As “People’s Army” newspaper informs, the armored vehicle was presented during this year international exhibition “Arms and Security”.
BRDM-NIK (Armored Reconnaissance and Patrol Vehicle, modernized) is enhanced with front armor. The hull is manufactured from armor steel which is 10 millimeters thick. Mounted protective armor elements give it additional tenacity. This scheme of armor will allow for a considerable increase in the level of safety of the vehicle as well as its crew.
BRDM’s armament includes “Falconet” robotized combat module with guns of 14,5-mm caliber and 7,62 mm PKT. Employment of he combat module allows to increase the fire power of BRDM-NIK when needed.
Moreover, BRDM-NIK is equipped with new digital radiostations which provide reliable and secure communications.
At a present, the BRDM-NIK has passed plant trials.
