New weapons can radically increase the firepower of the BRDM-2

It is known that about nine and a half thousand units were manufactured. In addition to the reconnaissance version, anti-tank missiles were created with several types of ATGMs, anti-aircraft missiles, for chemical defense troops, command and staff, etc. It is not surprising that in many countries "twos" are being modernized in order to extend their service life. At least three dozen options are known. As you might expect, the best versions are made in Russia. The first, which was mass-produced and entered the troops, was the BRDM-2M.
The latest version of the BRDM-2MS, which uses the most modern technologies, is considered even more advanced. For example, the commander's stabilized panoramic sight with a thermal imaging channel, which makes it possible to detect the enemy at a distance of up to 5 km in the daytime and up to 3.5 km at night. The armament remained the same - one 14.5-mm KPVT and a 7.62-mm PKTM paired with it. There is one more two-channel sight and an all-round view complex, consisting of six video cameras.
The protection has been thoroughly improved - thanks to the installation of armored panels, not only is invulnerability against 7.62 mm and 12.7 mm bullets, but also from 14.5 mm in the frontal projection at distances of 300 meters or more. Increased resistance to various mines. Performance is improved by the use of a 150 hp diesel engine. The maximum speed on the highway is up to 100 km / h. The machine can force water obstacles afloat. The power reserve is 1500 km.
