Description: Soviet BTR-60 is an 8-wheeled, amphibious armored vehicle intended for troops transport as a replacement for BTR-152. It is powered by two 90-hp gasoline engines and equipped with turret-mounted 12.7mm gun that provides fire support. BTR-60 accommodates as many as 12/14 fully equipped troops in addition to its two-man crew. It was widely deployed in Afghanistan protecting Soviet convoys. The Soviet Army and over 30 international customers ordered the BTR-60 vehicle.
Numerically it was the most important BTR series vehicle produced by the former Soviet Union. Currently, BTR-60 is apparently obsolete fitted with a light armor that no longer provides enough protection. Nevertheless, BTR-60 remains actively in service in significant numbers in many third world countries.
