135 BMD-1s will be modernized for 1.9 billion roubles, or 14.8 million roubles per unit.
But the modernization is to bring them up to....drumroll...BMD-2 status .
BTR-82 with the 30mm is supposedly not very accurate when firing anything more than single shots.
This is of because of the installation, a heavier turret, the 100mm paired gun as a stiffener, and tracked chassis. BTR-80 installation is much simper and you can see the gun spassing all over the place when burst firing.
Spetsnaz surround the building with the bad guys inside, shoot off a few rounds, fire off a few RPG's, kill a Haji or two, then the BTR comes in, takes down the building, and finishes the job. Am I right?
... close... it is usually an RPO that brings the house down...
