    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.

    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...
