Trumpeter Russian APCs

Post  G Cooper on Wed May 18, 2011 12:45 am

Sometime in the near Suspect future Trumpeter is planning on releasing a series of the Russian BTR series of APCs. This should be the BTR-40, BTR-50, BTR-60, BTR-70, and the BTR-80.

Right now, all I can find is this for the BTR-40




BTR-50



BTR-60


Lots of kewl green things to sit next to T-55s and T-62s in the future.

I have seen pictures of the BTR-60 masters on Armorama. IIRC, the first BTR-60 to be released is supposed to be the command version. I'm looking forward to more BTR kits.

Hopefully Trumpeter will also release a new BMP-1 and BMP-2 kits.

I remember reading a defence review of these (and other Soviet) APCs, and the consensus was that the rear compartment was too confined to make the gun ports useable.

Looked good in the Red Square parades though.
