    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    BTR-80 8 x 8 Armoured Personnel Carrier is designed to carry personnel on the battlefield and provide close fire support. It can also carry out reconnaissance, combat support and patrol missions. It entered service with the Russian Army in the late 1980s and has since been used in a number of military conflicts, including UN peacekeeping operations. The vehicle is still in production and is in service with the Russian Army and a number of other countries.

    BTR-80 is superior to BTR-60/70 with a larger chassis, high angle-of- fire turret, and more powerful diesel engine (vs gasoline). Although the armament is same as BTR-60 and BTR-70, except for added smoke grenade dispensers on the back of the turret, the conical turret has been improved and the gun can elevate higher. The front and side firing ports have been greatly improved (square/inset, angled slightly forward). The side entrance problems found in BTR-60 & BTR-70 were fixed on BTR-80,the entrance new consisting of a two part door (upper and lower parts) which open outwards and is now big enough to load/unload cargo.
