stretch limo model. :D  Be interesting to see it pulled up to an executive aircraft.
