About the BTR-80:
The BTR-80 is an 8×8 wheeled amphibious armored personnel carrier, designed in the USSR. It was first deployed during the Soviet war in Afghanistan. The BTR-80 variant brought a redesigned mantle, which allows the 14.5mm KPVT and coaxial 7.62mm PKT machine guns to be elevated to a maximum of 60 degrees. This was important because it allowed for better engagement in urban fighting and for low slow flying air targets. The BTR-80 can climb a slope with up to 60% gradient and climb a vertical step of 0.5 m.
Initially developed in 1984, over 5,000+ units have been produced to present day. The BTR-80 has seen action in numerous wars, including the Iraqi insurgency, first and second Chechen Wars, and the Turkish-Kurdish conflicts. Weighing in at 13.6 tonnes, the BTR-80 can hold 3 crew and 7 passengers and reach a total top speed of 80-90km/h, or about 49.7-55.9m/h, and a swim speed of 10km/h, or 6.2m/h. Dozens of countries have forms of the BTR-80 available on demand as part of military vehicles.
