BTR-80 and crew
Studio AlphA

Here is the first version (beta) of the BTR-80 including its crew. The BTR 80 comes in 2 models (Camo and green) with 3 crew members.

The Soviets based the BTR-80 on the BTR-70 APC. It has a single 260-hp, V-8 turbocharged, water-cooled, diesel engine, an improvement over the twin gasoline engines installed in the BTR-60 and BTR-70 vehicles. The reconfigured rear portion of the hull accommodates a new, single engine. The Soviets removed the roof chamfers of the modified BTR-70, raised the rear, and squared off the rearward-sloping engine compartment. Standard equipment include TNPO vision blocks, optical devices TNP-B and TKN-3 for the driver and commander, an OU-3GA2M infra-red search light, six 81 mm smoke grenade launchers 902V "Tucha", a radioset
(R-173 or R-163-50U), an intercom and hydrojets.

- Animated glass protextions (2 ways)
- Animated drivewheel and seat when the driver turn out
- All the cargo on top except the co-driver (7 cargo)
