Russian tank for sale

BRDM-2 (BTR-40P-2)
Armored Reconnaissance Vehicle

To improve the amphibious characteristics and increase the combat power of their wheeled reconnaissance vehicles, the Soviets produced the BRDM-2. This russian tank was differs from the former BRDM in that the powerplant has improved and moved to the rear of the vehicle, and that a 14.5mm machinegun-armed turret has been fitted. This turret is identical to that found on the BTR-60PB armored personnel carrier tank. The original BRDM (BTR-40P) first appeared in 1959. The BRDM-2 also is known as BTR-40P-2 or BTR-40PB (hence also BTR-40P-2rkh or BTR-40PB-rkh, etc.). It was first seen in 1966 and by the mid-1980s was rapidly replacing the BRDM I in the Soviet and Warsaw Pact armies.

The BRDM-2 series, with maximum armor of 14 mm (Chrome Vanadium), can be penetrated by heavy artillery. Its tires are not protected by armor and are vulnerable to puncture from fire, even though the BRDM might go on because of its automatic infaltion system.

Like the earlier BRDM, the BRDM-2 is a fully armored, four-wheel drive, amphibious reconnaissance vehicle with two pairs of belly wheels and a centralized tire pressure regulation system for increased cross-country capability and a single water jet for propulsion through water. Externally, it differs from the BRDM due to a larger, box-like hull. It retains the boat-like bow of the BRDM, but the crew compartment has been moved farther forward and the engine has been moved to the rear. In the basic model, a conical turret is mounted on the hull in a central position above the belly wheels. There are two front cupolas, and vision blocks are located centrally on both sides. The engine is larger than in the BRDM (140hp V-8 as opposed to 90hp 6-cylinder). The BRDM-2 is fitted with an IR spotlight and IR driving lights as well as an NBC (ABC) filter system.

VARIANTS

Like the BRDM, the BRDM-2 Russian tank exists in several versions.

The BRDM-2rkh radiological-chemical reconnaissance vehicle is fitted with dispensers for emplacing warning flags around contaminated areas. The conical turret, which mounts two machine guns (1 4.5-mm and 7.62-mm), is unusual in that is has no top hatch opening. This model carries a crew of four (commander, gunner, driver, and co-driver). It also has a land navigation system that gives coordinate readings.
It is found in the regimental chemical defense company and at the division level in the chemical defense battalion as well as in the reconnaissance battalion.

This Russian tank is for sale. I bought it from the Czech Army after it got a complete overhaul for about 60.000 Euro (10 years ago) by a certified company. If you take the prices from that time, this overhaul would now cost 120.000 Euro.

It was taken completely into pieces and all mechanic parts were replaced against new ones. Actually just the body is the same. Also engine and gearbox were replaced against new ones from stock (no overhaul).
After that the tank staid on stock and was never used, till I got it. I made a service according the manual and it now works excellent. The engine has run only 200 km on the road. It has never been in the water.
I sell this Russian tank because we need the space. I know it is the best one in Czech Rep., as most others are being sold because of technical damages and the people who bought them didn’t do any service before using them. So most of them have the tank damaged because of not changing the oil, going across big rocks etc. They don’t understand that this is a historic vehicle and it has deserves good treatment, so that the next generation will still know how advanced, solid and easy to service this technology was.
