    Many BRDMs are in service. Probably between 1500 and 2000 are currently active.

    I would be surprised there are 500 left in active service. You don't see them any more in photos or videos of training maneuvers.

    This might be the first(?) image of Tigr-M with installed Arbalet-DM RWS in Syria. Possibly be in service with a OBr SpN GU GSh unit - GRU spetsnaz - deployed in the country.

    Russian defense firm to offer Tigr armored vehicles with enhanced anti-mine protection

    The upgraded vehicle’s mine resistance will grow more than three-fold

    MOSCOW, July 25. /TASS/. Russia’s Military Industrial Company is completing work on the new generation of Tigr armored vehicles capable of withstanding a blast of 2kg in TNT equivalent under its bottom instead of the current 0.6 kg, the company’s press office told TASS on Wednesday.

    "The Tigr armored vehicle is being upgraded for the purpose of increasing its mine resistance to 2kg in TNT equivalent and raising its ballistic resistance to the class 6a under the GOST state technical standards and boosting the vehicle’s carrying capacity to 2 tonnes," the company said.

    The previous modification of the Tigr-M vehicle features class 5 armor and provides protection against explosives weighing up to 0.6 kg in TNT equivalent. Therefore, the upgraded vehicle’s mine resistance will grow more than three-fold. The vehicle’s increased carrying capacity will provide a possibility to mount new modules with heavy armament on it.

    "The work on the heavy upgrade of the Tigr armored vehicle is being carried out in compliance with the schedule. So far, as we promised, we plan to offer the vehicle this year," the defense manufacturer said.

    The class 5 protection shields military hardware against ordinary 7.62mm bullets with the ordinary steel core fired from the SVD sniper rifle within a firing distance of 10 meters. The class 6a ballistic resistance under the GOST standards offers protection against armor-piercing incendiary bullets with the special core fired from the SVD sniper rifle within a firing distance of 10 meters.

    According to open sources, Tigr armored vehicles are used by Special Forces and military police in the fight against terrorists in Syria. In such armed conflicts, a serious threat is posed by terrorists’ ambushes with the use of snipers and improvised explosives planted along the routes of military convoys.

    And some entertainment:

    Oh how turntables... lol1



    More photos and no subtlety​ whatsoever in link:

    They even copied cammo interiors. Didn't anyone tell them that is was not intentional design choice, folks at GAZ just wanted to get rid of some surplus material they had lying around so they used it as anti-spall lining. This is gift that keeps on giving...

    “Ural” to Supply Two-Axle Framed Rovers to Russian Army Since 2020

    Ural Automobile Plant (member of GAZ Group) is ready to supply the troops with the Ural-53099 four-wheel driven armored vehicles since 2020, an aware insider in defense industry told Mil.Press Today.

    The automobile represents the development of bonneted Typhoon-U family. It is a framed vehicle with an armored single-compartment body. It was developed under R&D project Typhoon on designing of an armored rover for airborne troops. Another vehicle created under that project is Typhoon-VDV by JSC Remdiesel.

    Russia to manufacture next-generation armored vehicle prototype in spring

    The Tigr-2 vehicle is being developed taking into account the experience of using Tigr-M vehicles in real combat conditions, including in Syria

    MOSCOW, December 14. /TASS/. The first prototype of Russia’s Tigr-2 next-generation armored vehicle being developed by Military Industrial Company will be ready in March-April 2019 after some adjustments ordered by the Defense Ministry, a source in the ministry told TASS on Friday.

    "Some requirements for the vehicle have changed and the developer has had to make some adjustments in the design. This has had its effect on the timeframe but not very much. In April, perhaps, in March next year," the source said, without specifying the requirements.

    TASS has no official confirmation of this information.

    Does anyone have a list including approximate numbers of what's A) in service with Russia B) what vehicles ade actually getting produced? seems like an explosion of various vehicles but nothing as to if they are getting produced.  

    tigr-M(inc dozer, vystrel), bpm-97, bulat, volk, typhoon series, buran and various others. I know vodnik wasn't taken by Russia but still up for export it wasn't that bad a vehicle going by what I've seen but I guess there was better or cheaper elsewhere.

    Wasn't the GAZ Vodnik procured a little for the Strategic Missile Troops? Think they have some in service.

    VERY few of them are in use. As you said, strategic missile troops as seen in some videos for de-mining (jamming, etc). I have also seen 1 I believe that is in Syria.

    yes a few were used in syria I heard some were in service with border guards never knew about missile troops. The did shoe case an AD model which actually looked quite good. Russia went from a Italian iveco design to a vast array of other own quite hard to keep track of them all.

    I think you are mixing Vodnik and Vystrel, which was designed for Border Guard and is used in Syria and was in use in Donbass as well.

    Tigr - 100
    Tigr-M - 400+
    Iveco LMV - 400
    Typhoon Kamaz - 300+
    Typhoon Ural - 200+
    Bulat - >100
    Vodnik - >50

    Scorpian - never seemed to get off the ground
